Townsville University Hospital provides a Rheumatology (Arthritis) Clinic to residents at Mount Isa.
Rheumatology, or arthritis, is the name of a group of conditions that affect the body's joints. The word ‘arthritis’ literally means 'inflammation of the joint’.
Each type of arthritis affects you and your joints in different ways. But, most people with arthritis feel symptoms in the joints, muscles, and other soft tissues around the joints. They can experience:
- Pain or tenderness in joint/s
- Joint stiffness
- Warmth and/or redness in joint/s
- Difficulty using or moving a joint normally.
To access this service, please see your GP (doctor) for a referral.
