How your doctor in Southfield, MI, can help you feel better

Your body is a system, with all the parts working together to keep you healthy and active. When you have suffered an illness or undergone surgery, it canSick affect your entire body too. You may experience a decline in function, your activity level may decline, and you may not feel healthy. An illness or surgery can weaken you and make you more prone to other debilitating effects.

Dr. Antoine E. Geffrard at RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, offers a wide range of services to get you back on your feet and feeling healthy again. At RMS Consultations, your doctor can:

  • Treat acute injury and disease
  • Treat chronic diseases
  • Help with weight loss and health maintenance
  • Share alternative health care options
  • Provide health education and lifestyle counseling

After an illness, you may not feel completely well. Your body has had to fight off the illness, leading to an overworked immune system and reduction in vital nutrients that keep your body functioning normally. The effects of the illness may linger, including fatigue, failure-to-thrive, joint and muscle pain, and other common problems.

After a surgery, your body may have been immobilized for a long period of time, or your activity has decreased. Post-surgical effects can include muscle atrophy, skeletal and joint pain, muscle aches, loss of fitness, and other issues.

It can be difficult to begin functioning at your normal capacity after an illness or surgery. Dr. Geffrard can help you regain function. He will perform a comprehensive examination, and record any medical or functional issues you are having. He will communicate any recommendations to your physician and work with your physician to help you regain your good health.

His recommendations may include:

  • Diet and lifestyle modifications
  • Changes or modifications to your medication regimen
  • Physical therapy and other programs to increase mobility

Illnesses and surgeries can be traumatic to your body and your life, with effects that are long-lasting. Your doctor can help you recover and feel your best.
