Arthritis is a term used for inflammation of a joint as a consequence of age-related changes, ultimately leading to degenerative changes and joint structural compromise. Here, we will briefly explain the causes of osteoarthritis and the treatment of osteoarthritis at our Osteopathic Clinics in Solihull and Birmingham.


Common places of arthritis pain are often found in weight-bearing joints like the knees and hips, and non-weight-bearing joints like the hands and shoulders. Two common examples of arthritis are:


  • Osteoarthritis often referred to as ‘wear and tear; or degeneration with the joint 

  • Rheumatoid arthritis – this can be very acute and affect many joints which become painful and reduce the range of movement.



Predisposing factors and causes of osteoarthritis include the following:

  • Age

  • Hyper-mobility

  • Previous trauma 

  • Obesity 

  • Mal-alignment / biomechanical compromise

  • Vascular insufficiency

  • Hormonal imbalances
