What is Rheumatology?

Rheumatism is a general term used to describe any pain and aches in bones, muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and the tissues around them. Therefore, in addition to the diseases defined in rheumatism, there may be other conditions with widespread pain, such as neck pain, tennis elbow, low back pain, and fibromyalgia.

Most patients with inflammatory rheumatism may experience these painful symptoms. These pains and aches may not always be explained by an underlying pathology. Rheumatological diseases refer to all types of rheumatism. There are nearly 150 rheumatic diseases. Most of these are explained by the inappropriate functioning of the immune system and/or inflammatory mechanisms and the mechanisms by which the body creates diseases for itself. Rheumatology deals with rheumatic inflammatory diseases and other musculoskeletal diseases, which usually develop as a result of improper functioning of the immune system.
