Arthritis—Arthritis is a general term for any disorder that affects the joints. Common symptoms include joint pain and inflammation, reduced mobility, and stiffness of the affected joint.
Back Pain—There are many possible sources for back pain, which can seriously affect your day-to-day life. Common causes of back pain include arthritis, accident/injuries to the spine, bad posture, and pulled muscles or ligaments.
Bursitis—When the bursae (sacs of synovial fluid that lubricate the joints and muscles moving over the bone) become inflamed, it can often result in pain, reduced mobility, and stiff muscles. Bursitis is usually caused by repetitive movements, though it can also be triggered by injury and inflammatory disorders like arthritis.
Gout—This type of inflammatory arthritis is caused by high levels of uric acid in the bloodstream. This condition often manifests as a red, swollen joint, usually near the toe, though it can appear in other joints located in the heel, wrist, fingers, and knee.
Osteoarthritis—This specific type of arthritis is the result of the degeneration or breakdown of the joint cartilage and the corresponding bone. Common symptoms are joint pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility. Osteoarthritis can often affect the hip or knee.
Psoriatic Arthritis—This type of arthritis occurs in patients with psoriasis, resulting in symptoms such as: sausage-like swelling of fingers and toes, red, swollen joints, and changes to the nails.
Rheumatoid Arthritis—Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that predominantly affects the joints, resulting in swollen, stiff, and painful joints. Other parts of the body may also be affected, which can cause inflammation around the heart and lungs.
