Rheumatism includes a large number of symptoms inside and around the joints or elsewhere in the musculoskeletal system. Rheumatism can therefore be a disease of the joints but also a disease of muscles or connective tissue.
Some forms of rheumatic diseases are:
- Chronic joint rheumatism or R.A. (reumatoide arthitis ) of R.A.
- Osteoarthritis ( joint wear)
- Bechterew’s disease
- Soft tissue rhemathism
- Arthritis psoriasis
As a medical pedicurist and teacher, I specialize in the care of the rheumatic foot. As with the diabetes mellitus, it is often partially or fully reimbursed by supplementary health insurance. With regard to these patients, we keep a very close eye on the pressure points and friction spots on the foot and under the foot so that the client can walk comfortably and without any complications.
It is important for you to know that I have good contact with several chiropodists and podiatrists in Amsterdam and surroundings for possible referrals.
