Pain arising out of soft tissue structures around the joints (soft tissue rheumatism) may be more common than symptoms arising from joints and bone. In the absence of diagnostic tests, attractive imaging techniques and exiting immunological theories to explain the pathogenesis of soft tissue rheumatism, research activities take a back seat. Soft tissue rheumatism could be classified as diffuse (Fibromyalgia), regional (Complex regional pain syndrome-CRPS) or localized such as in tennis elbow. Early diagnosis and use of multi- modal approach to therapy are essential.
