What are the causes of Arthritis?
Arthritis may be caused by:
- wear and tear of a joint from overuse
- age (OA is most common in adults over age 50)
- autoimmune disorders
- genes or family history
- muscle weakness
The type of arthritis determines the cause. Osteoarthritis develops as a result of joint wear and tear over time or from overuse. Rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and scleroderma are diseases caused by the body’s immune system attacking its own tissues. Gout is caused by crystal buildup in the joints. Some types of arthritis can be traced back to genes. Ankylosing spondylitis is more common in people who have the genetic marker HLA-B27. The cause of some other types of arthritis is unknown.
