What is Arthritis?
Every day, millions of people are affected by a chronic joint condition known as arthritis. It can range from mild to debilitating discomfort, though it often interrupts sleep patterns, affects mobility, and hinders regular, everyday activities. These flare-ups can occur at various intervals, including days or even weeks with no certain way of pinpointing when one may happen. While we often associate arthritis with the elderly, this condition can also appear early in life as a result of injury (post-traumatic arthritis).
At Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, we are able to utilize state-of-the-art treatment methods in order to quickly and effectively treat arthritis without the need for any form of surgical techniques. If you or someone you know have been suffering from the effects of arthritis, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Christie Lehman at our Asheville, NC facility today.
"The ARO staff and practice are Special from the Front Desk to the treatment rooms. I first approached Dr. Lehman with numerous orthopedic issues. She has examined, evaluated, and described viable treatments for each, beginning with the least invasive. I was able to choose from her recommendations based on my preferences and circumstances. I am still a work in progress and experiencing excellent improvement ! All of that is great. But, it is the Caring which guides the whole process that makes Dr. Lehman and the experience So Special !!"- T.D. / Google / May 11, 2021
"Dr Lehaman takes pride in her practice . I can not reccomend her enough. She takes pride in her work and wants her patients to feel better. I wish I would have met her 2 years ago before all the other treatment I went through. I was so much better in 3 weeks and could use my arm again after 2 years of not being able to... I would give a 100 stars if I could"- D.S. / Google / Feb 17, 2021

"Dr. Lehman is the reason my 99 year old mother is still able to keep walking, relatively pain free. Because of her age, no one will perform surgery on my mothers knees. Dr. Lehman meet with mom about 3 years to discuss what can actually be done to help mom with her painful knees. Since that time, mom has been able to get fairly long term relief from the treatments Dr. Lehman has offered. Thank you Dr. Lehman, we owe you so much!!"- N.A. / Google / Jan 19, 2021

How Can Arthritis be Treated?
With arthritis treatment, our team attempts to alleviate the symptoms of the conditions while simultaneously improving the function of the affected joint. There are several forms of treatment offered at Asheville Regenerative Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, and the results of each will vary from one patient to another.
In some cases, this treatment may be as simple as modifying activity, and using topical medications, oral supplements, NSAIDs, or Tylenol. However, others may require some form of physical therapy, bracing or viscosupplementation. Additionally, our facility is a Regenexx® partner, which allows us to perform state-of-the-art regenerative procedures that utilize growth factors from the patient's own body in order to stimulate natural healing. During your initial consultation, Dr. Lehman will perform an in-depth analysis of your joint to determine if you have arthritis, as well as which treatment is most likely to provide the best results for your body.
