Arthritis & Rheumatology

Care for muscle and joint pain caused by arthritis or autoimmune conditions

Arthritis Care & Rheumatology at Beverly Hospital

Joint and muscle pain can be uncomfortable and slow you down. While some pain goes away quickly, it becomes a problem when it doesn’t. Lasting pain can cause swelling, stiffness and even joint damage, making it hard to do everyday tasks.

Rheumatologists treat patients who are suffering from disturbances in their joints, ligaments, muscles, tendons and blood vessels. Some of the more common conditions rheumatologists see include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus and osteoporosis. Aging, autoimmune dysfunctions and/or metabolic imbalances tend to contribute to these types of conditions.

If you experience joint and muscle pain, the rheumatology experts at Beverly Hospital are here to help. We can help diagnose, treat and manage various health conditions.

We also have expertise treating autoimmune diseases. These are conditions that cause the body to attack itself. They cause inflammation, which can damage joints and muscles and cause pain. Certain kinds of arthritis are autoimmune conditions.
