Services

We gather a detailed, comprehensive assessment of your overall health, medical history, complaints, medications, and lifestyle. We are trained to diagnose and treat the condition that is causing your joint and muscle pain. One of our primary concerns is early detection and treatment to help you live a happier, healthier you. 

 

If you suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune diseases or bone conditions, we can help you feel better and get back to doing the activities you enjoy. Below is a list of conditions we currently treat.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) is an autoimmune disease. In this disease, the immune system of the body mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. It can affect the skin, joints, kidneys, brain, and other organs. This condition can be treated with Corticosteroids and/or Immunosuppressive drugs.

Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a medical condition in which the bones become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue, typically as a result of hormonal changes, or deficiency of calcium or vitamin D. This condition can be treated with Vitamin Supplement, Dietary supplement, and/or Bone health medication.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis — a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin lesions appear. This disease can be treated with biologics.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone, most common from middle age onward. It causes pain and stiffness, especially in the hip, knee, and thumb joints. This condition can be treated with NSAIDs.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic progressive disease-causing inflammation in the joints and resulting in painful deformity and immobility, especially in the fingers, wrists, feet, and ankles. This disease can be treated with medication such as mild Immunosuppressant drugs or biologics.

Polymyositis

Polymyositis is a type of chronic inflammation of the muscles that causes muscle weakness. Also, it is related to dermatomyositis and inclusion body myositis. This condition can be treated with Corticosteroids, Corticosteroid-sparing agents, or biologics.

Raynaud's Disease

Raynaud's Disease is a disease characterized by spasm of the arteries in the extremities, especially the fingers and toes. It is typically brought on by constant cold or vibration, and leads to pallor, pain, numbness, and in severe cases, gangrene. This condition can be treated with antihypertensive drugs and/or with calcium channel blockers.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in localized areas. This condition can be treated with NSAIDs, nerve pain medication, muscle relaxants, and/or analgesic.

Gout

Gout is a disease in which defective metabolism of uric acid causes arthritis, especially in the smaller bones of the feet, deposition of chalk-stones, and episodes of acute pain. This condition can be treated with Corticosteroids, NSAIDs, or Colchicine

Pseudogout

Pseudogout is a form of arthritis characterized by sudden, painful swelling in one or more of your joints. Also called calcium pyrophosphate deposition disease or CPPD, the common term "pseudogout" was chosen for the condition's similarity to gout. This condition can be treated with steroids, NSAIDs, or Colchicine.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of spinal arthritis, mostly affecting young males, that eventually causes ankylosis of vertebral and Sacro-iliac joints. This condition can be treated with NSAIDs or biologics.
