Dr. Harvey Finkelstein MD: Controlling the Pain of Arthritis
Controlling the pain of osteoarthritis is one of the ways in which Dr. Harvey Finkelstein MD helps his patients. One of the useful tools in the arsenal against arthritic pain is analgesics. These types of medications, of which acetaminophen is one, help to relieve the pain of arthritis, but not the inflammation or swelling caused by arthritis. Since analgesics usually produce fewer side effects this kind of medication is a good choice if reducing swelling and inflammation is not a major concern.
