Feb 08, 2019

Sports and exercise are an integral part of treating the rheumatology patient. In this slideshow, we summarize studies that address this concept.

In a session at ACR 2018, rheumatologist and sports medicine specialist Andrew Concoff, M.D., spoke of the importance of exercise in arthritis treatment and the value in developing expertise in both rheumatology and sports medicine. In this slideshow, we focus on past and current developments in the use of sports and exercise medicine in rheumatic disease.
