Rheumatic diseases can impact anyone and occur at anytime. These conditions range from bothersome to debilitating and impact millions of Americans. Osteoporosis is one of many diseases and conditions treated by rheumatologists. While osteoporosis is a condition which affects bones not muscles or connective tissue, it is often related to other diseases and conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and low vitamin D levels. Unlike many of the other conditions treated by rheumatologists, osteoporosis is considered a silent disease as there are often no symptoms until there is a bone fracture.
Osteoporosis occurs when bone loss exceeds bone rebuilding and can strike anyone at any age. While quite little is known about osteoporosis, researchers continue to search for helpful information to enhance bone health for the more than 40 million people who already suffer from this condition.
The amount of time and money which goes into arthritis research in the U.S. is over 250 million dollars annually and continues to rise. As new treatments continue to be identified and cures researched, organizations such as the Arthritis Institute of Michigan continue to offer those suffering from these conditions pain relief and hope for the future.
