Arthritis/Joint pain

Arthritis is a condition which affects your joints, making them stiff, painful and swollen. There are many different kinds of arthritis and they can affect people of any age.

The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis and is characterised by joint deterioration and loss of cartilage (the gel that acts as a shock absorber between joints). The condition causes early morning stiffness, pain that increases after activity, stiffness following periods of rest and loss of joint function.

Arthritis can be caused by:

  • Age
  • Fractures and mechanical damage
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Hormonal factors
  • Hypermobility/joint instability
  • Inflammation
  • Other factors
