Understanding Arthritis

Arthritis is a common condition among the elderly and seniors, though it can also happen to children. There are over 100 types of arthritis with common types such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, gout, and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. The cause of arthritis depends on the type of arthritis. The general deterioration of joints and cartilages is usually diagnosed as osteoarthritis Rheumatoid arthritis is caused by the inflammation of joints which can also affect other organs. Another type of arthritis is infectious arthritis which is caused by an infection of bacteria or viruses. The symptoms of arthritis include joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. Keep in mind, it is normal for joints to feel sore after a long day of activities, but if you’re experiencing pain and stiffness after waking up, it could be arthritis. Consult your doctor if you believe you’re presenting symptoms of arthritis. Learn more about arthritis from PubMed.
