What is Arthritis?

Arthritis is a common condition that affects 1 in 6 Australians. The term “arthritis” is actually more of an umbrella term for over 100 medical conditions that affect the musculoskeletal system. Specifically, arthritis affects joints where 2 or more bones meet together. The condition causes damage to the joints which usually results in stiffness, tenderness and pain in the affected area.

Anyone can experience arthritis, including children and young people. Similarly to dementia, many people incorrectly believe that arthritis is just part of getting older. Actually, 2 out of 3 people suffering with arthritis are between 15 and 60 years old and can affect anyone from any background.

If you have symptoms of arthritis, you should consult your doctor. You should receive an examination of your joints and you could receive an x-ray depending on the severity and your situation. It can take a little while to diagnose the specific type of arthritis that you may have and you could be referred to a rheumatologist.
