Types of Arthritis - What Are They?


Rheumatic arthritis is an inflammatory condition that affects more than just the joints. Unlike osteoarthritis, which is caused by the wear and tear of time, rheumatic arthritis causes a deep inflammation in the tissue of your joints, resulting in deep swelling and eventual joint deformity, as well as bone erosion.


While most types of arthritis affect the joints themselves, other forms can occur in other locations. Examples of these conditions include neuropathies, psoriatic arthritis and juvenile rheumatism. Each type of arthritis will have its own specific symptoms, but these symptoms are

usually similar. The primary symptom of rheumatic arthritis is pain. Pain can range from mild to severe and will be constant, regardless of which joint or area of the body is affected.


Although pain is common among all kinds of arthritis, pain varies greatly depending on where you are located in your body. The most commonly located area in the body affected by arthritis is the hand. Joint pain is also very common in the neck, hips and spine. In addition, some people with rheumatic arthritis may develop other pain in the body, such as in the jaw, face or feet.


When pain is present, it can be difficult to determine if it is caused by a flare up of the arthritis itself or a symptom of something else. The most common cause of pain in arthritis is overuse and/or inflammation of the joint(s). The swelling is caused when the joint(s) is inflamed, and this causes pain and tenderness. Sometimes, overuse and inflammation cause the pain to spread to the bones and the surrounding tissues. When pain is due to a bone fracture, bone deterioration can be the result of inflammation, resulting in weakness, loss of coordination and mobility problems, and bone fractures can also result in permanent damage of the bones.


Arthritis affects not only the joints but other areas of the body as well, such as the kidneys, lungs, and heart valves. These other areas can also become inflamed as well and cause discomfort. Other causes of pain in arthritis include:


There are many different forms of arthritis, and not all of them are treatable using standard medications and procedures. There are special medical and surgical procedures available for those who suffer from one or more of the forms of arthritis.


Rheumatoids are a group of autoimmune diseases (a condition that affects your immune system and attacks your own healthy cells), and they are classified into two basic categories. These categories are rheumatic and non-hereditary. Non-hereditary forms are often inherited genetically and can lead to the onset of symptoms in adults.


Some people with rheumatic arthritis are genetically predisposed to develop the disorder, but most children have no history of this condition. The treatment of non-hereditary rheumatic arthritis is aimed at reducing or eliminating the symptoms. Non-hereditary forms of rheumatic arthritis can be controlled with the use of medications (NSAIDs, aspirin, prednisone) and surgery (arthroscopic techniques). In addition to medication and surgery, non-hereditary forms of arthritis may need to be treated with cortisone injection into the joint. The type of cortisone used will depend on whether it is steroidal or non-steroidal in nature.


Osteoarthritis is an arthritic disease of the bones and cartilage. This is not only affecting the joints but also can affect the spinal cord and brain. This type of arthritis can be difficult to diagnose and treat as it is often misdiagnosed by some doctors as a less serious type of arthritis, because the symptoms can resemble those of several other diseases, such as diabetes, headaches or even headaches with similar characteristics.


Osteoarthritis can be caused by genetic causes, which can make diagnosis difficult. Certain health conditions (such as diabetes or other kidney conditions) can lead to the development of osteoarthritis, and it can take some time for these conditions to show up and symptoms to begin to worsen.


Arthritis can also be caused by overuse of the joints and muscles, and poor posture. This condition is called gout. Gout can occur in several different areas of the body and is often caused by a buildup of uric acid crystals that can irritate the joints.


Most types of rheumatoid arthritis can be managed and treated, although the prognosis varies depending on the type of arthritis. Surgery may be required in cases where the disease has progressed too far, but it is important to realize that treatment may not be necessary in the beginning. In most cases, patients can begin the treatments that will relieve their symptoms by improving diet, exercise, and taking vitamin supplements. While there are no known cures for this condition, there are ways that patients can reduce the symptoms of the disease and keep the joint joints healthy and free of pain and swelling.
