Rheumatology is a subspecialty of internal medicine, devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatologic conditions. It encompasses treatment of medical disorders affecting the musculoskeletal system, particularly the joints and surrounding soft tissue.
The musculoskeletal system consists of bones, cartilage, muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Its functions include support of the body, provision of motion, and protection of vital organs. Because many body systems, including the nervous, vascular, skin, and immune systems are inter-related, disorders of any of these systems may affect the musculoskeletal system.
