Are you looking for a rheumatologist?
Rheumatologists are a group of physicians that received specialized training to address muscle, bone, joint, ligament, and tendon diseases. A rheumatologist is able to diagnose and treat these diseases, that often cause patients pain, stiffness and swelling, and even deformities of the joints. Additionally, rheumatologists can focus on systemic autoimmune diseases, where a patient’s immune system attacks the body and leads to inflammation, pain and swelling, arthritis, and potential organ damage. Systemic autoimmune diseases can impact any part of the patient’s body and should be treated with care to improve the patient’s symptoms and overall quality of life.
