There are many possible causes for the conditions that rheumatologists treat. Rheumatoid conditions can stem from simple wear-and-tear to the result of overuse, injury or perhaps just age. One of the most common conditions rheumatologists treat is arthritis—an estimated 40 million Americans have it.

Other rheumatic diseases are caused by autoimmune or infectious illnesses and some have genetic roots. It's important to identify the reason for musculoskeletal pain early on because the faster a condition is identified and treated, the more likely you are to get relief.
