Rheumatology physicians at Group Health specialize in the non-surgical treatment of rheumatic illnesses, especially arthritis. There are more than 100 forms of arthritis, as well as other disorders of the connective tissues, that can cause inflammation, swelling and pain in the joints or muscles.

Some rheumatic diseases, such as osteoarthritis, are caused by wear and tear to the joints. Others, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and Sjogren's syndrome, are autoimmune disorders, in which the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. This can cause joint pain, swelling and stiffness.

  • Arthritis and joint pain
