What Body Parts does Arthritis Affect?
Excellent question. Now, as you know, the body is one interconnected mind-blowingly complex system of systems. Anything that impacts one part, or one system, or one link in the chain, impacts them all to a degree. Mild to serious arthritis can impact skin, bones, soft tissues, eyes, mouth, your cardiovascular and immune systems, as well as your nervous system. A stellar reason not to let joint issues go undiagnosed and untreated!
Most common are hip arthritis, arthritis in the wrists and fingers, spinal arthritis, arthritis in the neck, arthritis in the knees, and feet. Joint arthritis is hard on surrounding cartilage, tendons, ligaments and soft tissue, as is the accompanying inflammation.
