Rheumatology (Arthritis And Joint Disease)

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a type of arthritis that affects the spine.

Arthritis

Arthritis and other rheumatic diseases are characterized by pain, swelling and limited movement in joints and connective tissues of the body.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which the median nerve is compressed as it passes through an opening from the wrist to the hand called the carpal tunnel.

Cellulitis

Cellulitis is a bacterial infection of the skin.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a debilitating condition characterised by profound tiredness, regardless of bed rest.

Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is long-standing pain that persists beyond the usual recovery period or occurs along with a chronic health condition such as arthritis.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia, also called fibrositis, is a chronic, widespread pain in muscles and soft tissues surrounding the joints throughout the body accompanied by tiredness.

Gout

Gout is characterized by inflamed, painful joints due to the formation of crystal deposits at the joints.

Hip Problems

The following are some of the most common hip problems: arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic arthritis, avascular necrosis, bursitis and hip pointer.

Infectious Arthritis

Infectious arthritis is an infection in the joint (synovial) fluid and joint tissues.

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis is a form of arthritis in children aged 16 or younger that causes inflammation and stiffness of joints for more than six weeks.

Low Back Pain

Low back pain can range from mild, dull, annoying pain, to persistent, severe, disabling pain in the lower back. Pain in the lower back can restrict mobility and interfere with normal functioning.

Lumbar Disc Disease (Herniated Disc)

Lumbar disc disease occurs in the lumbar area of the spine. As discs degenerate, fragments of the disc material can press on the nerve roots located just behind the disc space, causing pain, numbness or changes in sensation.

Lyme Disease

While most tick bites are harmless, several species can cause life-threatening diseases. Two of these well-known diseases are Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and Lyme disease; early symptoms may include fever, headache, and fatigue.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a chronic, degenerative, joint disease characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage and adjacent bone in the neck, lower back, knees, hips and/or fingers.

Paget's Disease of the Bone

Paget's disease of the bone is a chronic bone disorder in which bones become enlarged and deformed. Bone may become dense, but fragile, because of excessive breakdown and deformation of bone.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis associated with psoriasis. The disease is similar to rheumatoid arthritis in symptoms, characterised by joint inflammation.

Raynauds Phenomenon

Raynaud's phenomenon or, simply, Raynaud's, is a disorder characterised by decreased blood flow, usually to the fingers, and often (although very less) to the ears, toes, nipples, knees or nose.

Reactive Arthritis (Reiter's Syndrome)

Reactive arthritis, also known as Reiter's syndrome is a type of arthritis that occurs as a reaction to an infection somewhere in the body.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis, a chronic, autoimmune disease, is the most crippling form of arthritis and affects approximately 1% of the Indian population.

Scleroderma

Scleroderma, also called systemic sclerosis, is a chronic, degenerative disease that affects the joints, skin, and internal organs.

Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (Lupus)

Systemic lupus erythematosus or Lupus, involves periodic episodes of inflammation of and damage to the joints, tendons, other connective tissues and organs, including the heart, lungs, blood vessels, brain, kidneys and skin.

Tendonitis

Two major problems associated with tendons include tendonitis and tenosynovitis.
