Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) Types, Causes, Stages, and Treatments!

Treatment Overview

There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis, but the disease can be managed with medication. If symptoms don’t respond well to medication, your doctor may recommend surgery or alternative medicine.

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for RA, but various medications and therapies can help control the symptoms. Although there is no single cure for RA, many treatment options are available.


Medications are the fastest way to control RA symptoms, although it takes time to find the right one. Most RA medications work by blocking or suppressing inflammation, and the most common are nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and corticosteroids. We also have disease-modifying agents or biological therapy only used in rheumatoid arthritis.
