Rheumatology is an area of medicine which explores the diseases of the musculoskeletal system. In the view of physician-rheumatologist there are over a hundred different diseases associated with lesions of spine, joints, bones and muscles. In addition, rheumatology studies systemic diseases in which, besides the musculoskeletal system the internal organs are also affected.
Pain in the back, "aching" joints, when the weather is changing, – all these harmless symptoms may be the first manifestation of a serious illness threatening severe consequences if left untreated.
The most frequent manifestation of rheumatic diseases is pain in the joints, which affects about 40% of people in the world. This group of diseases is characterized by deformation of fingers on hands and feet, swelling of joints, limitation of their mobility and others. A patient often can not perform simple movements - get up from his chair, get out of his bed or house alone. Along with significant reduction in the quality of life, mental health of the patient is suffering as well. Do not assume that it is necessary to consult a rheumatologist only in old age - rheumatic diseases often affect even teenagers.
