A rheumatologist is a physician who is qualified, by additional training and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of arthritis and other diseases of the joints, muscles and bones. After four years of medical school and three years of training in internal medicine, rheumatologists devote an additional two to three years in specialized rheumatology training. Most rheumatologists who plan to treat patients choose to become board certified. Upon completion of their training, they must pass a rigorous exam conducted by the American Board of Internal Medicine to become certified.
They are trained to treat the following conditions:
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Back pain
- Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
- Psoriatic Arthritis
- Reactive Arthritis
- Rotator Cuff Problems
- Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease
