Why do rheumatology patients choose Complementary and Alternative Medicine therapies?

Rheumatic diseases are associated with reduced productivity, increased risk of disability, and lowered quality of life. Conventional therapies for rheumatic diseases like nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), and biologics have potential and realized side effects. Consequently, some patients decline these conventional therapies, opting for other forms of treatments such as CAM, with the belief that these therapies are effective and safer.
