Quite naturally you are most interested in the type of arthritis that affects you.

There are specific phases of arthritis as well as different types.

Firstly we need to identify which of the  two main types of arthritis you may have.

  1. Osteoarthritis
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis is the most common of all.

Meaning of osteo-arthritis.

More millions of people suffer from osteoarthritis than any other kind. The word arthritis means inflammation of the joint. The word “osteo” comes from the Greek word “osteo”, meaning bone. Compounded then osteo-arthritis can be defined as inflammation of the bony part of the joint.

Your joints have many parts – membranes, cartilage, oil sacs, bones etc. Osteo-arthritis afflicts mainly the bone section so derives its name.

Osteo-arthritis is known as a “wear and tear disease”. Over activity in work or exercise can cause wearing out of the cushion of cartilage at the end of a bone. (Sometimes doctors also refer to “osteo” under the names of degenerative or hypertrophic arthritis.)

A significant amount of proof exists that osteo-arthritis does NOT come from ageing.

In the journal of the American Medical Association Dr EF Rosenberg reports the following points.

  1. Osteo-arthritis of the fingers involves only the terminal joints. As the joints of the entire finger are used, why aren’t the other joints affected?
  2. Only one hip may become afflicted with osteo-arthritis. Yet through the years, both hips received the same amount of use.
  3. Sedentary workers are often victims of osteo-arthritis – without any mechanical or physical wear on their skeletal structure.

Where does osteo-arthritis generally strike?

Among men the most common joints affected are the knees, the fingers, hands, then the knees and spine. In other words the parts of the body, which do the work, feel it first. If you suffer from this ailment you have plenty of company. In the USA alone more than 70 % of the population contracts some form of the disease by the time they reach fifty-five years of age.

Osteo-arthritis – as old as the Hills!

This disease began more than 100,000,000 years ago. Fossils of dinosaurs in museums today show that before these animals died, their joints wore out. Their bones rubbed against each other, and frayed in an arthritic manner.

During the time of the Egyptians, Greeks and Romans, osteoarthritis flourished. In prehistoric and Roman times, just like today every animal and human had one dietary fault in common. They all drank too much water with their meals. We will discuss in another blog how improper water drinking habits lead to arthritis.
