Arthritis is a disease that causes pain and loss of movement in the joints. Arthritis refers to inflammation of joints due to infectious, metabolic, or constitutional causes. People suffering from arthritis, have varying significant pain, swelling, redness, and sometimes heat, that may be caused by tissue injury or disease in the joint.
There are many types of Arthritis pain. But, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis are the two main strains. The most common form of arthritis is Osteoarthritis. Cartilage between the bones gradually degenerates, and this can lead to painful rubbing of bone to bone in the joints. It may also cause misalignment of joints. The most frequently affected joints are in the hands, spine, knees and hips. Another, Rheumatoid arthritis is a more severe, but less common condition. The body’s immune system attacks and destroys the joint, causing pain and swelling. It can lead to reduction of movement, and the breakdown of bone and cartilage.
There are more over 200 strains of arthritis. Most common are:
Systemic Lupus Erythematosis
Arthritis largely affects older people, but it can also affect children. Older people suffers lot of arthritis pain like arthritic knee pain, arthritic joint pain, arthritic hip pain, arthritic neck pain, arthritic back pain and arthritic foot pain. Arthritic knee pain is quite painful as the knee has one of the widest ranges of motion of any joint. A knee damaged by arthritis may be a candidate for joint replacement. Arthritis Back pain is one of the most common and painful ailments, and can be hard to treat. Arthritis hip pain creates a limited range of motion, which makes walking, climbing, and bending, difficult. Nearly 60% of Americans with arthritis are women. About one in 1,000 children develop arthritis pain. Arthritis in children is often called Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA)
