Several treatments for rheumatoid arthritis can reduce or eliminate pannus, abnormal tissue that causes joint swelling and cartilage degeneration.

The sooner doctors can diagnose rheumatoid arthritis, using medical imaging, physical examinations, joint swelling, and blood tests, the sooner it can be treated.

Rheumatoid arthritis symptoms often present pain and swelling in the hands and feet symmetrically, and include joint stiffness, fatigue, fever, and depression.

Treatments for rheumatoid arthritis, such as medication, exercise, and possibly surgery, are aimed to reduce pain, increase joint function, and slow damage.
