A Better Understanding of Arthritis
It’s easy to ignore the common signs of arthritis, but paying attention to whatever pain you’re experiencing will help you avoid its long-term effects. Arthritis can affect every joint of your body, including your feet, knees, shoulders, back, and fingers. Characterised by the inflammation of joints, ligaments, cartilage and tendons, this condition may come in the form of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis and Gout.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis characterised by joint degeneration, which causes pain, deformity and movement problems. It involves no inflammation. Rheumatoid Arthritis is inflammation of joints that affects feet, hands, wrists, knees and ankles. The affected joints turn red, swell, and deteriorate. Gout is a condition associated with excessive amount of uric acid in the blood. It usually occurs on the joint of the big toe.
