Rheumatology is a medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and management of conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system and certain autoimmune diseases. Rheumatologists are physicians who specialize in this field and are trained to address a wide range of disorders that involve joints, bones, muscles, and connective tissues.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: An autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the joints, causing inflammation, pain, and potential joint damage.
Osteoarthritis: A degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage and the subsequent development of pain and stiffness in the joints.
Lupus: Systemic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease that can affect various parts of the body, including the joints, skin, kidneys, heart, lungs, and more.
Ankylosing Spondylitis: A type of inflammatory arthritis that primarily affects the spine, causing pain, stiffness, and fusion of the vertebrae.
Psoriatic Arthritis: A form of arthritis that affects some people with psoriasis, causing joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation.
Gout: A type of arthritis caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in joints, leading to sudden and severe pain.
Sjögren’s Syndrome: An autoimmune disorder that primarily affects the moisture-producing glands, leading to dryness in the eyes and mouth, and sometimes joint pain.
Scleroderma: An autoimmune condition characterized by the hardening and tightening of the skin and connective tissues, and it can also affect internal organs.
Polymyalgia Rheumatica: An inflammatory disorder that mainly affects older adults, causing stiffness and pain in the shoulders and hips.
Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis: A type of arthritis that occurs in children, causing joint inflammation and potential growth problems.
Rheumatologists use a combination of clinical assessment, medical history, physical examinations, laboratory tests, and imaging studies to diagnose and manage these conditions. Treatment approaches often involve a combination of medications (such as anti-inflammatory drugs, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs, and biologics), physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and patient education.
