Who’s At Risk of Arthritis?

Some individuals are more likely to develop arthritis than others. Arthritis risk factors include:

  • Old age. 

The risk of arthritis increases with age.

  • Family history of arthritis. 

Some types of arthritis are associated with genetics, meaning they run in the family.

  • Sex. 

Women are at higher risk of developing most types of arthritis, especially osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Men are more likely to develop gout.

  • Obesity. 

Excess weight puts a lot of pressure on hip and knee joints and can contribute to the onset and progression of arthritis in those joints.

  • Smoking.

 Smokers are more likely to develop or exacerbate rheumatoid arthritis.

  • Physical inactivity.

 A sedentary lifestyle is linked to the early onset of certain types of arthritis.

  • Joint overuse. 

Occupations, sports, and hobbies that require repetitive or strenuous hip or knee bending can gradually increase the risk of arthritis.

  • Previous joint injury. 

A previously damaged joint is at higher risk of developing arthritis.
