Possibility of treating Rheumatologic disorders has improved drastically over last 2 decades and many diseases previously thought untreatable can now be managed very effectively. This is vastly due to early diagnosis and timely introduction of Anti-Rheumatic Drugs (DMARDs). More recently, the availability of targeted treatments called Biologics has played a significant role. Steroids were vastly used for treatment of autoimmune rheumatic diseases in past which are now used merely as bridging therapy while more specific DMARDs are being proven effective. This approach avoids long term side effects caused by steroids.

Therefore, they are best managed under supervision of expert Rheumatologists.

Common Problems dealt by Rheumatologists
Rheumatoid Arthritis is one of the most common joint problems dealt by Rheumatologists which affects small joints of hands and feet which results in pain, swelling and stiffness of the joints. Around 1% of population gets affected by this. If not treated properly, it can lead to joint deformities and long term disability. Early diagnosis is essential as standard treatment much earlier leads to better results and remission of disease. Therefore, it is very important to consult a Rheumatologist if you have got any problem related to joints such as joint pain, swelling or stiffness which does not seem to improve. The earlier you get yourself checked by a specialist, the better it is.
Pediatric rheumatology is also clearly an increasingly recognized subspecialty. It is exciting to have so many more options to treat pediatric rheumatic diseases now as compared to 25 years ago. We no longer have to accept that a child with a pediatric rheumatic condition will become disabled. However, we need to educate the public and medical professionals about pediatric rheumatic diseases to make sure that the children with such conditions receive early and directed therapy so as to minimize morbidity.
