Two Kinds of Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis comes earlier in life, usually before 45 and deforms the bones and joints through inflammation caused by items found in the bloodstream. Osteoarthritis comes later in life, usually after 45. This is the common arthritis that you normally hear about and stems from natural life. Life has activity and this can take a toll on the joints causing arthritis. Both forms of arthritis cause inflammation of the joints and tendons which can cause people to suffer from severe pain.
Spinal osteoarthritis can also be diagnosed in the form of Osteophytes, which can cause injury with discs, and be a part of degenerative disc disease.
