Rheumatology

Rheumatology refers to the treatment of a group of conditions which can affect the immune system and are sometimes referred to as autoimmune conditions. Such conditions are often associated with joint pain, swelling and stiffness.

Our understanding of Rheumatological presentations has increased exponentially over recent decades and as such, we are a lot better at managing associated problems. Rheumatological conditions are now being diagnosed earlier; medications are much more advanced at minimising complications and the importance of regular exercise, physical activity and Physiotherapy cannot be overlooked.
