Infusion Therapy for Rheumatoid Arthritis

“Rheumatoid arthritis, or RA, is the most common type of autoimmune arthritis,” says Darush Rahmani, DORheumatologist at ARC Round Rock. In this recent podcast from the ARC Healthcare Minute, Dr. Rahmani discusses infusion therapy as one possible treatment for RA.

Dr. Rahmani says, “Infusion therapy is one form of treatment used for patients with active inflammatory arthritis and other conditions to help prevent damage to bones and joints.” He adds, “Infusion therapy helps patients gain normal function or decrease pain, swelling and stiffness in their joints and muscles, and for treatment of silent disorders like osteoporosis.”
