Non-Surgical Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatments
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disease that causes the body’s immune system to attack its own joints. As a result, the joints become severely inflamed, leading to pain and swelling.
Rheumatoid arthritis frequently starts by attacking smaller joints, but if left untreated, it can affect the larger ones as well. When inflammation in any given joint goes too long without being treated, it can lead to a breakdown of cartilage and irreversible joint deformity.
Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms
Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis may include:
- Swollen joints
- Significant stiffness, especially in the mornings
- Fatigue or tiredness
- Weight loss
Rheumatoid arthritis is most commonly seen in the hands, wrist, feet, ankles, and elbows. Symptoms of this condition are typically symmetrical, meaning that if the right wrist is affected, the left wrist will likely become affected as well. It is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible when experiencing symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: Causes and Risk Factors
Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system attacks the lining of the membranes that surround the joints. The resulting inflammation can thicken and progress, eventually destroying the cartilage and bone within the joint and weakening the tendons and ligaments that hold the joint together. The joint then gradually loses its shape and alignment.
