Arthritis is a painful disease affecting the whole body, and in particular the joints. There are 100s of different types of arthritis, but the two most well known forms are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis Arthritis is the most common form, also known as degenerative joint disease. Most of us refer to it as ‘wear and tear’, and it is almost inevitable as we age. It may be created from an unbalanced spine creating stress on the joints. As the spine wears, extra bone may grow, further impinging on the nerves that cause Arthritis pain.
Rheumatoid arthritis may affect people as young as 30 years old. Nobody knows what causes Rheuatoid arthritis for certain, and it may disappear suddenly. It destroys the joints, affects the heart, blood vessels, eyes, skin, muscles and other organs, causing fatigue and pain.
