Different Aspects of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease that can affect the joints of any part of the body except the lower back. Some common areas that get affected from it are hands, wrists and knees. In this problem, the immune system, which is also the defense system of the body, attacks itself. It causes the lining of the joints to swell out. The symptom of inflammation spreads to the surrounding tissues and other areas of the body. Some of these portions are skin, eyes, lungs and nerves.
The occurrence of this disease in the spine causes a discomfort in the neck, back and legs areas. In the advance stages, there may arise degeneration within the spine and compression from the spinal cord and the spine nerve roots. The symptoms that occur here are more like the signs of osteoarthritis, a problem of the degenerative joint disease.
