Treatment of Chronic Disease

Having a primary care doctor that you trust is key to helping you manage chronic illnesses.

Here at Rios Healthcare Associates, our Houston, TX, board-certified doctors Dr. Tomas Rios and Dr. Nicolin Neal understand that managing and treating chronic diseases isn’t always easy. After all, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach. Fortunately, Dr. Rios and Dr. Neal can work with you to find the treatment options that best fit your unique needs and health concerns.

Some of the most common chronic diseases we see include,

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis

When it comes to managing one or more chronic diseases, your physician is an integral part of crafting a treatment plan that will help you lead the best life possible while also managing symptoms and preventing complications.

Ways We Manage Chronic Diseases

Not all chronic diseases will respond to the same types of treatments. This is why our Houston, TX, team of physicians can craft a treatment plan that’s based on your condition, the symptoms you’re experiencing, and your current health and lifestyle. There are many ways in which we can help you manage chronic disease. Some of these include,

Lifestyle changes: Everything from physical activity to what you eat and how well you sleep can impact someone with chronic health problems. You might be surprised to discover just how much your symptoms can improve by cleaning up your current lifestyle. Our medical team can work with you to help you lose weight, determine the best food and nutrition options for you and also determine the best workout routine to make sure you are taking advantage of its health benefits.

Medications: We know that certain health problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure can improve drastically just by implementing a healthier lifestyle; however, many of these conditions will still need medication to keep them in check. Our doctors can also provide you with the right medications to help control everything from asthma attacks to high blood sugar.

Alternative options and therapies: Our doctors are always staying up to date on the latest treatment options and medications available to those with chronic conditions, so we also can provide this information to you. Along with medications and lifestyle adjustments, we may also recommend supplementation, acupuncture, or massage therapy, which has also been proven to improve symptoms of depression, anxiety, diabetes, digestive issues, and high blood pressure.
