Arthritis is a term often used to describe any disorder that affects the joints. Arthritis is a painful and degenerative condition marked by inflammation in the joints that cause pain and stiffness. Some of the common symptoms of arthritis include stiffness and joint pain, redness, swelling and limited range of motion of the affected joints. While there are over 100 types of arthritis, the most common forms of arthritis include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Other types of arthritis include lupus, septic arthritis, gout and Fibromyalgia. While a reduction in the normal amount of the cartilage tissue is the major Cause of Arthritis, the main goal of the treatment is to reduce the amount of pain you're experiencing and prevent additional damage to the joints. Although Managing Arthritis Pain is difficult because there is no known cure for Arthritis, treatment options vary depending upon the type of Arthritis, and the most common form of treatment involves physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and medications. Pain relief for arthritis involves applying cold and heat to inflamed joints and over-the-counter medications can help with minor pain and swelling associated with arthritis. However, severe cases of arthritis may often require surgery to repair replace damaged joints. Type of surgery used to treat arthritis include joint replacement, bone realignment, arthroscopic surgery and bone fusion.
