Understanding Arthritis and Effective Treatments at BOD Medical

Arthritis, a broad term encompassing over 100 diseases characterized by joint inflammation, impacts millions worldwide, causing pain, stiffness, and limited movement. Despite its prevalence, arthritis is often misunderstood, and its management can be challenging. This blog post delves into the causes of arthritis, highlighting the effective treatments offered at BOD Medical, known for its expert care and innovative approaches.

Causes of Arthritis

Arthritis arises from the inflammation of joints and connective tissues, affecting individuals across all age groups, though it's more common in women. The condition can manifest in various forms, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and lupus, each with distinct causes and symptoms.


This is the most common form of arthritis, resulting from the wear and tear of cartilage in joints, often exacerbated by aging, injury, or obesity.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

An autoimmune disorder where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks its own joints, leading to inflammation and joint damage.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Associated with psoriasis, this type of arthritis can affect joints and skin, causing inflammation and joint damage.


A systemic autoimmune disease that can affect various organs, including the joints, leading to inflammation and arthritis-like symptoms.
