What Are the Common Types of Arthritis?

Arthritis encompasses two primary types: osteoarthritis, characterized by gradual wear and tear of the joints, and rheumatoid arthritis, an inflammatory condition resulting from immune system dysfunction. Additionally, gout arises from crystal accumulation within the joints and represents another prevalent form of arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis, lupus, and septic arthritis are among the various other types encountered.


Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease or degenerative arthritis, stands as the most prevalent chronic joint ailment. While it often arises from joint overuse, aging is the primary factor. It can also stem from sports-related injuries or obesity, particularly burdening weight-bearing joints. Hand osteoarthritis is commonly hereditary and frequently afflicts middle-aged women. The condition primarily affects weight-bearing joints like knees, hips, feet, and the spine, gradually developing over months or years. Unlike some other forms of arthritis, osteoarthritis typically doesn’t cause general malaise or fatigue.

In osteoarthritis, the gradual breakdown of cartilage occurs. Cartilage acts as a lubricating cushion on bone ends. With sustained damage, cartilage loses its effectiveness, resulting in pain and, sometimes, a grating sound during joint movement. Painful spurs or bumps may form on bone ends, especially in the fingers and feet. Though not a primary symptom, joint lining inflammation can occur in response to cartilage breakdown.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis vary based on the affected joint(s) and may include:

– Deep, aching pain
– Difficulty with daily tasks like dressing or hair combing
– Grip weakness
– Limited joint movement or stiffness
– Warmth or swelling in the joint
– Morning stiffness lasting less than an hour
– Pain during movement
– Stiffness after rest
– Joint swelling
– Decreased joint motion

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis stands as the most prevalent form of inflammatory arthritis, affecting approximately 75% of women among those impacted. In fact, 1% to 3% of women are at risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis during their lifetime.

This autoimmune disease involves the immune system attacking the body’s own tissues, primarily targeting the joints. Prolonged inflammation can lead to significant joint damage and deformities. Around one in five individuals with rheumatoid arthritis may develop skin lumps known as rheumatoid nodules, often forming over pressure points like knuckles, elbows, or heels.

Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis can manifest gradually or suddenly and tend to be more severe compared to osteoarthritis. They commonly include pain, fatigue, loss of appetite, and stiffness.

In rheumatoid arthritis, pain, stiffness, and swelling can affect various joints, including the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders, knees, ankles, feet, jaw, and neck. Typically, the involvement of joints follows a symmetrical pattern, meaning if one side is affected, the corresponding joint on the opposite side is also inflamed. As the condition progresses, more joints may become involved, leading to persistent swelling and interference with daily activities such as gripping objects, driving, working, and walking.

Comprehensive Evaluation and Diagnosis

At Epione Spine & Pain Care Centre, we initiate your arthritis care journey with a thorough evaluation to gauge its impact on your daily life. This involves a comprehensive assessment, including a detailed medical history, physical examination, and diagnostic tests. By delving into the root causes of your arthritis, we tailor a personalized treatment plan aimed at minimizing pain and enhancing joint function.

Advanced Arthritis Treatment in Trivandrum:

We offer an array of advanced arthritis treatments in Trivandrum to effectively manage symptoms:

– MEDICATIONS: Tailored medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), and biologic agents are prescribed based on arthritis type and severity to alleviate pain and inflammation.

– JOINT INJECTIONS: Potent anti-inflammatory injections or ozone gas injections target relief by reducing inflammation and lubricating joints, thus enhancing mobility and function.

REGENERATIVE THERAPIES: Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and stem cell injections offer promising alternatives for tissue repair and regeneration, potentially slowing arthritis progression and improving joint health.

– PHYSICAL THERAPIES: Customized exercise programs aim to strengthen muscles, enhance flexibility, and stabilize joints, thereby alleviating pain and enhancing overall function.

– MINIMALLY INVASIVE PROCEDURES: In cases where conservative treatments fall short, minimally invasive procedures like radiofrequency ablation (RFA) may be recommended to restore joint function and alleviate pain.

At Epione, we prioritize patient empowerment in arthritis management. Beyond medical interventions, we offer education, support, and resources to facilitate informed decision-making regarding your health.
