What is a rheumatologist?

A rheumatologist is a specialist who helps diagnose and treat disorders of the immune system that may affect any organ of the body. They also treat various musculoskeletal injuries and conditions such as inflamed joints, tendons, vessels, and muscles. A rheumatologist will typically treat the following rheumatic conditions:

  • Crystal arthritis – gout/pseudogout

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Back, neck and shoulder pain and tendonitis

  • Inflammatory arthritis – rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis

  • Connective tissue disease – systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), scleroderma, myositis (inflamed muscles), vasculitis (blood vessel inflammation)

  • Fibromyalgia

  • Osteoporosis - especially where linked to one of the above conditions

Where can I find out more?

For further information regarding these conditions and medications, the Australian Rheumatology Association website has well-evidenced information sheets regarding conditions and management. You can visit this site here. The American College of Rheumatology is also a good source of information.
