Most of us think arthritis is a degenerative disease that only affects the elderly. In fact, all age groups can suffer from arthritis.

Arthritis is caused by several things, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, Reiter’s syndrome, septic arthritis, and gouty arthritis. In addition, there are several other factors that can trigger arthritis, namely age, gender, history of past diseases (gout, infections, etc.), history of joint injuries, and obesity.

If a person has arthritis, it will generally show symptoms, such as pain and stiffness in the joints, swelling in the joints, limited motion of the joints, redness and feeling warm in the joints, reduced size of the muscles around the joints, and decreased muscle strength around the joints.

In addition, there are other symptoms that are in line with the underlying causes, including fever (if caused by infection), fatigue and weakness, a friction sound in the joint, additional spurs or bone around the joint, lumps appearing in the joints, and difficulty to move the body parts affected by arthritis.

To prevent arthritis, you can do the following.

  1. Taking drugs to treat inflammation
  2. Take painkillers
  3. Perform physiotherapy to strengthen the muscles around the joints and improve mobility.
  4. Performing surgery.
