Common types of arthritis

Arthritis is characterized by joint pain and inflammation. The two most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, both of which can affect a single joint or multiple joints simultaneously.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, and it is usually easy to diagnose. It occurs when the cartilage in the joints deteriorates as a result of aging, injury, or overuse. This includes injuries sustained while participating in activities over the years as well as repetitive motions performed at work.

Obesity may also increase your risk of developing osteoarthritis by putting additional strain on joints of the lower extremities.

Accidents involving motor vehicles

In the weeks following a car accident, victims may experience widespread chronic pain. You may need surgery to correct medical problems; however, the recovery period following surgery can be difficult and painful.

Poor posture

Poor posture puts extra stress on your muscles and joints eventually leading to pain that is often chronic. Muscle imbalances occur and these can be identified one of our physical therapists and treated to help you improve posture and get rid of the chronic pain.

Chronic disease

Diseases such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, multiple sclerosis, shingles, and diabetic neuropathy can all cause chronic pain.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system misidentifies and attacks the joints. It causes stiffness, edema, and pain in the joints. Untreated, it can cause irreversible joint injury and deformity.

According to researchers, an individual’s medical history, environment including the food you eat, and hormones all play a role in the development of RA. As an autoimmune disease, it usually affects the same joints on opposite sides of the body.

RA affects more women than men and can cause pain while exercising or working.

Injuries at work

Chronic pain can result from any workplace accident or injury.

Compensation injuries

When one part of your body is injured or misaligned, the muscles and joints that support it will adjust to compensate. This compensatory pain is caused by moving joints or muscles incorrectly, putting strain on other parts of the body. For example, if the rotator cuff in your shoulder is weak then other muscles like the upper trapezius have to work harder and “out of their job description”. This can oftentimes cause pain in the shoulders or neck.

Another example is if you have an injury somewhere on one leg, you might put more pressure on the other leg while the injured one heals but compensating like this can cause pain in the opposite leg or even your back.
