Chronic Inflammatory Diseases/Lyme Disease
Lyme Disease is a vector borne disease in which bacteria Borrelia Burgdorferi infiltrates body tissues and causes internal destruction. There are acute and chronic stages of the disease and treatments vary from antibiotics to herbals and alternative therapies. Patients are usually not “cured” unless it is effectively eradicated in the acute phase. Children are at the highest risk of contracting Lyme disease and are more vulnerable to central nervous system infections. Lyme disease has been called “The Great Imitator” and can be mistaken for ALS, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, autism and other difficult-to-diagnose multi-system illnesses. We offer a unique and structured program providing physical therapy services for patients with Lyme Disease and Associated Inflammatory conditions which will educate, empower and facilitate optimal health and wellness.
