Emerald Coast Rheumatology
Dr. Kenawy specializes in the Treatment of Arthritis and other Rheumatic Diseases. Today, millions of Americans are affected by some form of arthritis. Arthritis is the leading cause of pain and disability in the United States. There are more than 100 types of arthritis, but it has three tell-tale signs: pain, stiffness, and swollen joints. Fatigue is also common. While some types of arthritis can be mildly nagging, other forms of arthritis can be serious and debilitating. Accurate and early diagnosis is important to minimizing joint damage and disability while maximizing and preserving mobility and function. The most common types of arthritis in adults include rheumatoid arthritis (RA), osteoarthritis (OA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), psoriatic arthritis (PA), lupus, Sjögren’s syndrome, scleroderma, gout, and osteoporosis.
