About Arthritis and Autoimmune Diseases

Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases can affect virtually any part of the body — from your neck to your knees to your fingers and toes — making it difficult for you to walk, climb stairs and accomplish simple tasks.

Common symptoms can include swollen or stiff joints, which can cause discomfort in muscles, bones or skin. Ascension's rheumatology care programs can help alleviate the pain of arthritis and increase your joint mobility. Because rheumatic diseases are often complex, our experts work closely with you over a period of time to customize a treatment plan that works best for your needs.

In the course of your treatment program, our rheumatologists, program coordinators, physical therapists, occupational therapists and rehabilitation psychologists all work together to ensure you get the care and services you need to help keep you moving.
