What Is Joint Inflammation?


Inflammation is a common bodily reaction that our immune system uses as a response to injury or other inflammation. When due to an injury, inflammation is actually an important aspect of our natural healing process. The problems arise in scenarios where  existing inflammation leads to even more inflammation. In these cases, arthritis is typically the result.


Arthritis is the most joint inflammation that people experience. Two types that are prevalent are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Many athlete often experience osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear in the joints due to overuse, injury or good ole aging.


If you play tennis, tennis elbow is a common term used to describe the osteoarthritic effects felt from overuse.


Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, is where one’s own immune system is malfunctioning, thus causing joint inflammation.
