Get Treatment For Rheumatism In Singapore
Commonly used as a general nonspecific term referring to conditions afflicting the joints and connective tissues, rheumatism also describes the arthritic conditions of the joints due to wear and tear as well as autoimmune joint dysfunction.
Symptoms of Rheumatism-related disorders
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Capsulitis – inflammation of a joint capsule, such as in the shoulder
- Ankylosing Spondylitis – an immune disorder, affecting peripheral joints
- Osteoarthritis – generic term for arthritis of the joints, characterised by pain and cartilage degeneration in a joint
Rheumatism and its related disorders are caused by autoimmune disorders such as lupus. Generally, autoimmune disorders aren’t well understood. These disorders, like rheumatoid arthritis, can be treated with therapy and medication but often cannot be cured.
Rheumatoid Arthritis is a systemic autoimmune disorder that primarily attacks the joints. Clinical diagnosis of this disorder is generally made based on physical examination, reported symptoms, X-rays, and blood investigations. You can approach our doctors at the Pain Relief Clinic if you require treatment for rheumatoid arthritis in Singapore.
The exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis is unknown, but it has been linked with vitamin D deficiency, viral infections and genetic factors.
Treatment Options for Rheumatoid Arthritis in Singapore
Standard medicinal treatment of rheumatism is often not recommended by our doctors in Singapore. Often only yielding temporary results, the long-term use of medication for rheumatism treatment is associated with multiple side effects.
In recent years, acupuncture and herbal remedies have increased in popularity as rheumatism treatment options. Other alternatives include dietary omega-3 fatty acids, boswellic acid and Devil’s Claw – all of which have shown promise in treating pain, ache and stiffness associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
