How to spot different types of Arthritis by - Southland
Arthritis located in Fallbrook California
Arthritis is a medical condition involving different joints of the body. It may run in families or it may be
due to an infection. The joints involved may be small like, the joints of the fingers and wrist, or they may
be large like, the hip and knee joints. The involved area becomes swollen, painful on touch and hard to
move due to stiffness of the muscles surrounding the joints. This condition can get worse with time and
it is, therefore, best to consult a Temecula arthritis doctor immediately.
We can divide arthritis into subcategories based on a variety of methods. The first two categories are:
This kind of arthritis occurs suddenly and the patient has experienced no prior symptoms. It can show up
as a swollen knee, which hurts more when you try to get up after sitting for a long while. It can also
occur after a possible infection. The important thing is to know the difference between a sore joint and
an arthritic joint and for this you should consult with a Temecula arthritis doctor.

The other type of general division includes:
This kind of arthritis occurs after a primary infection. The infection may not have been in the joint itself,
but the bacteria involved in an infection at some other site of the body may have travelled through the
blood to the joint in question. The primary infection may be a sore throat or a kidney infection. The
most common type of infectious arthritis is Rheumatoid arthritis. A Temecula arthritis doctor should be
informed of any previous episodes of streptococcus sore throat, as this causes Rheumatoid arthritis in
both adults and children.

acid starts to accumulate in the muscles surrounding the joints and within the joints themselves. This
leads to stiffness of the joints of the feet, especially the big toe in the morning. Other than that, the
patient may experience muscle pain around the joints. As the amount of crystals increase in and around
the joint, the swelling and tenderness increase with it. This is particularly dangerous for the joints, if
allowed to go on unchecked. The ha ds a d fi gers i ol ed de elop u p appeara es, together
