Private Rheumatologist in London

A specialist rheumatologist is trained to diagnose Rheumatoid Arthritis or another condition such as Soft Tissue Rheumatism. Suppose you have been experiencing unexplained pain in your muscles, joints or the soft tissues of your body, and it doesn’t seem to be subsiding over time. In that case, booking a private consultation with Dr Bhadauria , a private rheumatologist in London, is worth booking.

Soft tissue rheumatism is a painful condition that affects the tendons, ligaments, fascia and bursae. It is quite a common inflammatory condition and is often brought on by an injury, repetitive strain or overuse of your body through sports or work activities.

These inflammatory health conditions can worsen over time and need medical intervention to help slow the deterioration of ligaments and joints and manage the associated pain. The first step is to book a private consultation with Dr Bhadauria in one of his London-based clinics.

Diagnosing your condition

Many inflammatory health conditions can share the same symptoms, so getting a proper diagnosis from a specialist rheumatologist is essential to have other causes for your pain and discomfort ruled out.

A part of coming to a diagnosis is ruling out other potential underlying causes that can continue to cause you problems if they are not detected and correctly treated. This is why rheumatologists are so thorough with their tests to ensure that nothing is missed.

You can expect a face-to-face talk with Dr Bhadauria during your private consultation, where he will ask questions about your painful experiences, and you will have a physical examination to check the level of mobility in the affected joints.

Other tests can include blood tests and body scans such as X-rays or MRI scans to help assess the condition of your joints and soft tissues.

Treating your inflammatory condition

Dr Bhadauria is a specialist rheumatologist, but that doesn’t mean he only specialises in rheumatoid arthritis or soft tissue rheumatism. Rheumatologists are trained to diagnose a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions, as well as autoimmune and inflammatory diseases in people of all ages, including:

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (ELS)
  • Vasculitis
  • Shoulder, knee and back problems
  • Sports injuries

Treatment and long-term pain management

Many inflammatory diseases don’t have a cure. This means that you will need long-term management of your condition to slow its progression, manage your symptoms and deal with flares. Treatments can include making lifestyle changes to improve your diet and reduce stress, improving joint and muscle strength, pain-reliving medications and even surgery.

Pain relief can be oral medication or corticosteroid joint injections, depending on your condition and the severity of the symptoms. In some cases, surgery may be recommended that will improve joint mobility, or joint replacement surgery may be an option.

Dr Bhadauria treats patients with various health conditions that can be short-term, lifelong or complex. The earlier you can get a diagnosis and start receiving the most appropriate treatment, the better it will be for the long-term management of your condition.

You can book a private consultation with Dr Bhadauria at one of his London-based practices.
