Unpleasant sensations in the legs can be associated with diseases such as arthritis or osteoarthritis. Most people do not consider these symptoms of something serious and start to be treated yourself. Use the advice of "well-wishers" who were treated by a similar method. Thus, people often aggravate the situation. Arthrosis and arthritis are different conditions that require corresponding treatment. Unpleasant sensations in the legs are caused by different reasons.

Osteoarthritis – causes

Osteoarthritis – a common disease. It develops when exposed to heavy loads causes damage to the healthy joint. This leads to primary osteoarthritis. If under the action of trauma to deform the joint, then eventually develop secondary osteoarthritis. In a sick body is a violation of metabolism. As a result, the cartilage loses its elasticity. Eventually there is tissue destruction, and pain occur. Further loads will result in deterioration of joint mobility. Causes of osteoarthritis:

- hard work;
- scoliosis;
- excess weight;
- inflammation or injury to the joint;
- metabolic disorders.

Diagnose osteoarthritis by radiography. Also a blood and synovial fluid. Among the methods of treatment of the disease physiotherapy, ultrasound, etc.

Arthritis – the causes

Arthritis is a tricky disease. The doctors still cannot know the cause of the disease. Why a person with no objective reasons begin to inflame the joints? The only thing we can say – the disease begins with failure in the immune system. Unable to provoke stress, infection, joint injuries, hypothermia. After this "push" in the body begin to accumulate aggressive substances. As soon as their number reaches a critical mass, they will begin to attack the joints, causing inflammation. In the end it leads to their deformation. In a patient with arthritis deteriorate the mobility of the joints, which leads to permanent disability.

If not timely treatment, rheumatoid arthritis begins to affect internal organs. Diagnosis of the disease involves immunological and biochemical analysis of blood, arthroscopy, radiography, tomography. If the disease already exists, it can only be suspended. To do this, take anti-rheumatic and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Do not think that the disease only affects the elderly. Of all patients 30% are people under 35 years. If the feet ache, the body gives a signal about problems. You should immediately consult a doctor. Only after a complete diagnosis and a diagnosis you can begin treatment.
