Information on Arthritis
Degenerative arthritis (osteoarthritis) is often the cause of familiar arthritis symptoms such as pain and stiffness. It is important to note that there are more than 100 types of arthritis include rheumatoid arthritis and gout. A diagnosis is necessary in order to develop a treatment plan. Many individuals have found that CBD oil has helped with the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis.
Many people don’t know that there is more than one type of arthritis. While there are over 100 types of arthritis, the three most common types are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. Osteoarthritis is generally understood to be the “wear and tear” arthritis while rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory type of arthritis that happens when the body’s immune system does not work properly.
Arthritis is a condition that continues to affect more than 46 million U.S. adults, a number that’s projected to increase to 67 million adults by 2030. It is a misconception that all arthritis is the same. This has led people to experiment with different treatments that have little effect on their arthritis symptoms. Since each type of arthritis is different, each type may require an altered approach to treatment. That means it is vital to obtain a diagnosis for anyone who has arthritis. With the proper diagnosis, it becomes easier to figure out what is causing the pain. Then, you can ensure that you’re taking the right steps to alleviate the pain and get on with your life.
