Inflammatory rheumatoid arthritis - Definition



Definition


Rheumatoid arthritis is a generic term used in common parlance to define any kind of chronic joint pain. It is qualified as inflammatory if one or more joints are found to be inflamed, which is often a symptom of chronic inflammatory disease. A opposed to degenerative osteoarthritis forms, such as osteoarthritis, inflammatory rheumatoid arthritis is not caused by aging, and can occur at any age. The different forms include polyarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and forms principally affecting children: juvenile idiopathic arthritis or polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Treatment methods are typically based on classic analgesic or anti-inflammatory drugs, local corticosteroid injections in cases of exacerbated pain due to flare-ups, physiotherapy, and specific treatments designated for each different type of inflammatory rheumatoid arthritis.
