What Causes Arthritis ?

What Causes Arthritis

  • Normal ageing process and wear and tear are the likely factors for causing lack of elasticity and flexibility of the cartilage in the joints.
  • Over straining the back may cause damage to the ligaments and other vertebral discs.
  • Occupation and lifestyle may also be related to arthritis. For example, a particular kind of posture or strain on a particular joint may cause osteoarthritis of that part of the joint.
  • Excessive weight may also affect the larger weight bearing joints-chiefly hips, knees and spine.
  • Hereditary factor - incidence of rheumatoid arthritis is higher than expected in twins and first-degree relations.
  • Rise in uric acid in blood serum is likely to cause gout.
  • Mental tension/stress cannot be ruled out for the emotional and physical manifestation of the disease, pain and depression.
  • Damp and cold weather often causes and aggravates this disease.
  • Having stiffness or pain when you move, could be a sign of arthritis.

Other factors that can cause arthritis:
  • Hidden birth defects
  • Injuries
  • Infections
  • Drug side effects
  • Biomechanical factors
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Hormonal factors
  • Altered immune system
