different conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system and in some cases
other tissues and organs the term inflammatory arthritis refers to any of
these arthritic conditions where there is localized joint inflammation with any
other type of inflammation in the tissues or organ systems there are
several different type of inflammatory arthritis that are more commonly
diagnosed than others these include psoriatic arthritis
rheumatoid arthritis reactive arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis arthritis all
of these conditions result in painful swelling inflammation and redness in the
joint area that results in disability poor functional use of the joint and
reduced range of motion researchers from the Arthritis Research Campaign at the
University of Manchester are interested in identifying why the quality of life
of a significant number of patients who suffer from arthritis is rated so poorly
in a health-related questionnaire patients who suffer from inflammatory
arthritis reported levels of pain that was rated worse than death by members of
the general population rheumatoid arthritis was the most common form of
the condition which affect the questionnaire participants according to
research results from the UK within ten years after diagnosis of rheumatoid
arthritis at least 50% of the sufferers were unable to hold down a full-time job
the researchers believe that the quality of life evaluations may not reflect the
current treatments available to relieve pain and that more research is required
those who suffer from psoriatic arthritis have joint inflammation
concurrent with another skin disease psoriasis interestingly not all who have
psoriasis will go on to develop psoriatic arthritis but all who have
psoriatic arthritis will eventually suffer from psoriasis the joints that
are more commonly involved include the hips knees and those close to the tips
of the fingers and toes the doctor will make a diagnosis based on symptoms using
x-ray blood tests and other diagnostic imaging studies to rule out
reasons for the inflammatory response in the body treatment includes
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and the use of some of the
new disease modifying medications now available on the market individuals who
suffer from reactive arthritis also called writer syndrome will experience
inflammation in the joints and tendons attachments which can be related to an
infection the inflammation and joint pain will be in response to an infection
in the genitor nari tract or gastrointestinal tract the patient
experiences tendon inflammation skin rashes and red eye the diagnosis is
often made by the symptoms and the physician will look for an underlying
infection as the cause treatment will be launched at the underlying infection to
stop the cascading effect as well as to decrease the inflammation and pain in
the joints with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
ankylosing spondylitis is another type of inflammatory arthritis and is
characterized by inflammation of the spine and large joints that result in
stiffness and pain the patient will experience joint pain and back stiffness
the diagnosis will be based on symptoms and imaging studies such as x-ray and
MRI treatment will be based on both the relief of pain using non-steroidal
anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or the administration of
methotrexate further treatment with tumor necrosis factor can also be
effective for ankylosing SPN delighteth rheumatoid arthritis also called
rheumatoid disease because of the systemic response in the body to the
inflammatory process is another of the inflammatory arthritic conditions
diagnosis is made through blood tests genetic testing and imaging tests
treatment is aimed at reducing the symptoms of pain swelling and
inflammation as well as reducing the progression of the disease
those who suffer from one of the many different types of inflammatory
arthritic conditions should find hope in the continuing research that is
investigating both holistic and pharmaceutical approaches to reducing
