Rheumatology represents a sub-division of the field internal medicine and pediatrics, which is devoted to diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases including some clinical problems in joints, connective tissue disorders soft tissues and autoimmune diseases) like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Soft Tissue Rheumatism, fibromyalgia etc. Rheumatology is multidisciplinary in nature and it relies on close relationships with other medical specialities. In recent time speciality of rheumatology has gain advances in terms of the development of biological drugs with novel targets, advancement in the basic science of musculoskeletal diseases and improving imaging techniques. Physicians who specialize in rheumatology are called rheumatologists.

Soft tissue rheumatism is a disease which is used to describe the group of conditions that cause due to the pain, swelling, stiffness or inflammation around the soft tissues around the joints, tendons, ligaments and muscles etc. This disease has a category of disorders include tendinitis, bursitis, tenosynovitis, Enthesitis, myofascial pain syndrome, fibromyalgia and capsulitis. Soft tissue rheumatic disorders refer to non-articular pain; patients often attribute their symptoms to nearby joints. This disease is treated by Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) and non-narcotic drugs and corticosteroids injections for relieving pain. Physical and occupational therapy is promoted for swift body movements.

Lupus is one of disorders of immune system that are chronic in nature. It is an autoimmune disease which can affect any part of the body (skin, joints or any organ inside the body). In Lupus host antibodies does not able to understand the difference between the foreign invader to the body and body’s healthy tissues and starts damaging the own healthy tissues which creates inflammation. The people with lupus have many different symptoms like painful or swollen joints, extreme fatigue, dry mouth, skin rashes, fever, and kidney problems. At present there is no cure for lupus but I can effectively manage with treatment through drugs. 

Autoinflammatory diseases are a comparatively new kind of diseases that are different from autoimmune diseases. Autoinflammatory diseases are produced by genetic mutations in molecules that are involved in regula         ting the innate immune response-a "hard wired" defense system that evolved to quickly recognize and act against infectious agents and other danger signals produced by our bodies. Freshly, the increased knowledge in the field of auto inflammation highlighted shared immune mechanisms in the pathogenesis of both classical monogenetic and multifactorial auto inflammatory diseases and a broad spectrum of chronic age-related inflammatory pathologies. The current growth in the prevalence of chronic inflammatory diseases makes this subject of topical interest.

A substance that has prepared from a living organism or its products and has been using for some time in the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of cancer and other diseases. Biologic agents include antibodies, interleukins, and vaccines and also biological drug. In the last decade, there have been significant advances in treating rheumatoid arthritis, especially for patients whose arthritis does not respond to traditional disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs). The most significant advance has been the progress of a group of drugs called biologic response modifiers or biologic agents.

Pain management is the current area of increasing research and clinical effort in the field of rheumatology, pain management is turning into a region of expanding research and clinical exertion in the discipline of rheumatology. It is a very common symptom of patient with rheumatic disorders or musculoskeletal disease and it can happen in both inflammatory and non-inflammatory conditions. The pain associated with the rheumatic disorders is difficult to determine. Development of pain is the cause of tissue damage due to the inflammatory or non-inflammatory conditions. Effective pain management is an important issue to be overcome in future. Rheumatologist access to the pain from the proximal cause of pain such as inflammation, tissue injury and concentrated a therapy to reduce cause of pain by multimodal approach, integrating pharmacological as well as non-pharmacologic treatments. In the view of new concept pharmaceutical treatment has wider scope in comparison to the traditional methods of using analgesics and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

Arthritis is described as a cluster of more than 100 types of different joint disorders featuring inflammation of one or more joints. There are different cause of happening arthritis include injury (leading osteoarthritis), heredity factors, autoimmune (Rheumatoid Arthritis), by the effect of infections i.e. bacterial or viral, by metabolic abnormalities such a gout and pseudo gouts and Systemic Lupus Erythromatosus. Arthritis causes inflammation, Joint pain, swelling, redness, joint stiffness etc. The common form of arthritis is Osteoarthritis occurs due to the daily wearing and tearing of the joint, trauma to the joint, Infection of the joints and age related factors.  Due to the wearing of cartilage, it becomes rough and the space between the bones decreases and decrement in the lubrication of joints causes friction between the bones and produce painful spurs resulting joint destruction and deformity. I t can affect larger as well as smaller bones of the body like hip, wrist, knee etc. Women are more likely to have osteoarthritis than men. According to Arthritis foundation it is the leading cause of disability in America. Arthritis can be managed effectively; physical exercise and maintaining a healthy weight helps to reduce the pressure on your joints. It is the best way to prevent from arthritis. NSAID’s, DMARD’s and corticosteroids are used in medication treatment of Arthritis, Herbal medication also a good effect on arthritis. Surgery is the end stage treatment of arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is a sub type of Arthritis and a degenerative disorder in nature caused by the trauma, ageing joints and obesity etc. It is common chronic condition of the joints. A cartilage is a rubbery material found at covering of the bone provides a smooth motion of between the joints and act as a cushion between the Bones. In OA cartilage breaks down which results in inflammation, pain, swelling, stiffness etc. In worse condition cartilage wears away and rubbing of bone against which results in the deformity or joint destruction. I t can affect both larger and smaller joints of the body but more often occurs in knees, hips and lower back of the body.

