Rheumatology

Rheumatology is a medical specialization that treats rheumatic and autoimmune diseases throughout the musculoskeletal system. This branch of medicine generally treats arthritis, osteoporosis and lupus, just to name a few. A rheumatologist spearheads the diagnosis and treatment of these joint, muscle and bone diseases.

When You Should See a Rheumatologist?

All pain is serious pain, at least for the body’s sake. Minor pain can subside with rest and limitation of activity, but not all conditions disappear completely. Consulting a rheumatologist for an accurate diagnosis is crucial when pain worsens or recurs in a pattern-like manner. Rheumatology treatment can treat common symptoms such as: fatigue, joint abnormalities, or loss of range of motion and joint function, amongst many others. Many of these symptoms may be hard to initially diagnose without the proper assistance.

IBJI’s rheumatology experts are trained to utilize cutting-edge technology to accurately diagnose your source of rheumatic or autoimmune pain. Our doctors will apply the necessary pain management techniques after examinations via various means of diagnostic imaging. These precautions are taken so the correct treatment will be applied to your condition to ensure a full recovery.

The best approach towards recovery is early treatment. The Illinois Bone and Joint Institute understands that all pain has the potential to materialize into something more serious.
