What is Local Rheumatologist

Whether you have an orthopedic condition such as arthritis, have a sports injury such as a golf injury or are recovering from orthopedic surgery for a condition such as trigger finger, you may work with a local orthopedic surgeon. Some patients will also work with a local rheumatologist, who is a doctor who specializes in treating autoimmune diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. There is quite a bit of overlap between rheumatology and orthopedics. For example, if you need a hip replacement due to arthritis you may see a local rheumatologist for medication and a local orthopedic surgeon for the surgery.

Depending on the type of arthritis or inflammatory condition you have, a local rheumatologist may prescribe medications such as leflunomide, methoxtrexate, Cosentyx, cortisone shots or prednisone. Inflammatory conditions such as arthritis cause the body to attack itself, although the exact causes aren’t entirely clear. A local rheumatologist can work with your team of health providers to ensure that you’re getting optimal arthritis care, whether it’s a registered dietitian, an endocrinologist or a physiotherapist.   Trouvez des informations ou des prouveurs locaux comme un rhumatologue local à montréal et à québec

Often seeing your local family Physician is a great starting place for referrals to your local Massage Therapist or your local chiropractor to help with massage and skeletal adjustments. A local Physiotherapist or local athletic trainer can help with strength and bruised muscles. Acupuncture is often recommended for chronic pain in association with your local physiotherapist
