Arthritis: The Leading Cause Of Disability In The United States

Arthritis: The Leading Cause Of Disability In the United States

(Calgary, AB) - The term arthritis is used to refer to more than 100 related conditions. Most people assume that the disease is just minor aches and pains associated with getting older. That is not true. It is actually a complex family of musculosketeltal disorders that can affect people of all ages, races and genders. It can strike anyone at anytime, often with devastating and debilitating effects.

Arthritis brings with it a burden of pain and disability that those living with this disease must face every day. The main symptoms of arthritis are chronic joint pain, stiffness and swelling, which can result in significant disability and poor quality of life.

In the United States. aarthritis is the leading cause of disability It is actually a more frequent cause of activity limitations than heart disease, cancer or diabetes. It effects more than 50 million people. By 2030, it is estimated that 67 million Americans will have arthritis. Within 20 years the number of people with arthritis will soar.

The disease itself can take many forms, but the three most common are:

a) Osteoarthritis (OA), the most common form of arthritis, is a progressive degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of joint cartilage associated with risk factors, such as overweight/obesity.

b) Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), a systemic disease characterized by the inflammation of the membranes lining the joint, which causes pain, stiffness, warmth, swelling and sometimes severe joint damage.

c) Juvenile Arthritis (JA) is an umbrella term used to describe the many autoimmune and inflammatory conditions that can develop in children ages 16 and younger.

In Canada, the disease is also very prominent. One in six Canadians aged 15 years and older are reported to have the disease. That's over 4.6 million adults. By 2036, the number is expected to increase to an estimated 7.5 million adults. That's one in five.

Whereas in the United States, the disease ranks number one among both men and women. In Canada, it is the leading cause of disability among woman and third among men.

Other interesting Canadian arthiritic facts are: a) two out of three Canadians affected by arthritis are women; b) nearly three out of every five people with arthritis are of working age; c) within a generation, there will be a new diagnosis of osteoarthritis in Canada every 60 seconds.
