Arthritis and Osteoporosis

Arthritis and Osteoporosis
What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a general term for a condition that affects the joints and surrounding tissue. These joints are places in the body where bones come together. For example, knees’ fingers, toes, wrists and hips.

Symptoms of Arthritis can include joint pain, stiffness, tenderness and inflammation in and around the joints. Other symptoms can include muscle weakness/wastage and restricted movement of the affected joint.

Most people who suffer with arthritis will use pain management strategies at some point during their life.


What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a condition that affects the person bones. It causes the bones to become weak and fragile. As a result the person has a greater chance of suffering a break or fracture.

When we are all children our bones grew and repaired quickly, but as we get older this natural ‘repair’ process slows down. From the age of 35, we gradually lose bone density. The is a normal part of ageing, however some people have an increase risk of developing osteoporosis which can increase the risk of fractures.

There are no symptoms of osteoporosis until someone experiences a fracture. Osteoporosis is then diagnoses by health professionals after conducting tests to check the persons bone density.

The most common injuries that a person with osteoporosis suffers are wrist and hip fractures. The person can also suffer with fractures of the spinal bones, which are medically referred to as vertebrae’s.
