Rheumatic Diseases We Treat in Manahawkin
Our expert arthritis doctors serving Manahawkin are here to treat a variety of different conditions that cause pain and swelling in the joints and musculoskeletal system. Many physical conditions are often associated with stress or malfunctions in the immune system. Common rheumatic conditions that we specialize in include:
Fibromyalgia is a neurologic health condition that causes sensitivity to touch. This is a chronic illness that causes symptoms such as fatigue and sleep problems.
Gout is a painful, sometimes debilitating form of arthritis. Symptoms can include painful swelling in single joints, especially the feet and in particular, the big toe. Gout is a treatable disease, which can be combated by avoiding specific foods or medications.
Lupus is a chronic disease that causes systemic inflammation affecting multiple organs, the skin, and joints. Lupus can cause mild to serious flare-ups.
This is a common type of degenerative disease. Osteoarthritis occurs in the joints. Just about every joint in the body can develop osteoarthritis. However, the most common areas are the knees, hips, neck, hands, or lower back.
Usually our bodies continuously absorb and replace bone tissue. However, an individual with osteoporosis either loses too much bone, makes too little, or a combination of both. When one’s bones become weaker, they are more likely to break. This happens most commonly in the hip, spine or wrist.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a disabling autoimmune disease. This type of arthritis can cause joint pain, swelling, stiffness, and decreased movement in the joints.
