A rheumatologist is a medical specialist who diagnoses, treats, and manages musculoskeletal conditions, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions, and systemic autoimmune diseases.

Some of the common conditions treated by rheumatologists include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma, gout, osteoporosis, vasculitis, and fibromyalgia.

The most common rheumatic diseases include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Both cause inflammation, swelling, and pain in joints. Gout is a form of arthritis in which urate crystals accumulate in a joint, usually the large joint of the big toe.

Overexertion, poor sleep, stress or an infection like the flu can all set off RA symptoms. With a predictable flare you'll temporarily feel worse, but your symptoms will resolve in time. Unpredictable flares have more uncertainty associated with them.

Recovery time for spinal fusion surgery varies significantly from patient to patient, but the average spans between three and six months before the patient is back to their daily routine; working, traveling, and even exercising with more freedom and less pain than they could before the surgery.27 Dec 2019
