What Causes Arthritis
Various kinds of arthritis can affect different parts of the body other than joints such as the eyes, lungs, skin, and even the heart. The main types of arthritis include inflammatory, degenerative, metabolic, and infectious.
Inflammatory arthritis occurs when the immune system mistakenly starts to attack the joints with inflammation causing erosion and possible damage to eyes, vital organs, and other parts of the body.
Typical examples of inflammatory arthritis consist of rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis affects the joints, mostly in the hands and feet, and can cause damage in a variety of body systems, including skin, eyes, lungs, heart, and blood vessels. This condition occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks its own body tissues. Rheumatoid Arthritis is most common among older people, but can affect anyone as it is a common form of inflammatory arthritis.
Degenerative arthritis happens when bone cartilage begins to deteriorate causing stiffness, swelling, and pain from bone rubbing against bone. The pain related to degenerative arthritis can become chronic, and joints can become frail from long-term symptoms. Osteoarthritis is the most recognizable form of degenerative arthritis.
When uric acid — an organic chemical that deteriorates particular substances from cells and food — builds up, it can form needle-shaped crystals within the joints causing abrupt shots of debilitating pain referred to as a gout attack. Gout episodes from metabolic arthritis are acute but can become chronic with long-lasting pain and disability if uric acid levels cannot become lower.
Various bacteria like salmonella, gonorrhea, or hepatitis C can infect joints and cause what is known as infectious arthritis. Antibiotics may generally treat the infection found in the joints if used promptly; however, the symptoms may become chronic.
Only through physical examinations with possible imagine scanning and blood tests help a physician accurately diagnosis and determine the type of arthritis. And there are several options available that may help increase mobility, preserve joint capabilities, and improve the overall quality of life — both medically and holistically.
