Rheumatoid arthritis is a term you hear thrown around all the time and people often think, I have rheumatoid arthritis when they don't actually know what it means yet. Rheumatoid arthritis, by definition is an autoimmune disease. That means your immune system is attacking
the joints all over, so rheumatoid arthritis isn't when your hands hurt or when your knee is tight, it's when you have a systemic, full-body issue where your immune system is attacking the lining of the joints. This causes inflammation, it can cause pain in the joint because of the inflammation, it can cause your fingers to start to bend outwards because the joint is deteriorating and therefore that's a common thing we see
with rheumatoid arthritis. Sometimes the joint gets really hot because of that inflammation and swelling that happens and that's really rheumatoid arthritis. You're stiff in the morning or when you're not moving a lot so these are some of the key characteristics of rheumatoid arthritis and there's many ways to treat rheumatoid arthritis and to get to the root cause. If you think you have it or you know you do have it, come on in we'll go over some options on things that that'll help out with that.
