There are a number of different types of inflammatory arthritis including rheumatoid, sero-negative, post viral or infective.
Rheumatoid arthritis, a type of inflammatory arthritis, is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints. The immune system normally protects us from infection but with rheumatoid arthritis the body mistakenly attacks the thin membrane that lines the joints. This can result in joint damage, pain, swelling, inflammation and loss of function. Rheumatoid arthritis, commonly affects the knees, hands, wrists, feet, elbows and ankles.
Patients with inflammatory arthritis will be referred to a Rheumatologist.
