Dr. LeDoux Will Explain How Arthritis Is Affecting You

The key to battling arthritis is understanding what it is and how it affects you. The body includes many joints where the bones meet and move, such as your ankles, knees, hips, back, knuckles, shoulders, and neck. The joints include soft tissues to provide cushioning and protection that prevent bone-on-bone friction. Some joints also have means for lubrication and are held together with ligaments and tendons. When the tissues, ligaments, and tendons break down, the bones start to rub together, causing pain and swelling.

Arthritis Comes in Different Forms

Arthritis is a general term used to describe pain, inflammation, and redness in joints, but there are different causes and associated health conditions that denote the specific type of arthritis a patient has. The first step is determining what that is.


This is the most common form of arthritis resulting from general wear and tear from athletics or aging.

Ankylosing Spondylitis

This diagnosis is specific to arthritis of the back and generally occurs in the lower part.

Juvenile Arthritis

JA is an immune system disorder that attacks the tissues in the joints. It’s usually in kids 16 and under.


High uric acid levels in the body can lead to gout, which causes hard crystals to form on joints, often in the big toe.

Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disorder that can also lead to arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

The synovial membranes make fluid that lubricates joints. Rheumatoid arthritis targets these membranes.
