Unfortunately for many who suffer from any of the 100 different rheumatic conditions which impact tens of millions of Americans of all ages, sexes and backgrounds, getting out and enjoying all Lansing has to offer can be difficult. Chronic pain, swelling and other symptoms make it simpler to just stay home than face these symptoms. Unfortunately, staying in and reducing your activity level can not only affect your state of mind but can further exacerbate these symptoms making it even more difficult to get out.
While many of these conditions may not be curable yet, most are controllable thanks to treatments offered by rheumatologists.
