Common Types of Arthritis you may have?

According to a research report from the Arthritis Society of Canada, one out of every five Canadians is liable to live with arthritis. Some may feel pain and may not while suffering from this devastating problem. There are different types of arthritis, some includes;

Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis also referred to as inflammatory arthritis, is quite common. It is a condition that occurs when the body’s immune system sees the joints as a threat and decides to attack them.

Medical history, hormones, and environment have been believed to be a factor that contributes to the development of rheumatoid arthritis.  Also, research shows that females are more likely to be affected compared to males. Anyone suffering from this type of arthritis has the risk of having the same joints on different sides of the body affected.

When someone has rheumatoid arthritis, soreness around joints is noticed, which worsens after prolonged standing, sitting, or inactivity. Also, any slight movement like bending causes pain.

You may notice sounds and painful sensations from affected joint(s) when walking or touching it. In some cases, while performing an exercise, arthritis can cause pain, and once you stop exercising, the pain disappears.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most occurring type of arthritis. Previously, researchers believed that arthritis was caused when the joint’s cartilage wears down due to excessive use of the joint. Later, it was discovered to be wrong. Arthritis is an age-related condition caused by genetic predisposition. A large percentage of people will get it, but the pain will vary from one another. You must know that not everyone having arthritis will feel pain. In fact, a large proportion of people do not feel pain at all. Our Arthritis Physiotherapy in Edmonton can help you fix your pain and provide wellness to you and your body.

Osteoarthritis is highly risky when developed, especially after a sustained injury to the affected joint that needed surgical correction. When this is left to heal, it can result in severe pain later. For instance, imagine you were a football player in a high school who suffered a harsh blow to the knee that needed surgical reconstruction of the ligaments. You received treatment, recovered, then returned to the game. To everyone, you are fully fit, but if your cartilage was damaged to the extent that it wasn’t noticeable (symptomatic) at that moment, later it will become an issue. Arthritis Physiotherapy in Edmonton can help you aid with your condition and rehab quickly as soon as possible.

Overweight patients were thought to be at a greater risk of developing osteoarthritis because an additional strain is grown at your knee and hip joints. Later, this hypothesis was dropped due to a lack of evidence to back it. However, we do know that being overweight can contribute to arthritis-related pain in your knee. Some reports show that a 10% weight reduction of the body can lower the possibility of arthritis at the knee by 50%. That’s why it is highly beneficial to develop a healthy body and live a healthy lifestyle to improve your overall condition.
