Types of Arthritis

Arthritis comes in more than 100 types, but the most common types are-

1. Osteoarthritis

This arthritis is related to the bones. It is found in the areas of knees, hips, and fingers. This type of arthritis occurs around middle age due to degeneration of bones.

2. Rheumatoid arthritis

This type of arthritis takes place when the immune system attacks the bodily tissues and joints. An inflammation is caused in joints. The synovial fluid which lubricates joints and helps them make movement, is affected adversely.

Causes of Arthritis

Like in case of most diseases, lifestyle is a common cause.

1. Lack of attention to fitness

Lack of fitness promotes a sedentary lifestyle. It reduces body movements which help in gaining weight and puts pressure on joints.

2. Unhealthy eating habits

Unhealthy, junk and excessive amounts of food increase cholesterol and fat deposit in the body.

3. Haphazard sleeping schedule

We need 7-8 hours of good sleep daily. Without it, the body cannot rest well nor can it prepare for further activities. Exertion allows the body to degenerate rapidly.

All these affect the lifestyle gravely. It reflects in the way your body functions. The trick is to listen to the body and take immediate measures.

Other Causes:

1. Injuries & Infections

Arthritis treatments
