Osteoarthritis - Beyond Wear and Tear Blog Read
Welcome back to the blog! Osteoarthritis has been a bit of a passion project of mine over the last few months, learning and absorbing, finally attempting to disseminate what I believe to be the most up to date understandings around how the condition develops. I ran a webinar with BASRaT entitled "Osteoarthritis - Beyond Wear and Tear" and I have taken some of the questions from it and answered them. For an in-depth read about Osteoarthritis you can get my "Osteoarthritis - Clinician Edition" as an EBook or Printed Please consider heading to the shop to find more resources and supporting me to continue this hairbrained project! Or you can Buy A Coffee

Reactive Arthritis Blog Read
Welcome back to the blog! I decided to run a poll on what to publish this week and the results are in! Reactive Arthritis just edged out Sjogrens Syndrome so we will get to that next time. Reactive Arhtritis has gained a little bit of attention recently in Rheumatology circles although I suspect this has passed many of us by so I hope this blog provides some more detail. It is relatively rare, 30-40/10000 but i have seen it a few times in MSK clinics and Orthopaedics over the years. Read Here SHOP

What is Rheumatology? Blog Read
We are back, another week, another blog. I have been thinking this week about Rheumatology and its place in the hearts and minds of MSK Therapists. While I was thinking about this I found the start of a blog I planned on writing about 2 years ago and it triggered me to write this. I am going for a shameless request this week to increase visibility. Why not suggest it to a colleague, tag them on social media or bring it up in a training session? Its much more fun when we learn together!

Recognising Rheumatology Conditions Blog Read
Thank you to @TaiwanOzPhysio for bringing a paper to my attention which is used as the basis for this blog post (see reference at the end). Clearly recognising rheumatology conditions is of interest to me… This paper is interesting because it literally attempted to test this skill in Physiotherapists, we will talk a little bit about it in this post. Please do consider checking out my shop for further learning resources to help you with your clinical knowledge and help support me to continue providing blogs, videos and more!

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis Blog Read
I have for a long time avoided this subject and I have decided to finally try and include this in my repertoire as the number of questions continues to increase. This is certainly an evolving area of knowledge for me and as a result this is not complete, nor do I expect it to be free from errors. Keep an eye out for further blogs and resources on the subject as I am able to learn more.

Spondyloarthritis Nomenclature Update Blog Read
Spondyloarthritis is an umbrella term covering a number of clinical diagnoses that can be broadly described as “enthesitic” in nature. This is an oversimplification but I find it helpful to understand where the site of inflammatory effect is and why certain extra articular features manifest.

RheumMates Session 2 - BSR Early Inflammatory Arthritis Audit
RheumMates where we discuss Rheumatology topics of interest to the MSK clinician.    In this session we discuss an audit that looked at what happened to Newly diagnosed Rheumatoid Arthritis patients up to one year after diagnosis. Jack and Mike are reassured by outcomes, frustrated at the lack of similar clinics for AxSpA patients and hopeful for the future. Plus Jack starts a new feature that both he and Mike may regret quickly...

RheumMates - Session 1
RheumMates where we discuss Rheumatology topics of interest to the MSK clinician.  In this session we discuss a paper with a surprising (to Jack and Mike anyway) conclusion. We were surprised to read that if someone doesnt respond well to NSAIDs and doesnt have protracted early morning spinal stiffness then you can pretty much rule out Spondyloarthritis.  We are not certain thats the case so we had a chat about it!  Paper Link HERE Follow Jack @physiojack and Mike @MRheumy on twitter, subscribe to the podcast and check out rheumatology.physio for further resources!
