Rheumatism

Rheumatism or rheumatic disorders are conditions causing chronic, often intermittent pain affecting the joints or connective tissue. Rheumatism does not designate any specific disorder, but covers at least 200 different conditions including arthritis and "non-articular rheumatism", also known as "regional pain syndrome" or "soft tissue rheumatism". There is a close overlap between the term soft tissue disorder and rheumatism. Sometimes the term "soft tissue rheumatic disorders" is used to describe these conditions.

Major rheumatic disorders currently recognized include:

  • Back pain
  • Bursitis/Tendinitis of the shoulder, wrist, biceps, leg, knee cap (patella), ankle, hip, and Achilles tendon
  • Capsulitis
  • Neck pain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Palindromic rheumatism has been theorized to be a form of rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatic diseases caused by autoimmunity include:

  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • relapsing polychondritis
  • systemic lupus erythematosus
  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • gout, inflammatory arthritis, pseudogout
  • juvenile arthritis
  • Sjögren syndrome
  • scleroderma
  • Polymyositis
  • Dermatomyositis
  • Behçet's disease
  • Psoriatic arthritis
A vast number of traditional herbal remedies have been recommended for "rheumatism". Modern medicine, both conventional and alternative, recognises that the different rheumatic disorders have different causes (and several of them have multiple causes) and require different kinds of treatment.
