Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. Arthritis is not a single disease - it is a term that covers over 100 medical conditions. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis and generally affects elderly patients. Some forms of arthritis can affect people at a very early age.

Types of arthritis:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Infectious arthritis (septic arthritic)
  • Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA)
  • Gout and pseudo-gout
  • Still’s disease
  • Ankylosing spondylitis

Signs and symptoms:
Regardless of the type of arthritis, the common symptoms for all arthritis disorders include varied levels of pain, swelling, joint stiffness, and sometimes a constant ache around the joint(s). Arthritic disorders like lupus and rheumatoid can also affect other organs in the body with a variety of symptoms.

  • Inability to use the hand or walk
  • Malaise and a feeling of tiredness
  • •Weight loss
  • •Poor sleep
  • •Muscle aches and pains
  • •Tenderness
  • Difficulty moving the joint

It is common in advanced arthritis for significant secondary changes to occur. For example, in someone who has limited their physical activity:

  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of flexibility
  • •Decreased aerobic fitness

These changes can also impact on life and social roles, such as community involvement.

Diagnosis:
Diagnosis can be made basing on the clinical presentation supported with X-ray, CT, MRI and appropriate blood tests
