When pain in the joints, muscles, or bones is severe or persists for more than a few days, it is necessary to visit your Rheumatologist 

Many types of rheumatic diseases are not easily identified in the early stages. Rheumatologists are specially trained to do the detective work necessary to discover the cause of swelling and pain. It's important to determine a correct diagnosis early so that appropriate treatment can begin early. Some musculoskeletal disorders respond best to treatment in the early stages of the disease. Some diseases our Rheumatologist is knowledgeable of include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Autoimmune diseases, such as lupus, antiphospholipid syndrome, scleroderma
  • Musculoskeletal pain disorders
