College of Specialists in
Rheumatology & Rehabilitation – Sri Lanka
Rheumatologists are specialist physicians with expertise in the diagnosis and management of diseases that affect joints, muscles and bones. They treat all forms of arthritis, autoimmune connective tissue diseases, spinal and soft tissue disorders, sports injuries, osteoporosis and chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes.
Unlike other specialties that can be described in one word (i.e. cardiology – study of the heart), rheumatology requires much more explanation.
Each year a large number of people suffer symptoms such as back pain, neck pain, muscle pain or swollen and painful joints.
If one falls ill or sustains an injury, with present day medical treatment, there is a good chance to recover fully.
