The Different Types of Arthritis

Post  forumtester on Mon Mar 26, 2018 8:14 pm

Arthritis is caused by the body not been fed the proper nutrients that keep your joints healthly and free of wear and tear. Specific joints in your body can develop arthritic pain, namely the spine, knees, feet and hands. When your joints have bone-to-bone contact and grind against each other that area becomes swollen and inflamed.

Main Types

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where healthy cells and tissue are attacked by the immune system. Rheumatoid arthritis first affects the joint membranes and later the bone structure at the joint. The disease develops in people of all ages, and can become crippling as it progresses.

Gout is a disease where uric acid deposits in the joints of feet and legs. When the body has an excess of uric acid which it can’t eliminate through normal channels of elimination, i.e. the kidneys, the uric acid settles in the joints and soft tissue causing pain. Gout is more common with men, people with high blood pressure, alcoholics, diabetics, and those who are overweight.

Osteoarthritis is inflammation of the bony part of your joint. As your joints move against each other, the protective coating and surrounding material – membranes, oil sacs, cartilage – wear down. This occurs when the joints experience excess activity. Other factors that can contribute to osteoarthritis are nutrional deficiences and emotional state.

Lesser Known Types

Bursitis is inflammation of the shoulder joints and muscles.

Neuritis is rheumatism of the nerves.

Myositis is pain that comes from working hard causing friction inbetween the muscles.

Fibrositis is when connective tissue becomes inflamed.

Lumbago is mild to severe pain in the area of the lower back.
