Arthritis is an overarching term for more than 100 different conditions that cause inflammation of one or more joints in the body. Arthritis leads to joint pain, swelling, decreased range of motion, stiffness, painful heat and redness of the joint.
During a flare up, the pain can be moderate to very severe, in some cases becoming completely debilitating for the sufferer. The disease does not always display visible symptoms, so some individuals find it hard to find support and understanding, and avoid social outings and activities which can lead to loneliness and depression.
While osteo arthritis is caused by age-related wear and tear on joint cartilage, rheumatoid arthritis is caused by an autoimmune disorder where the immune system will attack the lining of the joint capsule. Other types of arthritis are caused by underlying conditions such as infection or lupus.
Risk factors for arthritis include previous injuries or obesity, which puts extra stress on the joints. Genetics and age play a factor as well. At this time there is no cure for arthritis.
Joint pain, similar to arthritis, is a pain where two bones of the body meet. It is typically caused by over-use of a joint, injury, or advanced age but can also be caused by an underlying medical condition.
Common areas of joint pain include the knees, hips, shoulders, hands and back.
