Rheumatic disorders

Rheumatic disorders are common; at least 2 million Dutch people suffer from some kind of rheumatism. Rheumatism includes over 100 chronic disorders of the joints, muscles, and tendons, ranging in severity from light to severe, even disabling.

Three types

Rheumatism symptoms are often caused by repeated motions, prolonged static posture or a combination of the two. Personal and occupational factors may play an important role in the formation, progression or preservation of RSI.
By analysing the cause and changing the situation, we can guide you in relieving your pain. To do this, we use a muscle tension meter and other types of equipment.

  • Rheumatism caused by inflammation. This includes disorders where inflammatory reactions in the body damage joints. The most well-known form is rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Arthrosis. The cartilage in the joints wears down.
  • Rheumatism of the soft tissue. Included are disorders of the muscles, ligaments, tendons and the capsules around the joints. Fibromyalgia is the most famous example of this, but it also includes hypermobility.
