Arthritis refers to joint inflammation surrounding the tendons, ligaments and cartilage. It can affect virtually every part of the body. The symptoms range from slight pain, joint stiffness to crippling disability.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease in which small bony growths appear on large weight bearing joints. It usually affects people over the age of 50. The symptoms include:
- Early morning stiffness or stiffness following periods of rest
- Pain that worsens with joint use
- Loss of joint function
- Local tenderness
- Soft tissue swelling
- Creaking and cracking of joints with movement
- Bone swelling
- Restricted mobility
Rheumatoid arthritis is a rare and serious joint disorder. It incapacitates the synovial tissue (the soft tissue that lines the non-cartilaginous surfaces of joints with cavities). This results in the synovial joints of the body becoming tender, swollen or even deformed. Women are more often affected by arthritis than men. Some of the symptoms include:
- Joint stiffness and joint pain
- Painful, swollen joints appear within several weeks of the first attack
