At Providence, we know how inflammation of joints and muscles can cause intense pain and keep you from enjoying your life. We help you reclaim your life by detecting and treating both mild and serious symptoms of rheumatism.
Rheumatic disorders are often difficult to manage, so we make sure to provide specialized care for accurate diagnoses and precise treatments. Your primary care physician will refer you to a rheumatologist if he or she suspects one of several rheumatic conditions including:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Back or joint pain
Our rheumatologic care doesn’t stop at joint issues. Rheumatology specialists also treat soft tissue problems, often suffered by athletes, including:
- Education programs
- Occupational therapy
Diagnosing and treating some rheumatic disorders can be very difficult so it’s important to see a specialist if your physician recommends further treatment.
