This is a clinical bedside approach to treating the patient with multiple aches and pains based on the target of inflammation in the joint and the distribution of affected joints. Using this approach, we can sort out non-inflammatory arthritis as represented by osteoarthritis from inflammatory synovitis (rheumatoid arthritis), inflammatory enthesitis (ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis), and non-inflammatory rheumatic conditions like fibromyalgia. The use of X-rays, ultrasound, and MRI, and common laboratory studies like ESR, CRP, rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP, and ANA will be discussed.
