You’re Never Too Young For Joint Pain

Arthritis has always been associated with older people, but now more and more young people are being diagnosed with this condition. Arthritis is the stiffness and inflammation or swelling of the joints. You can feel pain or tenderness in your shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees, ankles, and other parts of your body. It becomes a problem when it limits your ability to walk or the constant pain limits movement in those parts of the body.

 

Types of Arthritis

Osteoarthritis

This is the most common type of arthritis. This happens when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears down over time. It’s more common in the hands, knees, hips, and spine. This type of arthritis worsens as you get older and old injuries from when you were younger can have an effect.
