Inflammatory Disorders

Inflammation refers to a biological response to stimuli interpreted by the body to have a potentially harmful effect. Inflammation is a normal, healthy response to injury, infections or certain other medical conditions. An inflammatory disorder, however, is where the immune system mistakenly attacks your body’s own cells or tissues. This causes abnormal inflammation that can result in chronic pain, redness, swelling, stiffness and damage to otherwise healthy body tissues.
