Soft Tissue Rheumatism

Soft tissue rheumatism is one of the most common and most misunderstood categories of disorders facing the primary care physician. Mixed connective tissue disease has signs and symptoms of a combination of disorders- primarily lupus, scleroderma and polymyositis. For this reason, mixed connective tissue disease is sometimes referred to as an overlap disease. Tennis elbow or lateral epicondylitis is a condition in which the outer part of the elbow becomes sore and tender. Tennis elbow is an acute or chronic inflammation of the tendons that join the forearm muscles on the outside of the elbow (lateral epicondyle). The forearm muscles and tendons become damaged from overuse. Myositis is the inflammation and degeneration of muscle tissue. 50% of tennis players are affected by tennis elbow during their careers. Finding proper treatments and cares measures is a high need. 

Serum sickness, Beurger’s Disease, Scurvy, Myofascial Pain are some other disease which will be discussed with their treatments under this track.

Soft-tissue rheumatic disorders are painful conditions arising from periarticular musculoskeletal structures. This discussion focuses on regional soft tissue disorders that are commonly encountered in the primary care setting. When evaluating musculoskeletal complaints, an intra-articular process (arthritis) should first be excluded. Among the more common types of Soft-tissue rheumatic disorders  are subacromial bursitis, epicondylitis, trochanteric bursitis, anserine bursitis, and fibromyalgia.
