Can biologic therapy improve your quality of life?

By addressing the underlying factors contributing to these conditions, biologic therapy offers symptom relief and long-lasting improvements in overall well-being.

What is the recovery like?

The recovery process after biologic therapy is designed with your comfort and safety in mind. Here are five essential steps in the recovery process:

  • Immediate Post-Procedure: After the therapy, you may experience some mild discomfort at the injection site. It's essential to rest and avoid strenuous activities for the first 24 hours.
  • Week 1: During the first week, it's normal to have some mild swelling or redness at the injection site. Your healthcare provider will monitor your progress and guide you in managing any side effects.
  • Week 2-4: Most patients can return to their regular activities by the second to fourth week. However, it's advisable to avoid intense exercise during this period.
  • Week 6: Any swelling or discomfort should have subsided at this stage. You can gradually resume all your regular activities.
  • Long-Term: Over the coming months, you'll continue to experience improved health and well-being as the biologic therapy takes full effect.
