Common causes of Arthritis

Arthritis is a chronic condition characterised by inflammation and stiffness in the joints, which can result in pain, swelling, and difficulty with movement.

  • Age: As we age, our joints become more prone to wear and tear, making us more susceptible to arthritis.
  • Genetics: Some forms of arthritis have a genetic component, meaning it can run in families.
  • Previous joint injuries or infections: Injuries or infections in the joints can increase the risk of developing arthritis.
  • Autoimmune disorders: Certain autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, can cause inflammation and damage to the joints.
  • Obesity: Carrying excess weight puts added stress on joints, increasing the likelihood of developing arthritis.
  • Occupation or sports activities: Jobs or sports that involve repetitive joint movements or high impact on joints can lead to arthritis.
  • Gender: Certain types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, are more common in women than men.
