Spine Arthritis Can Be Caused By:
- Causes of spinal arthritis are usually either degenerative or rheumatoid arthritis. Degenerative arthritis occurs with aging and is most commonly associated with women. Injury may aggravate underlying degenerative arthritis.
- Rheumatoid arthritis is related to the immune system turning against one’s own tissues causing swelling and inflammation of joints.
- Both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis can cause pain, tenderness, swelling and stiffness of the joints, which can negatively impact the lifestyle.
