Soft Tissue Rheumatism

Soft Tissue Rheumatism

Soft tissue Problems describe a multitude of problems related to tendons, ligaments, and muscles. They are common, and can be challenging to diagnose and treat.

  • Regional rheumatic disorders
  • Tendonitis
  • Bursitis

Diagnosis in most instances includes a full physical examination and possibly specific tests including scans to assess the condition.

Treatment of each soft tissue problem may differ depending on the region involved and specific problem. General principals will however include rest, anti-inflammatories and may even require injections of corticosteroids
