What Causes Lower Back, Hip and Knee Arthritis? Because arthritis is a catch-all term, pinpointing what causes arthritis may be difficult. In most cases, arthritis is caused by overuse, wear and tear, or injuries. Arthritis can also be caused by:
• Infections, such as Lyme disease • An immune system dysfunction - rheumatoid arthritis • The inheritance of osteoarthritis • An abnormal metabolism, which leads to gout
For arthritis suffers, even simply walking can cause pain in the lower back, hip or knee. Often, arthritis is a downward spiral of progress pain, limiting movement and strength, which in turn causes more inactivity and pain. However, by improving joint movement, muscle strength, balance and coordination, this cycle can be broken, reducing pain and inflammation.
