Rheumatology Header

Rheumatology is the field of medicine evaluating musculoskeletal disorders and systemic autoimmune conditions.  Autoimmune conditions occur when the immune system causes inflammation to parts of the body when it is not warranted, which may lead to pain, weakness, swelling and stiffness.  This conditions can affect not only the muscles and joints but also can affect the eyes, skin, nervous system and internal organs.
