Each year 20% of the general population consult a GP with a musculoskeletal problem such as inflammatory disease
Most musculoskeletal disorders are chronic conditions; their management presents a number of challenges to GPs. They manage patients with a musculoskeletal problem by diagnosing, investigating and treating them. GPs need to be aware of and deal with special situations such as non-accidental injury in both children and elderly people.
Rheumatologists deal mainly with clinical problems involving joints, soft tissues, autoimmune diseases, vasculitis, and heritable connective tissue disorders.They treat soft tissue problems related to musculoskeletal system sports related soft tissue disorders and the specialty is also interrelated with physiotherapy, physical medicine and rehabilitation of disabled patients.Rheumatologists will manage a wide range of these musculoskeletal conditions.Some of these are very serious disorders of the immune system, that can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Rheumatology is therefore increasingly related to the study of immunology.Frequently they treat Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis, OA is a group of mechanical abnormalities involving degradation of joints, including bone and cartilage.
The rheumatologist educates and interacts with the patient and family, gives health information and partners with other health care providers.He decides the need for more assessment and care, such as referrals to other health care providers, orthopedic aids (splint, brace, cane, etc.), corrective surgery or whether a hospital stay is necessary.A rheumatologist aims to help patients with rheumatic disease to have the best possible quality of life. Toward this aim, rheumatologists advocate for the patient in all aspects of health care and in the community.
As a group, rheumatologists also support legislation that promote patient rights and patient-centered care.
The diagnosis, treatment and care of traumas of the human musculoskeletal system is the specialisation of the Orthopaedic Surgeon .
Primarily, such specialists deal with complaints that have affected muscles, bones, joints and nerves.Such conditions include osteoarthritis, tumours and fractures.This is one of the newest specialisations in surgery, and is one that is key to the treatment of patients who have suffered unfortunate traumas. Orthopaedic surgeons may work in hospitals or trauma clinics, but the treatment is the same.
An orthopaedic surgeon will frequently go on to specialise in one specific area in order to sharpen their skills. This type of surgery has become more prevalent as better surgical techniques have developed, which leads to better treatment and recovery. Surgeons of this speciality often work with a variety of professionals, such as sport specialists and family doctors.
