Frequently Asked Questions for s in

Some individuals with arthritis report worsening symptoms during cold, damp weather. However, scientific evidence linking weather changes to arthritis flare-ups is limited. Focusing on overall disease management strategies is important rather than relying solely on weather-related factors.

Yes, certain types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, have a genetic component. A family history of these conditions can increase the risk of developing arthritis. However, lifestyle choices and environmental factors also affect disease development.

Arthritis cannot spread from one joint to another. However, early diagnosis and immediate treatment are crucial to stop potential damage to the affected joints. Regular exercise, maintaining a healthy weight, protecting joints from injury, and following prescribed medication regimens can help manage symptoms and slow disease progression.

People with arthritis, especially those on immunosuppressive drugs, may be more likely to experience flu-related problems. Individuals with arthritis must get vaccinated against the flu yearly and practice good hygiene to prevent infection.

Obesity increases your risk of getting arthritis, especially osteoarthritis. The additional weight increases strain on the joints, resulting in wear and tear over time.

Yes, arthritis is a chronic condition that lasts a lifetime. However, with appropriate treatment and lifestyle modifications, the symptoms of arthritis can be managed, and individuals can maintain a good quality of life.

Arthritis is not completely curable. But with proper care, its symptoms can be managed effectively. The goal of arthritis treatment is to control pain, prevent further damage, reduce inflammation, and improve overall joint function and mobility.

While arthritis is a chronic condition that cannot be completely cured, effective treatment can help manage symptoms and slow down disease progression. With proper management, many individuals with arthritis can lead active and fulfilling lives.

When it comes to keeping healthy bones, vitamin D is essential. It also helps in reducing joint stiffness in arthritis. Before consuming supplements, you should speak with your doctor because they may interfere with your prescription drugs and cause unwanted side effects.

The causes of arthritis can vary depending on the type of arthritis. Some types of arthritis are caused by joint wear and tear (osteoarthritis). In contrast, others are due to autoimmune conditions in which the body’s immune system attacks its joints mistakenly (rheumatoid arthritis). Infections, trauma, and certain genetic factors can also contribute to the development of arthritis.

Some medications used to treat arthritis can have side effects. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) may cause some people stomach ulcers or kidney problems. Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) and biological agents used to treat rheumatoid arthritis may weaken the immune system and increase the risk of infections.

The common symptoms of arthritis include swelling, stiffness, joint pain, and difficulty moving the affected joints. Some individuals may also experience fatigue, muscle weakness, and reduced motion in the affected joints.

Arthritis is typically diagnosed through the evaluation of medical history, diagnostic tests, and physical examination. The tests involve blood tests to check for markers of inflammation and specific antibodies, imaging tests such as X-rays or MRI scans to visualise joint damage, and joint fluid analysis to rule out other causes of joint pain.

There are several treatment options available for arthritis. These include medication to manage pain and inflammation, physical therapy to improve joint strength and flexibility, lifestyle modifications like workout and weight management, assistive devices to support joints, and, in some cases, surgery to repair or replace damaged joints.

Rheumatologists are the medical specialists who diagnose and treat arthritis. They have expertise in managing conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system, including arthritis. Orthopaedic surgeons may also be involved in the surgical treatment of arthritis.
