Arthritis

Arthritis is number one chronicle pain and disability to work and accomplishing everyday activities. It is calculated that around 300 millions of people in the world suffer from this type of illness. As a matter of fact arthritis includes more than 100 diseases which cause pain and swelling of the joints.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most frequent form of arthritis and mostly older people suffer from this kind of illness. Almost every time when we speak about pain in the joints we talk about rheumatism but in most cases we deal with osteoarthritis. In this type of arthritis there is no inflammation of the joints, but we have chronic, degenerative illness of the joints which is characterized with damage of the joint gristle. The gristle that is in a collision with the bone starts to erode and dissipate and after some period of time the bones are damaged and it comes to forming the so called osteophytes, which causes extreme pain in the joints. The most often places where this osteophytes are formed are in the knees, hips and spine.

Inflammatory arthritis

This chronic disease appears as a result of unidentified reasons and attacking the immune system of the gristle and the surrounding tissue. As the inflammation progresses the condition becomes worse and worse, and it leads to tightening of the gristle, pain and swelling of the joints. The main cause for this type of arthritis is the rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammation of the synovia (fine layer which overlays the gristle). Because of this type of inflammation different bacteria’s are released that damages the gristle and the bone of the joint. This type of arthritis causes pain and swelling in the joints.
