Frequently Asked Questions

Common questions that people have about rheumatology and integrative rheumatology.

What diseases does a rheumatologist treat?

Although arthritis and rheumatology are closely related, this is not the only condition that rheumatologists can treat. A rheumatologist is a dedicated specialist expert in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, which encompass the intricate system that allows humans to move and maintain an upright position. Thanks to this system, we can run, lift weights, walk, jump, travel, and much more. This apparatus consists of the osteoarticular system (composed of bones, joints, and ligaments) and the muscular system (muscles and tendons).
At HC Integra we pay special attention to inflammatory pathologies of autoimmune etiology, such as spondyloarthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus, among others. We also assess joint diseases such as gout. Among the mechanical pathology, we would focus on osteoarthritis in the initial stages.

How do I know if I need to see a rheumatologist?

If you notice pain in your joints or tendons (both at rest and in motion), if you suffer from lower back pain, if you notice a feeling of stiffness or numbness in your joints, or if you suspect you have an autoimmune disease, you should see a rheumatologist as soon as possible and get some tests done.

What are the symptoms of rheumatic diseases?

They can vary depending on the specific condition, but some common symptoms include stiffness, swelling and redness, limited range of motion, fatigue, muscle pain and so on. It's important to note that the symptoms of rheumatic diseases can be similar to those of other conditions, that's why it's vital for you to see a rheumatologist if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.

Is there a difference between arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis?

Yes, there is a difference. Osteoarthritis is a natural process, which refers to the wear and tear of articular cartilage throughout life due to use and age. Sometimes this wear can appear early, and it could benefit from certain treatments and lifestyle changes.
Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, is an autoimmune disease characterized by persistent joint inflammation, predominantly in the hands and feet. In addition, it can affect other organs of the body such as the lungs, nerves, and skin.
Although they share some similarities, it is important to accurately diagnose the specific condition a person has in order to provide appropriate treatment. If you experience pain, discomfort, or inflammation in your body, you should consult a rheumatologist as soon as possible.

What is a rheumatology exam?

The rheumatology exam is a comprehensive evaluation designed to help diagnose and manage rheumatic diseases, such as arthritis, lupus and fibromyalgia. It is an important step in developing a treatment plan that is tailored to the individual patient's needs. Our rheumatologist will first run a thorough medical history review and then a physical examination focused on your musculoskeletal system.

What tests does a rheumatologist order?

Blood tests and urine tests, as well as X rays, anti-CCP, CT scan or MRI. The tests a rheumatologist may order depend on the symptoms and discomforts the patient presents: for this reason, a thorough and accurate medical history is key to detecting the main cause of rheumatic diseases.

What is the difference between a rheumatologist and a traumatologist?

To put it in simple terms, a rheumatologist is a physician of the musculoskeletal system and a traumatologist is their surgeon. The latter is responsible for treating traumatic injuries such as fractures or sprains, and also for operating on severely damaged joints - even, if necessary, by placing suitable prostheses. The rheumatologist, on the other hand, is the professional trained in the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatism. Normally, one goes to the rheumatologist first and, in case the medical treatment is insufficient, they will be referred to the traumatologist for possible intervention.

What treatments are available for connective tissue disorders?

Depending on the severity of the symptoms and the main cause of the disease, rheumatologists could treat these conditions with medication, physiotherapy or surgery. Rheumatologists will make the most appropriate decision for each patient after a thorough rheumatological examination and diagnosis.

Are there alternative treatments for each rheumatic disease?

Yes, there are alternative therapies for treating rheumatic diseases, but their effectiveness can vary from person to person and from disease to disease. Conventional treatments can be combined with other therapies such as physiotherapy, osteopathy, changes in hygienic-dietary habits, nutritional supplements and physical exercise, among others.

What is integrative rheumatology?

Integrative rheumatology combines conventional medicine treatments with other scientifically validated therapies that go beyond symptoms. The integrative approach considers the human being as a whole and, for this reason, allows rheumatologists to broaden their perspective in searching for causes that are not evident at first glance but are related to rheumatic diseases.

How can I relieve the pain associated with rheumatoid arthritis?

The best thing you can do to prevent joint damage from worsening is maintaining a good posture and spending time stretching and moving your joints daily. Should it not be enough, you could also take pain relievers or anti-inflammatory medications for arthritis. Either way, you should see a rheumatologist who can help determine the cause of your symptoms and develop a treatment plan that's right for you.
