Outpatient Specialty Care for Rheumatic Diseases
We will diagnose your rheumatic disease and proceed to start treatment. The treatment for rheumatic diseases includes medication for pain and inflammation, regular exercise, stress management, a healthy diet and rest. Dr. Alissa will help you find the best way to manage your condition. Acquiring knowledge and positively approaching your new lifestyle will have you living well, despite your diagnosis.
Ultrasound Therapeutic Joint Injection
Dr. Alissa performs ultrasound therapeutic joint injections to take the fluid out of a joint and inject medications into the joint space. Injected joints commonly include:
- Base of the Thumb
- Small Joints of the Hands/Feet
Joint injections provide pain relief and improved mobility. An added benefit of treatment can possibly avoid costly and painful surgery. We want to bring the best care possible to get you back living your life to the fullest.
Limited Diagnostic Ultrasonography
Limited diagnostic ultrasonography is an imaging technique for the diagnosis and follow up for patients with rheumatic diseases. We use this method commonly for the use of assessment of soft tissue disease and the detection of fluid collection. It also visualizes other structures, such as cartilage and bone surfaces. We ultimately use this method to monitor treatment.
