What is Local Rheumatologist

A local rheumatologist is a physician who specializes in treating patients who have inflammatory disorders of the joints, bones and muscles. Some examples of diseases that a local rheumatologist treats include arthritis, gout, ankylosing spondylitis and Lyme disease. People who are obese or overweight are at a higher risk of developing arthritis and may benefit from working with a local rheumatologist. Extra weight puts strain on the joints and can make arthritis symptoms worse. Obesity has become an epidemic around the world. An adult is considered obese if they have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more. A local rheumatologist can support people who are obese or overweight by diagnosing and treating inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. A local rheumatologist can also provide nutritional counseling and help you learn more about eating an anti-inflammatory diet. They can help you understand the benefits of exercise and recommend orthotics. A local rheumatologist can work with your health care team, from your local family physician and pharmacist to your cardiologist and physiotherapist.
