Rheumatology is the study of the various disorders affecting the muscles, bones, joints, and the immune system. Some of the disorders being studied in rheumatology include psoriatic arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and rheumatoid arthritis. These conditions are often characterized by pain, redness, and swelling in various joint areas and muscle groups such as the fingers and knees, among others.
