What is arthritis?Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. It can affect one joint or multiple joints. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, with different causes and treatment methods. Two of the most common types are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).The symptoms of arthritis usually develop over time, but they may also appear suddenly. Arthritis is most commonly seen in adults over the age of 65, but it can also develop in children, teens, and younger adults. Arthritis is more common in women than men and in people who are overweight.What are the symptoms of arthritis?Joint pain, stiffness, and swelling are the most common symptoms of arthritis. Your range of motion may also decrease, and you may experience redness of the skin around the joint. Many people with arthritis notice their symptoms are worse in the morning.In the case of RA, you may feel tired or experience a loss of appetite due to the inflammation the immune system’s activity causes. You may also become anemic — meaning your red blood cell count decreases — or have a slight fever. Severe RA can cause joint deformity if left untreated.HEALTHLINE RESOURCETRANSFORM: Health Equity71% of people agree that underrepresented communities in the US face greater hardships in accessing healthcare. Learn how they’ve been affected, and how you can help, today.What causes arthritis?Cartilage is a firm but flexible connective tissue in your joints. It protects the joints by absorbing the pressure and shock created when you move and put stress on them. A reduction in the normal amount of this cartilage tissue cause some forms of arthritis.Normal wear and tear causes OA, one of the most common forms of arthritis. An infection or injury to the joints can exacerbate this natural breakdown of cartilage tissue. Your risk of developing OA may be higher if you have a family history of the disease.Another common form of arthritis, RA, is an autoimmune disorder. It occurs when your body’s immune system attacks the tissues of the body. These attacks affect the synovium, a soft tissue in your joints that produces a fluid that nourishes the cartilage and lubricates the joints.RA is a disease of the synovium that will invade and destroy a joint. It can eventually lead to the destruction of both bone and cartilage inside the joint.The exact cause of the immune system’s attacks is unknown. But scientists have discovered genetic markers that increase your risk of developing RA fivefold.How is arthritis diagnosed?Seeing your primary care physician is a good first step if you’re unsure who to see for an arthritis diagnosis. They will perform a physical exam to check for fluid around the joints, warm or red joints, and limited range of motion in the joints. Your doctor can refer you to a specialist if needed.If you’re experiencing severe symptoms, you may choose to schedule an appointment with a rheumatologist first. This may lead to a faster diagnosis and treatment.Extracting and analyzing inflammation levels in your blood and joint fluids can help your doctor determine what kind of arthritis you have. Blood tests that check for specific types of antibodies like anti-CCP (anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide), RF (rheumatoid factor), and ANA (antinuclear antibody) are also common diagnostic tests.Doctors commonly use imaging scans such as X-ray, MRI, and CT scans to produce an image of your bones and cartilage. This is so they can rule out other causes of your symptoms, such as bone spurs.

Dr Hadzic demonstrates an ultrasound-guided injection of methylprednisolone in a patient with acute Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (inflammation). Anesthesiologists are increasingly more often asked to help our orthopedic surgery colleagues, podiatrists and their patients with ultrasound-guided injections. In this example, Dr Hadzic administers an intra-sheath injection of Methylprednisolone in a patient with posterior tibialis inflammation. This can be curative in some patients, but it is sometimes considered controversial due to the risk of needle-tendon injury and tendon rupture. However, ultrasound-guided injection avoids the risk of tendon injury and who is better suited than regional anesthesiologists with their ultrasound, sono-anatomy and hand-eye coordination skills? Early treatment of this condition may prevent the development of adult acquired flatfoot syndrome (deformity).🖥 Learn more about Ultrasound of the Musculoskeletal System: https://bit.ly/3B2s5h2🖥 Test drive NYSORA’s Compendium of Regional Anesthesia: https://bit.ly/3gsMYdc📱 Download the app and try out our free courses today!iOS: https://apple.co/2WUqoi7Android: bit.ly/NYSORAMAppWhere else to find us:Web- http://www.nysora.com Twitter- http://www.twitter.com/nysoraInstagram- http://www.instagram.com/nysora_commu…Facebook- http://www.facebook.com/nysoraTikTok- https://www.tiktok.com/@nysora_community———————————————————#nysora #regionalanesthesia #anesthesia
