Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
it is a Type of Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorder,
Autoimmune means- our immune System mistakenly Attack our Normal immune Response
Attack own Natural Antibody Attack itself, attacks and damages them, resulting in inflammation and pain. can affect your joints. most affects the distal joints symmetrically, for example, the hands, wrists, and knees.
STAGES OF RHEUMATIC ARTHRITIS-
EARLY STAGE- Stage I- (PRE-Clinical)- it is affect first ‘’SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE’’
Because Synovial Membrane is present outside the Joint
As you can seen in above image
Normally Synovial Membrane Produce ‘’SYNOVIAL FLUID’’
Synovial fluid has three functions in Joint ,
1) which are to lubricate the articular cartilage at the ends of the bones in this Fluid Joint move freely
2) Supply nutrients to the articular cartilage,
3) Protection provide-thin layer of protective cartilage in the joints.
When affect Synovial membrane characterized by synovitis, or an inflammation of the synovial membrane,
Produce swelling of involved joints
pain upon motion.
During this stage, cell count in synovial fluid as immune cells migrate to the site of inflammation.
X-RAY- SHOWS- swelling of soft tissues
There is No show Joint Destruction because in EARLY STAGE
SYMPTOMS OF EARLY STAGE- Swelling in affect joint
• Joint Pain.
• Stiffness in Joint
Stage-ll (Moderate Stage)-(SYNOVITIS)- In the moderate stage of RA, the inflammation of the synovial tissue becomes more spread area and severe
Cartilage damage because of Synovial Membrane inflammation
Narrowing in Joint
• Loss of mobility of Joint
• decreased joint motion
Stage 3rd (Destruction)-it is severe RA. Inflammation in the synovial membrane
‘’formation of pannus in the synovium’’ as you can seen in below image
Destroy not only the cartilage as well as Joints
SYMPTOMS- increased pain
• Increase swelling
• Decrease in mobility of Joint
• Physical deformities of the joint start to develop (SWAN NECK DEFORMITY IN HANDS)
Stage 4: In the end stage of RA, or TERMINAL STAGE
the inflammatory process Stops
Joints stop functioning altogether.
fusing of bone together results in ceased joint function.
formation of subcutaneous nodules.3
ITIS SUFFIX IT MEANS INFLAMMATION
ARTHOS- means Joint
It is- means inflammation
So Arthritis means- inflammation of Joints, inflammation one or more joints
INFLAMMATION- click to know inflammation
Causes of ARTHRITIS- Cause of Arthritis depend upon Particular form or type of Arthritis,
ARTHRITIS-click to know Arthritis
ALL DISEASE SUCH IN ARTHRITIS, OSEOARTHRITIS, RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS, THAT ARE MAIN CAUSE INFLAMMATION
SO FIRSTLY TO REDUCE THE RISK OF THESES DISEASE OR NATURAL TREATMENT OF THAT DISEASE ARE BELOW
Heat treatments, such as packs or warm baths, to sooth stiff joints and tired...
