Types of Wrist Arthritis
Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are two types of arthritis that most commonly occurs in the wrist. Osteoarthritis progressively wears away the smooth articular cartilage covering the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is when the body’s immune system attacks the synovium (tissue lining joints and tendons responsible for nourishment) and leads to degeneration of the bones and soft tissue. Unprotected joints will cause the bones the grind together and is very painful.
