Yankton Medical Clinic’s rheumatology services offer diagnoses and treatments for patients suffering pain affecting their joints and connective tissues. Our rheumatologist works with patients who are dealing with arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and complex forms of gout. They also help treat patients with lupus and vasculitis, musculoskeletal pain disorders such as fibromyalgia, and a variety of other medical conditions.
As part of Yankton Medical Clinic’s array of healthcare services, rheumatology plays an important role in providing care for patients suffering from pain. Because the musculoskeletal system is central to patients’ ability to live and function normally, maintaining healthy joints and muscles and appropriately treating underlying rheumatic diseases is vital. Rheumatology helps patients live with as little pain as possible and retain the function of their joints.
While some rheumatologic conditions are not curable, most are very treatable. Patients should not be discouraged from receiving care if their condition is not curable since treatment can help to lessen their pain and help them function on a day-to-day basis. If you or a loved one are suffering from joint pain, you won’t know how much better it’s possible to feel if treatment isn’t pursued.
