What is Rheumatology?

Rheumatology is a branch of medicine that deals with rheumatic diseases. These are conditions that affect your joints, muscles, bones, and tissues that hold your body together. They can be different kinds of problems, from autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus to issues like osteoarthritis and fibromyalgia. These diseases can make you feel pain, stiffness, and inflammation, and they can affect how well you can move and live your life.

At Volusia Medical Center, our way of helping with rheumatology is all about kindness, knowledge, and focusing on you. We know how tough rheumatic diseases can be and how much they can change your life. That's why we spend time listening to what you have to say, check everything carefully, and make a treatment plan that fits you and what you want to achieve.

Services We Offer in Rheumatology

1. Comprehensive Rheumatologic Evaluations

Our team does careful checkups to understand your symptoms, medical history, and what we find during a physical exam. We use advanced tests and imaging scans to make sure we get it right and decide on the best treatment.

2. Medication Management

We prescribe you medicines to help with symptoms, lower inflammation, and slow down how fast the disease gets worse. This might include different types of drugs like DMARDs, biologics, steroids, NSAIDs, and painkillers.

3. Joint Injections

We give shots into your joints to put medicine right where it's needed. This helps ease pain and swelling in joints affected by conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and gout.

4. Infusion Therapy

For patients with tough or serious rheumatic diseases, we provide IV treatment. This means giving powerful medications through a vein in a controlled environment. IV treatment can help ease inflammation, improve symptoms, and slow down how fast the disease gets worse.

5. Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation

We team up with physical therapists to create exercise plans and recovery methods customized to boost joint movement, muscle strength, and function. This kind of therapy can assist people with rheumatic diseases in staying self-sufficient and enhancing their overall well-being.

6. Lifestyle Counseling

We provide guidance and support in changing your daily habits to feel better and manage symptoms to improve overall health and well-being. This might include advice on things like exercise, eating healthy, managing stress, quitting smoking, and protecting your joints.

7. Patient Education and Support

We offer educational resources and support services to help you learn more about your condition, treatment choices, and how to take care of yourself. Our goal is to give you the knowledge and tools to be involved in your care and make smart decisions about your health.
