Rare Musculoskeletal Diseases

Rare musculoskeletal diseases have diverse symptoms. Some cause muscle weakness or pain, sometimes affecting only specific muscle groups, while others cause skeletal deformation or weakness. In many conditions, other body systems are also affected. Often, symptoms can begin gradually but then worsen as muscles or bones become permanently damaged. The most widely recognized rare conditions that involve the musculoskeletal system are Duchene muscular dystrophy; arise from genetic problems in the muscles themselves, while others involve the nerves, motor neurons, or the bones. A correct diagnosis may come from a neurologist, rheumatologist, orthopaedist, or endocrinologist, numerous physicians and allied health professionals can be of great service in managing a musculoskeletal disease.
