We have a network of specialists who are ready to diagnose your condition and create a comprehensive treatment plan together that works for you.
Conditions We Treat
Arthritis is inflammation in the joints. This inflammation causes pain and stiffness that can worsen as a person ages. Arthritis is a very common condition that cannot be cured, but can be treated with medication, physical therapy or sometimes surgery.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes widespread muscle pain throughout the body. This condition cannot be cured, but can be treated to help symptoms.
Gout is a form of arthritis that occurs when uric acid crystallizes in the joints. This causes swelling and severe pain and often occurs in the big toe.
Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease causing the body to attack its own tissues. Inflammation from lupus can damage many different systems within the body.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that comes from deer ticks. The infected tick bite causes a rash and flu-like symptoms. Lyme disease can be severe, but most people recover completely after antibiotic treatment.
Osteoporosis is a disease where the bones become less dense causing them to be porous, brittle and weak. As the bones become more fragile, the risk of bone fracture increases. Weight-bearing exercise, such as walking and yoga, can help fight this disease.
