Immune System Care
Rheumatology cares for people with joint pain, swelling and loss of movement due to inflammatory and autoimmune conditions.
Wellstar’s rheumatologists diagnose and treat patients with diseases affecting the bones, muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Inflammatory and autoimmune conditions can make it difficult to walk and function daily. Our skilled rheumatologists help patients manage pain, swelling, and loss of movement to improve their quality of life.
Patients experiencing swollen areas, loss of motion, warmth or pain in the joints can benefit from care by a rheumatologist. A person’s immune system causes some common rheumatic diseases. They include arthritis, lupus, scleroderma and Sjögren’s syndrome. Our rheumatologists diagnose and treat these conditions with medication, exercise, nutrition programs and stress management.
