What Is Arthritis?

Essentially, arthritis is the medical term for joint pain or joint disease that is characterized by swelling and tenderness of the joint(s). According to the Arthritis Foundation, arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States, and there are over 100 types of arthritis and related conditions. There are two main categories of arthritis, osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and predominately occurs in the hands, spine, hips, and knees. This type of arthritis occurs as a result of wear and tear and the breakdown of the entire joint.  As the joint breaks down, the bones get weak, bone spurs grow, and the connective tissues and cartilage begin to deteriorate. Furthermore, inflammation in the joint causes damage to the joint lining.

Inflammatory arthritis occurs when the inflammatory response of the body is overactive, causing the immune system to attack the joints and the joint lining. Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common type of inflammatory arthritis. Other types of inflammatory arthritis include psoriatic arthritis, axial spondyloarthritis, gout, and juvenile arthritis.

What Causes Arthritis?

Inflammation within the body is a key component causing the symptoms of arthritis. While the risk of developing arthritis does increase with age, old age does not necessarily mean that you will develop this condition. There are many factors that play a role in the development of arthritis and the symptoms that are experienced. Some of these factors include the following:

  • Previous joint injury
  • Obesity
  • Poor diet
  • Stress
  • Smoking
  • Excessive antibiotic treatment
  • Microbiome imbalances
  • Repetitive strenuous physical activity

What Are The Symptoms Of Arthritis?

Arthritis can affect any joint(s) in the body and typically results in pain, swelling, tenderness, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. The symptoms may be mild or severe. They can also come and go and can progress over time. Some people find that a change in weather plays a role in the presence and severity of symptoms.

The symptoms of arthritis can cause many complications in life, making it difficult to perform everyday tasks such as typing on a computer or opening a jar. Arthritis in weight-bearing joints can make it difficult to be active, climb stairs, or even walk. In some cases, joints may gradually lose their alignment and shape.
