As we age, pain in our joints can become part of our daily lives.
Luckily, there are programs and specialists all in one place that can help reduce and manage your pain by working closely with your physician.
Dr. Aaron Garza, a rheumatologist at Gonzaba Medical Group, said the group offers in-house services such as urgent care, specialty care, preventative services and physical medicine.
“It basically entails the fact that there are multiple people involved in the care of a patient. It’s called a multidisciplinary approach,” Garza said. “We have physical therapy therapists, and the primary care doctor is involved mainly as the director of the care.”
If you experience pain or discomfort, the first thing to do is consult with your primary care physician to see if arthritis is a possibility.
“The whole idea is trying to decipher where the pain is coming from,” Garza said.
For those who may be looking for personalized, coordinated care, Gonzaba Medical Group says it has been serving the San Antonio community with premier senior care for 60 years.
The medical group offers grocery giveaways for seniors, Zumba classes, free technology training, coordinated care, in-house specialty care and in-house imaging services.
