Rheumatism is a very common condition. Rheumatism is a collective name for 100 different chronic conditions. Rheumatism causes pain and stiffness in the muscles, joints and tendons.
About 2.5 million Dutch people experience long-term (chronic) rheumatic complaints. Most of these complaints are idiopathic, meaning that the cause is unknown. Rheumatism cannot be cured today, but it can be treated with therapies, medicines and various aids. A mix of these three is certainly possible.
When we talk about Rheumatism, it is also referred to as Rheumatoid Arthritis. Rheumatism is an autoimmune disease. The body produces antibodies to protect the body against diseases. However, in an autoimmune disease, antibodies are produced that turn against the body, in this case within the wrist joint. As a result, the tissue within the wrist is seen as "foreign" and the joint will be damaged.

Rheumatism at the wrist occurs at many different ages, from young to old. A common statement is that rheumatism is hereditary. However, it does not come about just like that. There are several causes that can cause rheumatism. However, there are still many studies going on how Rheumatism "exactly" arises. Until now, we know that the immune system can become disrupted by, for example, excessive stress on the wrist, bacterial infections or stress.
