What is arthritis in the hands? 

Arthritis in the hands is a chronic condition that affects the joints of the fingers, wrist, and base of the thumb. It is characterized by inflammation of the joints and can cause pain, stiffness, swelling, deformity, and difficulty moving the hands. 

Below are some symptoms that you may have arthritis in your hands: 

Symptoms differ slightly depending on the type of arthritis. These differences can help the doctor determine the correct underlying cause of hand arthritis symptoms. 

• Pain with movement or when you are at rest accompanied by inflammation of the joint 

• Deformity and stiffness in the joint 

• Weakness and loss of muscle mass 

We continue with what causes arthritis? 

Arthritis in the hands can have different causes, including. genetic factors or, failing that, aging. Previous injuries to the fingers or hand. These factors can trigger an inflammatory response in the joints, leading to cartilage degradation and the formation of osteophytes, also known as "bone spurs." 

Finally, what to do to control arthritis? 

Although arthritis cannot be avoided, people can monitor their joints for signs of the disease as they age. 

Stay active: Regularly exercising your hands can help keep your joints working longer. Hand exercises can also reduce pain and stiffness if the person already has arthritis. 

Reduce sugar intake: Excessive consumption of processed sugar causes the body to release pro-inflammatory proteins called cytokines. Cytokine levels are already high when you have inflammatory arthritis; Chronic inflammation is what causes joint pain, swelling, and stiffness. 

Do not smoke: Smoking increases the risk of infections, alters innate defense mechanisms, and also increases radiological joint damage.
