National Rheumatology Society Pakistan

The field of Rheumatology has gained its importance rapidly in previous years. It is due to increase in prevalence of diseases in our population as well as worldwide. At present it is required to create awareness about this subject through education both professionally as well in public masses. This is the basic reason for forming NRS. This subject not only deals with treatment through medicines but also physical measures like physiotherapy, physical rehabilitation and exercises. This site also provides information that may be helpful to the patients with rheumatological diseases.
