Chronic joint pain can occur as a result of inflammatory and degenerative disease. Unfortunately, the cause of a variety of rheumatic diseases is still largely unknown. So we work tirelessly to resolve their symptoms and, where possible, to turn off the disease process altogether. Our team of Rheumatologists uses their combined knowledge to help Brisbane locals achieve pain-free mobility and improve their overall quality of life. The most common conditions that can lead to joint pain include:

  • Osteoarthritis (OA)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica
  • Ankylosing spondylitis (AS)
  • Gout
  • Lupus
  • Connective tissue diseases like Scleroderma

At a younger age, joint pain is most often caused by underlying inflammatory conditions whereas the elderly are most commonly affected by osteoarthritis. When left untreated, joint pain can progress, causing pain that may prevent you from carrying out simple tasks, like climbing stairs, walking, and getting up from chairs or bed.

If you are experiencing joint pain that has limited your daily activity, feel free to contact us. You can book an appointment with us today for a consultation and/or treatment by calling us at (07) 3255 1533.