Orthopedics is the therapeutic speciality to fame that spotlights on wounds and diseases of your body's musculoskeletal framework. Orthopedic surgery will be surgery performed by a medical specialist, for example, an orthopedist or orthopedic specialist, prepared to manage issues that create in the bones, joints, and tendons of the human body. It involves surgical and non-surgical treatment of the diseases. Biomechanics is the investigation of the mechanical aspects of living life forms. From concentrating on the qualities and weakness of individual components, for example, bones, to inspecting how gatherings of tissues and embeds cooperate, biomechanical scientists are enhancing the comprehension of the body, as well as the plan of gadgets expected to repair the body. For studying musculoskeletal problems there is some experimentation including biomechanical tests, histological examinations, biochemical measures, and numerical model investigations.

 

In this section we shall also discuss joint replacement surgery, Pediatric orthopaedics, spine surgery, intensive care and other future aspects.

Musculoskeletal Disorders or MSDs are injuries and sicknesses that affect the human body’s movement or musculoskeletal system (i.e. muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, blood vessels, etc.). It can arise from the contact of physical factors with ergonomic, psychological, social, and occupational factors. When a worker is wide-open to MSD risk factors, they begin to fatigue. When fatigue outruns their body’s recovery system, they develop a musculoskeletal imbalance. Over time, as fatigue endures to outrun recovery and the musculoskeletal imbalance persists, a musculoskeletal disorder develops. In some cases, they cause pain and discomfort that interferes with your everyday activities. Early diagnosis and treatment may help ease your symptoms and progress your long-term outlook.

An orthopaedic mattress is a mattress intended to support the joints, back and complete body. As its name advocates, an orthopedic mattress has been influenced by the medical study of Orthopedics which emphases on disorders or defects of the spine and joints. Orthopaedic mattresses have, therefore, been created to combat the problems one might experience with a bad back or joints by providing a firm mattress which suggests targeted, tailored support. Orthopedic shoes are particularly designed shoes that provide support and pain relief for people suffering with some type of pain in the legs, ankles, or feet. The main function of orthopedic shoes is to provide more care for the feet and ankles than is accomplished by simple footwear. 

A Rheumatic ailment influences the joints, muscles and connective tissues. A few, similar to osteoarthritis, are the consequence of wear and tear. Others, for example, rheumatoid joint inflammation, are safe framework issues. Treatment design will probably incorporate prescriptions, general exercise, a sound eating regimen, push administration, and rest. Normal Rheumatic issue are Lyme infection, Systemic lupus Erythematosus, Behcet's Ailment, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, Rheumatic fever. Lupus erythematosus is a name given to an accumulation of immune system sicknesses in which the human resistant framework winds up plainly hyperactive and assaults ordinary, solid tissues. Rheumatic fever is a fiery illness that can include the heart, joints, skin, and cerebrum. Numerous rheumatic ailments are unending conditions. They are probably not going to leave. There may not be a cure for our condition, but rather viable administration is accessible for most.Many individuals with rheumatic ailment lead upbeat, fulfilling lives quite a long time. 

Musculoskeletal ultrasonography has turned into an imperative indicative device in rheumatoid joint pain. In Germany it is a piece of the rheumatology preparing, and numerous ultrasound courses give facilitate instruction. Just over the most recent five years the global significance of ultrasound in rheumatology has expanded drastically. Sonography can be executed as a bedside system and as an expansion of the clinical examination. It is effectively endured by the patients, and it can be rehashed whenever. Schober's test is a test utilized as a part of rheumatology to gauge the capacity of a patient to flex his/her brings down back. The reason for the Schober test is to mirror the lumbar ROM amid flexion. An Arthrogram is a symptomatic test which inspects within a joint to evaluate damage or a side effect you might be encountering. The test is finished by first infusing contrast which traces the delicate tissue structures in the joint (e.g. tendons and ligament) and makes them clearer to see on the pictures or pictures that will be taken of the joint. This is typically done utilizing fluoroscopy.
