Rheumatology is generally thought of as a medical field that treats arthritic conditions, but it actually involves a wide range of joint, soft tissue and muscle conditions. Physicians who specialize in rheumatology manage and treat the muscle loss and weakened joints that can be the result of these conditions.
The rheumatologists at Merit Health Medical Group provide treatment for:
- Inflammatory joint disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis
- Vasculitis and related disorders
- Bone and cartilage disorders such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis
