Arthritic joint complaints

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Dr. William Ferrar is helping his patients with arthritic joint complaints.

In some cases, these complaints are because the finger joints may be gnarled with some bone spurs on x-rays, but are not warm or red and are supple once the activity of the hand has gone on for a few minutes.

It is important to recognize that the cartilage is intact in the joint or the pain could worsen with continued use.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) may help with the symptoms.
