arthritis causes and treatment

Understand, prevent and treat Arthritis the Ayurveda way!

Did you know that there are more than 100 different forms of arthritis, although osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are the most prevalent? In contrast to RA, which primarily affects the immune system and can damage joints as well as muscles, connective tissues, tendons and fibrous tissues, OA is the wear and tear of the cartilage that protects the ends of the bones. It can harm any joint, including the hands, hips, knees and spine.

Understanding Arthritis:

Arthritis is a leading cause of disability worldwide. It affects people of all ages, genders, and ethnicities, and its impact can vary from mild discomfort to debilitating pain.

Arthritis is a broad term used to describe inflammation of one or more joints. It refers to a group of conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, particularly he joints where two or more bones meet.

Different types of Arthritis:

Here is a list of different types of arthritis you should be aware of and take treatment:

  • Osteoarthritis: This type of arthritis occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of bones wears down due to age and obesity.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes inflammation of the lining of the joint.
  • Gout: Gout is characterized by sudden and severe attacks of pain, redness, and tenderness in the joints, often the big toe.
  • Ankylosing spondylitis: This type of arthritis primarily affects the spine, causing inflammation and stiffness in the vertebrae.
  • Lupus: Lupus is a disease that occurs when your body's immune system attacks your own tissues and organs including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart and lungs.
  • Psoriatic Arthritis: Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis — a disease that causes red patches of skin topped with silvery scales.

Know the causes of Arthritis:

 The causes of arthritis can vary depending on the specific type. However, common factors that contribute to the development of arthritis include:

  • Genetics: Some types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, have a genetic component. If you have ankylosing spondylitis, you may have pain and stiffness at night, in the morning, or when you're not active.
  • Age: Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, that is often associated with aging.
  • Joint injury: Trauma or injury to a joint can increase the risk of developing arthritis in that joint.
  • Autoimmune disorders: Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis occur when the body's immune system attacks its tissues, leading to joint inflammation.
  • Infection: Infections in the joint can sometimes trigger the development of certain types of arthritis.

Symptoms of Arthritis: 

Here are the common symptoms you should be vary of:

  • Joint pain: Pain in the affected joint(s) is a hallmark symptom of arthritis.
  • Stiffness: Joint stiffness, especially in the morning or after periods of inactivity, is common.
  • Swelling: Inflammation of the joints can cause swelling and tenderness.
  • Reduced range of motion: Arthritis can limit the movement of affected joints.
  • Fatigue: Many people with arthritis experience fatigue, which can be attributed to pain and inflammation.

Ways to prevent Arthritis:

Although age and genetics play a defiant role in the treatment of Arthritis, there are several methods and lifestyle changes one can adhere to in order to manage and stop the degeneration of this disease.
