Rheumatology mainly addresses the diagnosis and treatment of pain associated with the locomotor system. Specifically, inflammation of bones, joints and muscles (e.g. rheumatism, arthritis or osteoporosis) fall into this category, but also internal organs and the nervous system.
There are various medications available for rheumatologists to use for the treatment of illnesses. Furthermore, they are well-informed with regard to the various therapeutic methods that are utilised in physical medicine.
