Artus Arthritis

Early Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory arthritis that can lead to permanent joint damage and disability.  In many cases, when treated early and aggressively, this damage can be prevented.  As a result ARTUS Health Centre offers rapid assessment for suspected early rheumatoid arthritis cases.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Up to one third of patients with psoriasis (an inflammatory, scaling skin condition) can develop arthritis related to their psoriasis.  ARTUS Health Centre specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of psoriatic arthritis.

Spondyloarthritis/ Ankylosing Spondylitis

The spondyloarthropathies represent a group of auto-inflammatory conditions where the primary symptoms are inflammatory back pain and joint involvement. These conditions have overlap with inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s / colitis) as well as inflammatory eye diseases (uveitis/ iritis).  ARTUS Health Centre and Bruce Clark Physical Therapy have extensive background in diagnosis and treating these conditions

Gout

Gout is an intermittent inflammatory arthritis that is related to the build up of uric acid in the body.  The arthritis “attacks” from gout can be excruciating.  Through preventative strategies and medical therapy, gout can be effectively controlled.
