Pain Management during Arthritis
The pain is usually a sharp type of pain with movement and when patients get in certain positions the pain gets a little less, because they find a situation of comfort, explains Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care.
He also says it depends on if somebody has back conditions. In the mornings, people who have it report they wake up with stiffness in their back, difficulty moving and the pain is sharp and aching.
When the bones are inflamed from arthritis, the muscles get tight and inflamed as well, the doctor affirms.
