What Causes Arthritis Disease?
Arthritis disease is actually inflammation in the joints.
When an injury occurs that joint becomes tender, painful, stiff, and swollen. If the inflammation is there for an extended period then the tissues will be permanently damaged.
A joint is located where two bones meet and this can be in areas such as your hands, fingers, hips, and knees.
3 Types of Arthritis Disease
Generally, there are over one hundred types of this disease.
The more common types are:
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
When your body has difficulty getting rid of uric acid, you develop gout in your wrists, knees, or big toes.
Rheumatoid arthritis can affect the same areas including your back.
It develops when the immune system starts attacking the body and the lining of the joint gets swollen. If the cartilage from your bones wears down it is a cause of arthritis and you can get osteoarthritis.
This arthritis disease comes with friction in the back as well as the spine when that cartilage lining is not there. It is very painful.
Cause of Arthritis Disease
The main cause of arthritis disease is simply aging.
The weight-bearing, especially in cases where people are obese and overuse of your joints acts on the lining and it degenerates over time. Some people develop arthritis disease because of their genetic makeup. Others are at risk because they do repetitive actions throughout their lifetime like sewing, texting, or typing.
How to Avoid Arthritis Disease
There are several preventative measures that you can take to avoid becoming an arthritis patient.
First and foremost learn to control your weight.
This can be done by exercising, using lightweight, and eating healthy. You can do exercises that require little to no contact or impact like swimming and yoga. Also, try not to engage in activities where you have a high possibility of being injured.
Taking care of your overall health and wellness will help you to maintain a healthier lifestyle as you age.
