Important Rheumatology Terms

Receiving a diagnosis of a disease which affects the joints can be devastating. Rheumatoid ailments affect not only adults, but juveniles as well. In order to have a better, more comprehensive understanding of joint diseases whether pediatric or adult, we must first understand the terminology associated with these ailments. Below are several popular terms to know when talking to your doctor about one's diagnosis.

  • Endocrinology - The branch of adult or pediatric medicine which focuses on the endocrine systems and its secretions.
  • Lupus - One of several diseases which typically affect the skin, causing lesions. Systemic Lupus can also affect the joints as well as other systems of the body.

    The field of rheumatology is an extensive one that encompasses a number of conditions and disorders. You might make an appointment if you have a common disease like gout, bursitis or arthritis. Rheumatologists also work with some lesser known conditions, like sponsylitis, ankylosing and henoch. This specialist deals with autoimmune disorders like fibromyalgia, sclerosis and lupus. This article provides an overview of rheumatology, including brief descriptions of some of the most common types of disorders rheumatologists typically treat. Rheumatology is a specialty field that requires four years of medical school, three years of training in internal medicine or pediatrics, and another two to three years specilaizing in rheumatology or endocrinology. Rheumatology doctors often work with other physicians or health care providers in coordinating a treatment for a specific condition. Because chronic pain can be a common symptom of a rheumatology condition, like osteoarthritis and polyarthritis when joints become inflamed, these doctors often administer cortisone injections and prescribe other types of pain relieving treatment. Many of the disorders that fall under the umbrella of rheumatology, including arthritis, lupus and osteoporosis, are chronic in nature. Chronic disorders mean that there is no cure. Treatmebnt is primarily focused on dealing with symptoms as they develop. Other rheumatology diseases, like gout and bursitis, can be thoroughly treated. Many patients enter a rheumatology office when they develop severe, ongoing pain from inflamed joints or muscles. The diseases are often complex to diagnose and may take some time to identify. Once the disorder is correctly named, the rheumatology doctor can work with the patient to come up with an effective treatment plan.
