Arthritis in Belleville

Chiropractor Belleville NJ Michael Chillemi X Ray

Just because you are getting older doesn’t mean that you automatically will suffer from arthritis. Anyone can develop arthritis at any point in their lives and many other factors besides old age contributes to it, such as:

  • Family history of arthritis
  • Being a woman
  • Being overweight
  • Catching certain bacteria or viral infections
  • Having bone spurs
  • Having a physically demanding job
  • Having previous injuries

There are many types of arthritis and among the most prevalent are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis happens when the cartilage that protects your joints diminishes over time. This can happen as a result of old age; however, it can also be the result of an injury.  Rheumatoid arthritis on the other hand, is caused by an autoimmune disease in which your body breaks down the protecting tissues and bones, resulting in excruciating pain and inflammation. Another thing that contributes to arthritis is having a gout. A gout occurs when you have excessive accumulation of uric acid in your body, which results in sharp crystal deposits forming in your joints and tendons. While this condition is most frequently associated with men, it can also affect women.

When people think of a treatment for their arthritis, they most likely think of surgery; however, that should only be the very last resort.
