Rheumatic diseases


Rheumatic diseases are associated with pain and functional restriction on the movement system (bones, muscles, joints, tendons).

We seperate between several types of rheumatic diseases

Inflammatory / autoimmune rheumatic diseases

in this case the immune system attacks the body’s own cells. These processes can by triggered by various pathogens (lyme disease and others) or without cause.
Examples: Rheumatoid arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Psoriasis, Lupus, Sjörgen and other autoimmune diseases

Degenerative rheumatic diseases

Osteoarthritis; these are diseases which occur frequently when we are older. For example cartilage is damaged by overloading or incorrect posture and so degradation occurs and more pain

Metabolic disorders
such as Diabetes, Hyperthyroidism, Hyperparathyroidism, Gout, Hemochromatosis or Osteoporosis

Rheumatism of the soft tissue

chronic pain disorder in which the causes have not been fully clarified
such as fibromyalgia, tendon inflammation or bursitis
