What treatments are available for chronic diseases?

The Desert Wells Family Medicine office is fully equipped to treat a variety of chronic diseases. The medical team stays up-to-date with the latest treatment options for chronic pain, mental health issues, and progressive medical conditions.

Many diseases, like high cholesterol and diabetes, require medication therapy and your provider carefully monitors how well prescribed treatments are working for you. They also ensure you can properly manage your medications if you need to take multiple prescriptions at the same time.

If you have chronic pain from joint disease or as a result of an injury, the Desert Wells Family Medicine team offers in-office injection therapies to alleviate inflammation and control pain.

In addition to services for treating your symptoms and slowing down the progression of your disease, the Desert Wells Family Medicine team evaluates your lifestyle, dietary needs, job, and other factors that may be contributing to your pain or worsening your condition. For example, if you smoke and have COPD or asthma, they provide smoking cessation options.

They work closely with you to help you make necessary lifestyle changes that will increase your quality of life despite a chronic disease.
