Rheumatology focuses on diagnosing and treating conditions affecting the joints, muscles and bones. These conditions include many autoimmune diseases that affect the body’s immune system by causing inflammation and breaking down connective tissue and related structures of the body. Rheumatic diseases may cause pain, stiffness and swelling in the joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones.
