Rheumatologic and Myofascial Pain

  • Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal syndrome that causes widespread pain and tenderness in the muscles, ligaments and tendons of the body and extreme fatigue.
  • Inflammatory Arthritis is a condition in which the joints become inflamed. The symptoms of this condition are included but are not limited to joint pain, joint swelling and loss of joint functions. The pain associated with inflammatory arthritis is often described as a radiating ache that permeates down to the bone.
  • Lupus is an auto-immune disorder that can affect various areas of the body. This disease can cause a plethora of symptoms, including headaches, joint swelling and aching and chest pains. 
  • Lyme Disease is caused by tick bites and can cause a variety of symptoms, even years after having been bit. Pain manifests itself through severe joint swelling, along with neurological problems and inflammation.
  • Osteoarthritis is a condition causing the wearing away of joint cartilage and the underlying bone. The pain of this condition is typically described as achy rather than sharp, but is experienced differently every day.
  • Plantar Fascitis is a common type of heel pain. The plantar fascia is the tissue that connects the heel to the toes. Should this become inflamed, plantar fasciitis develops. This condition typically manifests itself through stabbing pains in the feet, especially when taking first steps in the morning.
