What is Rheumatology?
Rheumatology is the medical specialty that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases. These are diseases that affect the joints, bones, muscles, and soft tissues of the body, resulting in pain, swelling, stiffness, and loss of function.
Rheumatologists are specially trained physicians who are experts in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases. They work closely with other healthcare professionals, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, and orthopedic surgeons, to provide comprehensive care for patients with rheumatic conditions.
When To See a Rheumatologist?
If you are experiencing persistent joint pain, swelling, stiffness, or other symptoms related to your joints, bones, muscles, or soft tissues, it may be time to see a rheumatologist. Some common signs and symptoms that may indicate the need to see a rheumatologist include:
Persistent joint pain: If you have been experiencing joint pain for more than a few weeks, it may be a sign of an underlying rheumatic condition that requires medical attention.
Joint swelling: If your joints are swollen or tender to the touch, it may be a sign of inflammation, which is a common feature of many rheumatic conditions.
