What is Rheumatology? 

Rheumatology is a subspecialty of internal medicine and paediatrics. It covers the many autoimmune diseases and heritable connective tissue disorders of the joints and soft tissues. Involving the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disease and autoimmune problems, there’s no surgery involved.

The discipline also involves researching the underlying causes of these diseases and using the results of their analyses to improve treatments. You’ll find a rheumatology department in most outpatient clinics and other rheumatology specialists on the wards, potentially seeing people with any of more than a hundred different conditions.  

What procedures can you find at a Rheumatology clinic? 

  • Physical examinations 
  • X-rays, musculoskeletal ultrasound, CT scans and MRI scans  
  • Laboratory tests 
  • Treatment with medicines and drugs
  •  Biopsies, including synovial and muscle biopsies 
  • Injections into the soft tissues and joints, for example steroid injections for tennis elbow
  • Spinal injections 

What should you expect at a Rheumatology clinic?

Rheumatic diseases are often complex, so are challenging to diagnose. Your rheumatologists will take your medical history, and examine your entire body for the signs and symptoms of inflammation. They’ll also ask about your family history, review the results of the tests you’ve had, and ask about your medications. If you need more tests they’ll combine the results with everything else to pin down the source of your symptoms and create a tailored treatment plan. You might be given medicines, referred for physical therapy or to another specialist. Your rheumatologist can also provide expert advice about coping mechanisms, ideas to stop things getting worse, ways to get full function back, and techniques to improve your well-being as a whole.
