Rheumatologists – What Exactly Do They Treat?
Rheumatologists essentially diagnose and treat disorders of the joints, bones and muscles. To date, there are over 100 disorders that have been discovered which affect these organs and tissues. Because of this, rheumatologists must be highly skilled to make an accurate diagnosis at the first trial as the patient’s life depends on it. More often than not, diseases of the musculoskeletal system are painful and limit a patient’s mobility as well as lower their quality of life. Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis can cause a patient to become bedridden, and it’s only due to timely diagnosis by the rheumatologist that the patient may be able to walk again and rejoin the world, becoming a productive member of society.
Here are some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat
