Rheumatic conditions involves pain, inflammation and dysfunction in the joints and muscles. They can be caused by infection (lyme), an imbalanced immune system (lupus/RA), or chronic inflammation (osteoporosis). Dr. Woodall's philosophy for appropriate patient care includes working side by side with a rheumatologist and a Naturopathic Doctor on their health care team.
Many drugs that are designed for rheumatic conditions can be very helpful from a symptom stand point but do not address the underlying cause of the disease process. These medications also carry significant risks for cancer and infection.
By working with Dr. Woodall, goals will be established to find the underlying cause of an over-active immune system, restore balance as well as build a thriving lifestyle with optimum quality of life.
