Frequently Asked Questions

What are the symptoms of osteoarthritis?

Symptoms of osteoarthritis can vary from person to person, and although they slowly happen over time, they also progressively intensify. You may feel pain during movement, joint stiffness, pain that is worse towards the end of the day, discomfort when pressing on the area with your fingers, a limited range of motion, swelling, or clicking, popping and cracking sounds.

What causes osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that cushions the ends of bones in your joints deteriorates over time. Cartilage is a firm, slippery tissue that enables smooth joint motion. If the cartilage wears down completely, bone will rub on bone.

What are osteoarthritis risk factors?

The risk of osteoarthritis increases with age. Women are more likely to develop osteoarthritis, though it isn’t clear why. Carrying extra body weight contributes to osteoarthritis as increased weight adds stress to weight-bearing joints, such as your hips and knees. Also, fat tissue produces proteins that can cause harmful inflammation in and around your joints. Injuries, such as those that occur when playing sports or from an accident, can increase the risk of osteoarthritis. Even injuries that occurred many years ago and seemingly healed can increase your risk of osteoarthritis. If your job or a sport you play places repetitive stress on a joint, that joint might eventually develop osteoarthritis. Some people inherit a tendency to develop osteoarthritis. Others are born with malformed joints or defective cartilage.

What are treatments for osteoarthritis?

There is no cure for osteoarthritis, and once the damage to the joints is done it cannot be reversed. Treatment for osteoarthritis is centered on symptom management. Some medication that can help with managing symptoms are analgesics, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and Duloxetine (Cymbalta).

What are some lifestyle changes to prevent osteoarthritis?

If you’re trying to prevent developing osteoarthritis, make sure to get plenty of exercise and eat a healthy diet. If possible, avoid repeating motions or activities that place excessive strain on your joints. If you’re trying to manage existing osteoarthritis, physical therapy, weight loss, proper sleep, and even surgery are all ways to improve functioning.

    DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!

    Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.

    I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
