Rheumatoid Arthritis

Arthrosis and rheumatism

The World Health Organisation (WHO) defines the concept of rheumatism as all conditions (about 450 different ones) which are manifested in the musculoskeletal system and which are associated with pain and limited movability. All these conditions are almost always chronic and are usually not curable. They are divided into four main groups:

- Inflammatory rheumatic diseases, i.e. arthritis
- Degenerative changes in the joints, i.e. arthrosis
- Rheumatism of the soft tissue, i.e. fibromyalgia
- Conditions of the metabolism which affect the joints, i.e. gout

Osteoarthritis

What is osteoarthritis?

The word arthritis comes from the Greek "Arthro-" which means joint, and,-ose "or" osis "meaning illness, disease. Here we are talking about lesions in one or more joints that do not always begin with cartilage damage and are not primarily induced by inflammation. There are many factors that cause or favor damaging of the cartilage. In the beginning it often encompasses incorrect burdening of a particular joint or its overload. However, congenital defects and accidents can also lead to premature wear-out of the cartilage. Being as the process, once started, without treatment continually progresses, we have as a consequence total diminishing of the cartilage layer and deformation of the bone situated beneath that cartilage, as well as changes to the mucosa which the joint is lined with.
