Arthroblog No 3 Rheumatoid arthritis
When you see the word arthritis,
think of warm, swollen, tender and stiff joints. Rheumatoid is more difficult to understand - it means “like rheumatism”. Rheumatism stands in much the same relationship to the science of medicine
as the term Mixed Grill does to the art of cooking. It was once thought to be
the result of a “peccant humour” or “rheum” which flowed through the body from
the brain downwards, stirring up pain in the organs it traversed, and swelling
of the joints into which it flowed.
