What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are joint pain and stiffness, which typically worsen with age. The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Different types of arthritis have different causes. For instance, gout is the result of too much uric acid in your body. But for other types of arthritis, the exact cause is unknown. You may develop arthritis if you:
• Have a family history of arthritis.
• Have a job or play a sport that puts repeated stress on your joints.
• Have certain autoimmune diseases or viral infections.
The most common signs and symptoms of arthritis involve the joints. Depending on the type of arthritis, signs and symptoms may include:
• Decreased range of motion
Signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include:
Tender, warm, swollen joints
Joint stiffness that is usually worse in the mornings and after inactivity
Fatigue, fever, and loss of appetite Early rheumatoid arthritis affect your smaller joints first — particularly the joints that attach your fingers to your hands and your feet.
As the disease progresses, symptoms often spread to the wrists, knees, ankles, elbows, hips, and shoulders. In most cases, symptoms occur in the same joints on both sides of your body.
About 40% of people who have rheumatoid arthritis also experience signs and symptoms that don’t involve the joints. Areas that may be affected include:
6. Salivary glands
7. Nerve tissue
8. Bone marrow
9. Blood vessels
10. Rheumatoid arthritis signs and symptoms may vary in severity and may even come and go. Periods of increased disease activity, called flares, alternate with periods of relative remission — when the swelling and pain fade or disappear. Over time, rheumatoid arthritis can cause joints to deform and shift out of place
How can arthritis be prevented?
You can lower your chances of developing arthritis by:
• With medications which is suggested by doctors or experts.
• Avoiding tobacco products.
• Doing low-impact, non-weight-bearing exercise.
• Maintaining a healthy body weight.
• Reducing your risk of joint injuries.
Some causes of arthritis are beyond your control, like growing older, being female, or having a family history of arthritis. But you can take steps to reduce your risk of arthritis or delay its onset.
Here’s how to keep your joints healthy as you age:
1. Stay at a healthy weight. Extra pounds put pressure on weight-bearing joints like hips and knees. Each pound you gain adds nearly four pounds of stress on your knees and puts six times the pressure on your hips.
2. Control your blood sugar. High blood sugar can stiffen the tissue that supports your joints, making them more sensitive to stress.
3. Exercise. Five times a week, 30 minutes of exercise helps joints stay limber and strengthens the muscles that support your knees and hips. Focus on low-impact exercises like walking, cycling, or swimming.
4. Stretch. Gentle stretching can improve your range of motion and keep your joints limber. Try to work in simple stretches every day.
5. Avoid injury. An injured joint is more likely to develop arthritis than one that was never injured. Wear protective gear when playing sports and always lift with your knees and hips, not your back.
6. Quit smoking. Smoking puts stress on tissues that protect your joints and can lead to arthritis pain. Learn how Blue Cross can help you quit.
7. Eat fish twice a week. Eat fish high in Omega-3s, like salmon, trout, and mackerel. Omega-3s have many health benefits and may reduce inflammation.
8. Get routine preventive care. Your doctor may be able to suggest lifestyle changes that can help reduce your risk or slow the progress of arthritis.
