Because rheumatoid conditions can affect different areas of the body, the treatment approach will depend on the nature and severity of your condition. Following diagnosis, our consultant rheumatologist will develop a comprehensive treatment plan to provide you with quick relief and long-term improvement.
You can expect some of the following treatments to be included in your plan:
Lifestyle changes. These may include specific exercises to relieve stress from your joints and keep them moving to avoid them from becoming or remaining stiff.
Physiotherapy. Our rheumatology specialist may refer you to our physiotherapy clinic. Our Physiotherapists can help you improve joint strength with personalized exercises and teach you how to ease the joints strain in your daily life.
Medication. The doctor may prescribe some medications to manage pain levels and help you perform your daily tasks.
Steroid injections. These help to relieve pain and stiffness and can also reduce swelling and inflammation.
Surgery. We are keen to do our best to keep surgical intervention as a last resort, but there are some cases where the surgical option will be the only answer to resolving the issue.
