The rheumatology clinic at University of Utah Health's South Jordan Health Center treats patients with all types of rheumatic diseases.

Rheumatic diseases can cause pain, swelling, and stiffness in your joints, tendons, bones, ligaments, and muscles. Over time, these conditions can get in the way of your day-to-day activities and lower your quality of life.

Rheumatic Pain Treatment

Arthritis is the most well-known example of rheumatic disease, but there are many other types of rheumatic diseases that can cause pain and discomfort in your legs, spine, and skin.

Most rheumatic diseases are painful. Some types (like osteoarthritis) are caused by normal wear and tear to your body from being physically active. Others, like rheumatoid arthritis, are caused by problems with your body's immune system.

Many people think that only the elderly get rheumatic diseases, but pain from these diseases can actually affect people of any age.

Our specialists evaluate your symptoms and lifestyle to help you manage your pain.
