No matter a person’s age, arthritis can arise in many forms and cause significant pain and discomfort. The most commonly known form of arthritis is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that progresses as people age. Inflammatory arthritis can affect younger people and can be treated with a variety of therapies.

Common Types of Arthritis

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid
  • Lupus

Rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis associated with Lupus can involve debilitating pain in multiple joints at one time. Because of their severity, these types of arthritis are generally more difficult to treat and don’t always respond to treatments or therapies right away. Treatment usually begins with non-operative treatments which may include activity modification, medications, and exercise programs/ therapy. Maintaining ideal body weight also has been shown to decrease arthritis pain in the lower extremity. On occasion, surgery may be required to alleviate the pain of arthritis.
