Arthritis is one of the most common inflammatory conditions today and although it was once considered to be a disease that affects the older generation, it’s becoming more and more prevalent in children and young adults.
The uncomfortable and very painful side effects include swelling and stiffening of the joints which can range from mild to very severe, even leading to high levels of disability that make it hard to perform your daily activities and impair the overall quality of your life.
The main cause of arthritis is chronic inflammation which can sometimes be hard to pinpoint and find its root cause. That’s why even experts can’t completely agree on the exact causes of arthritis. Still, there are some factors that are known to be high contributors to chronic inflammation and although there are some that are impossible to control, others can be regulated by making strong lifestyle changes.
