Every year on October 12, there is a campaign that allows individuals to share their stories and facts about arthritis. The main goal of the campaign is to create global awareness among people about all aspects of arthritis.
This campaign highlights the significance of early diagnosis to get the right treatment as early as possible.
What is arthritis?
Arthritis refers to an inflammation of one or more joint areas, such as the shoulder, knee, thumb, ankle, hip, wrist, elbow, etc. Over a prolonged period, this inflammation leads to joint damage.
There are more than 100 types of arthritis. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most common type among them.
Patients with arthritis may experience symptoms such as joint pain, swelling, stiﬀness, a limited range of motion, a grating sensation, and tenderness.
The severity of this condition can vary from mild to severe depending on the individual. Nowadays, people of any age get arthritis. However, females are more prone to develop the condition. The Global RA Network 2021 estimated that approximately more than 350 million individuals have arthritis across the world.
Usually, physicians recommend medications, physical therapy, and steroid injections to treat arthritis conditions. In case all these options do not work, surgery might be the last resort.
