What is Reiter's Syndrome?
Reiter's syndrome, or reactive arthritis, is caused by a infection in the urinary tract or elsewhere in the body that sets in motion a process of joint inflammationwith functional impotence and loss of mobility.
At the same time, this autoimmune disease carries signs of urethritis, inflammation due to infection of the urethra, uveitis or conjunctivitis.
Symptoms of Reiter's syndrome
The most common symptoms of Reiter's syndrome are related to the urine (burning, frequency, control of urination), low grade fever, discharge or redness of the eyes, joint pain or stiffness or skin ulcers.
Treatment of Reiter's syndrome
In the case of Reiter's syndrome, the treatment we propose at Biosalud begins by determining what has caused the onset of reactive arthritis, which is usually an infectious event. Once we have determined the source that has set the process in motion, we will regulate the immune system in such a way as to reduce the permanent inflammation that has occurred.
We will progressively apply the techniques of the biological medicine The most appropriate treatment to halt the progression of the disease and to return the patient to normality without pain and to regain function.
