Rheumatology

In a very precise manner, Rheumatologists are those who basically manages the health of your child, including physical behavior, and mental health issues who received further training in diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disease and systematic autoimmune conditions (A condition when the immune system sends inflammation to areas of the body when it is not needed which results in damage.) Rheumatologists treat diseases that can affect the joints, muscles, and bones causing pain, swelling, stiffness, deformity, eyes, skin, nervous system, and internal organs. All these are very common areas to be affected.

If we ask about the training of rheumatologists so, Rheumatologists must complete four years of osteopathic education followed by three years of residency training in either internal medicine or pediatrics. Moreover, if an individual wants to become a certified rheumatologist then he/she must take a board examination. Rheumatologists are found in mainly outpatient clinics. Moving ahead, if we discuss the treatment of rheumatic conditions then if may vary according to the situation of the patient. Some of the medications which may be prescribed for the treatment are as given below: -

  1. Topical analgesics
  2. Corticosteroids
  3. DMARDs (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs).
