Rheumatology is the medical specialty focused on the diagnosis and treatment of rheumatic diseases.  These are conditions that often cause chronic and often intermittent pain affecting the joints or connective tissue. There may be over 200 different conditions within this specialty.  Many of these conditions are disorders of the immune system.  Rheumatology is considered to be the study and practice of medical immunology.
