What is wrist arthritis?
When the small joints in your wrist are swollen, are painful and sensitive to touch, you are suffering from wrist arthritis. It is a condition where the cartilage between the wrist bones wear and tear causing direct rubbing of the bones, which results in sharp pains.
There are three types of the arthritis of the wrist: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis.
Osteoarthritis gradually occurs as the cartilage damages. On the other hand, rheumatoid arthritis causes the cells in the wrist to attack themselves whereas psoriasis arthritis results from an injury to the wrist.
