Acta Rheumatologica

About Acta Rheumatologica

Acta Rheumatologica is Open access peer reviewed journal that publishes clinical, medical studies related to Rhemuatology.

The objectives and scope of the journal are: (1) clinical studies related to practical aspects of care and management of patients with rheumatic disease, (2) related musculoskeletal pathology of common presentation in clinical practice in the emergency departmentand primary care studies (3) presentation of clinical cases of rare pathology or unusual presentations of common pathology, (4) imagerheumatology with special attention to the application of the musculoskeletal pathology and (5) current status and innovation in specialized training in rheumatology.

Acta Rheumatologica is using Editorial Manager System for maintaining the quality in peer review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review processing is performed by the editorial board members of Acta Rheumatologica or by outside experts. At least two independent reviewers approval followed by editor approval is required for acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

Chronic Knee Pain

Pain that persists over a long period of time. It is resistant to medical treatments. With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. This can take both a physical and emotional toll on a person.

Calf Muscle Pain

Calf muscle pain is due to injury, underlying medical condition or a problem in the nerves or arteries in the lower leg. It is made up of the gastrocnemius muscle. Calf muscle pain is caused by muscle strain, but can be caused by blood clots in veins of the legs.

Knee Brace

Knee braces are used after knee surgery and during knee rehabilitation and can help to provide stability and support following knee injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture, torn knee cartilage, sprained medial knee ligament, posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) rupture, patella tendonitis, knee arthritis and runners knee.

Joint Pain

Joint pain is discomfort that occurs from any joint. Joint is the place where two or more bones meet. It may be also called as arthritis or arthralgia. Joint pain can be mild, causing some soreness each time you move your joint.

Bone

Bone is a rigid organ that constitutes part of the vertebral skeleton. They support and protect the various organs of the body, produce red and white blood cells, store minerals and also enable mobility. Bone tissue is a type of dense connective tissue. Bones present in a variety of shapes and sizes and have a complex internal and external structure.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory disorder that primarily affects joints. It may result in deformed and painful joints, which can lead to loss of function. The disease may also have signs and symptoms in organs other than joints. This creates inflammation that causes the tissue that lines the inside of joints (the synovium) to thicken, resulting in swelling and pain in and around the joints. The synovium makes a fluid that lubricates joints and helps them move smoothly.

Rheumatology

Rheumatology is the diagnosis and therapy of rheumatic diseases. Many of these diseases are now known to be disorders of the immune system, and rheumatology is increasingly the study of immunology. Rheumatic diseases affect your joints and muscles. Some, like osteoarthritis, are the result of wear and tear. Others, such as rheumatoid arthritis, are immune system problems.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic Arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis, a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and later will develop psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin lesions appear.

Lupus

Lupus is a chronic, autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body (skin, joints, and/or organs inside the body). Chronic means that the signs and symptoms tend to last longer than six weeks and often for many years. Lupus is also a disease of flares (the symptoms worsen and you feel ill) and remissions (the symptoms improve and you feel better).

Polymyalgia Rheumatic

Polymyalgia Rheumatic is abbreviated as PMR, is a syndrome with pain or stiffness, usually in the neck, shoulders, upper arms and hips, but which may occur all over the body. The pain can be very sudden, or may occur gradually over a period. It can be caused by an inflammation of blood vessels such as temporal arteritis. The pain and stiffness can weaken the patient if not treated, and may lead to severe depression

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Ankylosing Spondylitis is a form of spinal arthritis, chiefly affecting young males, that eventually causes ankylosis of vertebral and sacroiliac joints. It mainly affects joints in the spine and the sacroiliac joint in the pelvis. In severe cases, complete fusion and rigidity of the spine may occur. The signs and symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis often appear gradually, with peak onset being between 20 and 30 years of age.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic condition characterized by muscular or musculoskeletal pain with stiffness and localized tenderness at specific points on the body. Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender points, which can be relieved through medications, lifestyle also changes and stress management.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis also known as degenerative arthritis, degenerative joint disease, or osteoarthrosis. It is a type of joint disease that results from breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone. The most common symptoms are joint pain and stiffness. Initially just occurs after exercise but over time may become constant. Other symptoms may include joint swelling, decreased range of motion, and when the back is affected weakness or numbness of the arms and legs.

Glucosamine

Glucosamine is an amino sugar and a prominent precursor in the biochemical synthesis of glycosylated proteins and lipids. Glucosamine is a natural chemical compound found in the body. As a supplement, glucosamine is most often used to try to decrease the joint pain caused by arthritis. Glucosamine is a cellulose-like combination product containing naturally occurring "building blocks" used by the body to make cartilage.

Pain Relief

Pain Relief is techniques concerned with preventing or reducing pain. It is the branch of medicine which is used for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with pain. The team includes medical practitioners, pharmacists, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and clinical nurse specialists.

Knee Pain

Knee Pain is the common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury, such as a ruptured ligament or torn cartilage. Medical conditions including arthritis, gout and infections also can cause knee pain. Physical therapy and knee braces also can help to relieve knee pain. In some cases, knee may require surgical repair.

Dolor Lumbar

Low-back pain is one of the most common and costly musculoskeletal problems in modern society. It can cause people to stop exercising because of discomfort or fear of causing further injury to their back. Low-back pain is a costly illness for which spinal manipulative therapy is commonly recommended. Minor side effects such as increased back pain and stiffness were common but short-lived.

Bursitis

Bursitis is the inflammation of one or more bursae (small sacs) of synovial fluid in the body. They are lined with a synovial membrane that secretes a lubricating synovial fluid. Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs called bursae that cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near the joints. Bursitis occurs when bursae become inflamed. The most common locations for bursitis are the shoulder, elbow and hip. But you can also have bursitis by your knee, heel and the base of your big toe. Bursitis often occurs near joints that perform frequent motion.

Traumeel

Traumeel is a powerful, natural treatment that relieves musculoskeletal conditions such as pain and inflammation in the back, neck, knee, foot, wrist and other joints. Injuries to muscles and joints are the leading cause of absence from work. It relieves pain and inflammation, to get you going back to work. It is a composition of several natural ingredients that act together.
