Arthritis is a common condition that affects the joints and causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. It can affect people of all ages, although it is more common in older adults. There are many different types of arthritis, but the most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that occurs when the protective cartilage that covers the ends of bones wears down over time.
Rheumatoid arthritis, an autoimmune disorder. This means that the body’s immune system attacks the joints, causing inflammation and damage.
The diagnosis of arthritis involves:
A thorough physical exam – This will involve a doctor looking for signs of inflammation and assessing the range of motion in the affected joints.
Imaging tests – X-ray, CT Scans, MRIs, can be used to evaluate the bones, joints, and surrounding tissues for any signs of damage.
Blood tests – Can identify certain markers that indicate an underlying condition that could be causing the arthritis.
Sometimes a biopsy may be needed to confirm the diagnosis.
