This manuscript explains to both patients and Rheumatologists, in an informative and readable manner, the bewildering labyrinth through which Rheumatology has been led in order to treat and manage the many forms of Arthritis, since Cortisone was announced in the 1950s and then withdrawn. Arthritis Treatment aims its help and barbs in three directions: treating arthritis, treatment roadblocks, and the future.
