Etymologically breaking the word Arthritis gives joint and swelling. And it is a situation which has a fixed type or fixed sets of symptoms and the treatments. It is commonly found in many sportsperson in the form of tennis elbow. It is albeit a mild form of the same. It is found in severe cases where it leads to crippling. Fibromyalgia is the most common symptoms of the disorder. The meaning of the syndrome is "pain in the joints and the tissues". This takes all the body parts in a single shot.
The most common of all is osteoarthritis. There are tissues which connect the bones which we call as cartilage. In this type of disorder, the cartilages get wasted away and thus every movement between the joints delivers a huge amount of pain. Moreover the joints may also get disoriented. This type of disorder is found in hips, hands and knees.
Albeit a less common but more deteriorating one is Rheumatoid arthritis in which the joint is assaulted and thus the inflammation is the consequence to the attack. The bones become way too much fragile for the movements.
Having discussed the main types we will put some light over why these disorders take place.
Needless to say elderly are the most affected by it. You may have seen gerontologists struggling with this major problem of the elderly. The reason being, that the cartilages become less powerful to be able to heal themselves even from minor injuries and bruises.
Another major scenario is where people with excessive weights visit doctors for the very same reason. With the increasing weight, the pressure over the joints is augmented and thus the odds of cartilages being assaulted get a new height. This is the only reason that obese have some problems in squatting. Also the most affected part is hips.
Moreover, the above listed are the reason which are acquired naturally. But there are places, mainly the occupation pertaining places, where people tend to acquire the disorder. The common among them are construction sites where the workers are supposed to put in all the efforts physically making their bones and joints suffer. (This is the reason it is always recommended to go for warm up before doing any physical exercise).
Having discussed the causes and the types of arthritis, let us step up the ladder with its treatment.
