Dr. Tehniat Haider
Arthritis is a painful condition that can become debilitating and deprive people of their abilities to work and play. Thanks to the help of rheumatologists, like Dr. Tehniat Haider, people suffering from arthritis can receive help for the pain and fatigue that puts their lives on hold.
Trained as internists or pediatricians, rheumatologists are physicians who have additional education and experience specifically in the field of diagnosing and treating arthritis and other conditions affecting the joints, soft tissues and connective tissues.
Rheumatologists specialize in diagnosing and treating autoimmune diseases such as Lupus, Sjogrens, myositis etc. They also treat psoriasis, gout, and osteoporosis.
Patients suffering from severe, long-term joint and muscle pain may find their ability to work and care for themselves compromised. In these cases, the additional support and diagnostic and therapeutic resources provided by a rheumatologist can help primary care physicians make a more accurate diagnosis and provide more focused care. In early stages, most rheumatic conditions can be very difficult to diagnose, but rheumatologists undergo specific training that enables them to identify these conditions at their onset.
