Many of the conditions today are as a result of inflammation and, of course, high on the list is arthritis with one in five of us having to live with this condition.

What are the causes of arthritis?

As there are so many different types of arthritis, there is no one cause but the following factors may be important.
  • Genetics – arthritis can sometimes run in families, especially rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis of the fingers.
  • Gender – some types of arthritis are more commonly found in women and others in men.
  • Age – osteoarthritis is usually a problem in later life whereas other types of arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis commonly start in young adults.
  • Injury - damage to a joint for example a broken bone or a sports injury can cause osteoarthritis later in life.
  • Infections - certain viral and other infections can trigger some types of arthritis.
  • Lifestyle - osteoarthritis is more common in the overweight and alcohol can trigger gout. Smoking is more common in people who develop rheumatoid arthritis


Whether scar tissue or arthritis is causing a problem in your life, changing to a healthier diet, sensible exercise, losing any excess weight and using natural solutions will all help to reduce your pain and inflammation.
