Rheumatology

Rheumatology

Rheumatology is a medical specialisation that deals with the diagnosis andconservative treatment of musculoskeletal diseases. Rheumatic diseases affect the human musculoskeletal system (joints, bones, spine, but also muscles, ligaments, tendons) and sometimes may even affect other human organs.

We can split them into several basic groups, of which the most frequent and well-known are rheumatoid arthritis, Bekhterev's disease and psoriasis.

Many people think that rheumatoid arthritis is a disease of joints but in fact, it is not true. It is a disease of the human immune system. It is your immune system that attacks your joints, irreversibly damages them and causes chronic pain.
