Articles on Arthritis

Arthritis, a disease involving painful inflammation of the joint and related structural changes. There are 100 recognized causes of arthritis, many of which are temporary or curable. And even if the diagnosis turns out to be rheumatoid arthritis, most cases can be managed so as to preserve reasonable function. Any chronic joint problem that limits function or requires pain medication deserves the attention of a physician skilled in the diagnosis and treatment of joint diseases. Note: An acute joint flare-up - swollen, hot, red, painful and often associated with fever - constitutes a medical emergency and should be evaluated immediately. While there are many causes of joint problems, the following are two most common types of chronic joint disease. They are Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Osteoarthritis, the most arthritis disease involving a painful deterioration of the cartilage in the joints that disables senior adults. There are several risk factors for osteoarthritis which we should take note such as, age, smoking, BMI at age 40 and lack of hormone therapy (in women). Rheumatoid Arthritis, another type of arthritis, a disease of our immune system involving painful inflammation of the joints and related structural changes.
