An Introduction to Arthritis

Arthritis refers to an inflammation of the joints. There are over 100 types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Many people may think of arthritis as a disease of the elderly, but this is not true. While it is more common among older adults, arthritis can also develop in children, youth, and younger adults.

Arthritis Is among the Top 5 Causes of Disability in Singapore

Arthritis is the most common joint disease in the world. Individuals with arthritis often experience joint pain or stiffness, a limited range of movement, and swelling and redness. The most commonly affected joints are in the hands, spine, knees and hips.

Managing Arthritis at Home

While no cure is available for arthritis currently, there are several things we can do to manage its symptoms and reduce the impact it has on our lives.

Besides medication and surgery, maintaining a healthy weight, adopting a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help to reduce inflammation and keep joints flexible. A physiotherapist can advise you on the exercises that are most suited for you to keep fit and healthy while reducing the stress on your joints.
