Rheumatology is a branch of healthcare that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of autoimmune and inflammatory diseases that affect the body’s musculoskeletal systems, including joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

Because of the complex and ever-changing nature of many rheumatic diseases, patients may need frequent and ongoing evaluations and treatments. By offering Rheumatology services at LCHC, the need to travel has been greatly reduced.

Conditions treated include:

  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune Diseases
  • Bursitis
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
  • De Quervain’s Disease
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Elbow problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gout
  • Lupus
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteomalacia
  • Osteoporosis
  • Raynaud’s Phenomenon
  • Spondylitis

  • …and more!
