More than 50 million Americans suffer from arthritis. Regardless of the type, arthritis typically causes a swelling and stiffness of the joints, making it hard to move and decreasing your range of motion. The 2 main types of arthritis, Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis, are chronic illnesses that can be controlled through a combination of physical therapy, medications, and procedures.

Osteoarthritis Pain

As the most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis is a major problem for many people. It occurs primarily because of age and overuse of certain joints. As you age, normal wear and tear, or injury or trauma the protective cartilage that sits between your bones and joints deteriorates, causing them to grind on one another and deteriorate. Normally, cartilage acts as a cushion for the bones that form the joint, so without this, the bones may begin to rub on each other. It usually affects the knees, feet, hips, fingers, and spine. When osteoarthritis occurs in the knees, hips, and back it becomes a major cause of lower back pain, hip pain, and knee pain.  Osteoarthritis is also common in athletes from the repetitive stress they put on their joints from playing sports.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is another very common type of arthritis. It’s a type of auto-immune disease where your body mistakenly begins to attack the joint tissues, causing swelling, inflammation, and joint pain. This kind of arthritis can also cause fluid to build up in the joints, limiting your mobility and possibly causing permanent joint damage if not corrected.
