Chronic Disease Management Q & A

What is chronic disease management?

Chronic disease management is an ongoing service from Balance Wellness Center to help you manage a long-term illness. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention defines chronic diseases as conditions that typically last for a year or longer. These illnesses can cause ongoing pain as well as other symptoms like fatigue and can even lead to severe complications if you don’t manage them correctly. 

The team at Balance Wellness Center takes a holistic approach to treating your chronic disease with treatments and services that alleviate symptoms and help you become more functional in your day-to-day life. 

What does chronic disease management entail?

Chronic disease management looks a little different for everyone participating in it. The team at Balance Wellness Center regularly evaluates your health with lab work and other tests so they can use the results to guide your treatment and track trends in your health. 

Your chronic disease management at Balance Wellness Center might involve:

Medication management

Medications often play a key role in helping you manage a chronic illness. The team at Balance Wellness Center ensures you benefit from the medication you take at the dose you take it. 

Weight management

Weight management may benefit you if you have a chronic disease associated with lifestyle factors like sedentary behaviors or overeating. 

Exercise and other lifestyle changes

Exercise is often much more beneficial than people give it credit for when it comes to managing a chronic disease. The team might have additional recommendations like smoking cessation or dietary changes. 


Various medical procedures might help with specific chronic diseases, such as injections, physical therapies, or surgery.
