Welcome to the Rheumatology Blogs.
Rheumatology is an internal medicine specialty that focuses on autoimmune and inflammatory disorders that affect soft tissues and joints within the musculoskeletal system. The diseases treated are categorized as rheumatoid diseases, often caused by autoimmune disorders. When the immune system reacts by creating inflammation in areas not injured, it can cause damage to bone, cartilage, connective tissue and muscles. Rheumatoid diseases include arthritis, gout, lupus and tendonitis.
Rheumatologists treated chronic diseases that are often painful and limit mobility. Chronic back and joint pain are common symptoms of rheumatoid diseases. Rheumatologists treat and manage symptoms of stiffness, pain, swelling and deformity in chronic diseases. Although many rheumatoid diseases are not curable, rheumatologists can help manage symptoms to offer relief and improve mobility.
