Rheumatologists treat a variety of complex inflammatory conditions involving the joints, connective tissues, autoimmune system and blood vessels, including arthritis, osteoporosis, lupus, back pain and fibromyalgia. Many of these conditions are challenging to diagnose, and are of a degenerative nature, potentially resulting in lifelong disability and discomfort if not detected and treated early by a medical professional with specialty training in rheumatologic disorders.
Oftentimes, rheumatologists will work in concert with additional specialists such as pain management physicians, physical therapists and occupational therapists to achieve the most comprehensive and effective plan of treatment.
Watson Clinic’s team of board-certified rheumatologists all have specialized training in the fields of internal medicine and rheumatology.
