Extra-articular rheumatism includes all rheumatic diseases that affect the structures outside the joints such as tendons, ligaments and connective tissue structures. The combination of rehabilitation techniques, both dry, in water, and with mud, ideally combined with special massages, can aid in recovery and functional re-education in many situations in which the patient must return quickly to an active life, whether it be for professional sports or simply to regain the ability to resume normal daily activities.
Rheumatism of the shoulder
Adhesive capsulitis can occur even after a minor trauma, and sometimes arises spontaneously. Symptoms include pain in the shoulder when supporting weight and difficulty lifting and rotating the arm. Disorders of the rotator cuff include inflammation involving one or more of the four tendons of the shoulder rotator muscles. This pathology is caused by excessive strain which, if repeated, can lead to permanent damage of the cuff.
