What is Arthritis?

The term arthritis covers many different conditions (over 100 of them), which fall into two categories: osteoarthritis (OA) and inflammatory arthritis (IA). OA is the most common type of arthritis, and occurs when the cartilage between bones wears down, causing bones to become less protected (2).

IA, in contrast, occurs when joint inflammation is caused by the immune system, rather than mechanical wearing down of cartilage. Common types of IA include: Rheumatoid arthritis - A disease that occurs when the immune system attacks its own tissues, including membranes that are found in the joints. Ankylosing spondylitis - Arthritis of the spine that can cause spinal bones to fuse.

Gout - A condition where extra uric acid (a bodily waste product) turns into hard crystals that accumulate in the joints causing pain (usually in the joint of the big toe).

Psoriatic arthritis - A disease that causes inflammation of both the joints and skin.

Arthritis Symptoms

People with arthritis typically experience pain, stiffness, and swelling in their hips, knees, hands, and/or spine, although other parts of the body can also be affected.

Causes of Arthritis

First of all, it is important to understand that osteoarthritis is universal. From our early 20’s and until we die, cartilage wear-down occurs in the joints of every human being.

However, these structural changes are not predictors of pain. Osteoarthritis is best thought of as “wrinkles on the inside”: normal, non-dangerous changes in the joints that occur over a person’s lifespan, which are not inherently painful. In fact, some people have advanced osteoarthritis, but little-to-no pain; others have mild osteoarthritis, but extreme joint pain.

The same is true for inflammatory arthritis: some people with IA experience little-to-no pain, while others experience extreme pain. Furthermore, though people with IA may experience bouts of increased inflammation, their pain may continue long after the inflammation has subsided.

If structural changes (like cartilage wear-down and inflammation) are not strongly correlated with pain levels, then what causes arthritic pain?

The answer is that all pain that humans experience is biopsychosocial. This means that the pain we experience is related to our biological reality (for example, the wear-down of cartilage in our joints), our psychological reality (for example, our thoughts, mood, fears, and past experiences of pain we’ve had in our lives), and our sociological reality (for example, our socioeconomic status and access to medical care).

In other words: our pain is impacted by many factors that are not purely biological. In light of the biopsychosocial nature of pain, it is helpful to assess whether your arthritis pain is primary, secondary, or a combination of the two.

Primary arthritis pain is caused by the nervous system amplifying pain signals and/or interpreting neutral sensations as painful, and can be successfully treated by addressing psychosocial pain drivers.

Numerous studies have found evidence that Primary Pain plays a role in both OA and IA. Secondary arthritis pain, in contrast, is caused by structural issues (such as inflammation or tissue damage).

Since the brain moderates all pain, the sensation of Primary and Secondary pain is similar -- but the drivers are very different. Assessing whether you have primary pain, secondary pain, or a combination of the two is crucial for identifying the most effective treatment for your arthritis pain.

I signed up for Lin for a month. I was really skeptical but I’ve spent ore on stuff that hasn’t worked for my fibromyalgia. Not a day went by that I didn’t have at least a constant pain around a 3/10 on a good day with it going up to 6-7/10. Bad days would start at a 6-7. Fatigue would keep me in bed or dependent on caffeine. I have only scratched the surface of what Lin has to offer and last week, I spent 3 days walking around NYC, playing tour guide for my family. I was clocking at least 12k steps a day! I’m tired but happy I was able to be present with my family and not retreating to the hotel many times a day to try to get over the pain. I can’t wait to see what happens next. (Most of the time, my pain was from 0/10 to max 2/10)

I am grateful for Lin Health and all I have learned from one on one coaching and the tools provided in the app. My pain went from a 9-10 to a 1-2 in about 6 months. The tools have been life-changing and the new mindset is a growing work in progress. Give it a try, I can't say enough positive things about this experience.

I can’t say enough about my experience 👍 I worked with Hunter… he was most helpful & compassionate. I had TMS several years ago related to lower spine displacement. For me: Pain…. Is a telephone that won’t stop ringing until I stop & address my internal dis-ease. Recovery is a multifactorial process of letting go & building a strong-healthy mind-body-spirit 🌷

I've been with Lin Health for a year now, and what a difference the program has made in my life! My coach is a wealth of knowledge and compassion and encouragement.

Lin has been a game changer. I wasn't able to run for years due to a lingering knee injury I sustained back in high school. Lin gave me the confidence to say that my knee is healthy and my pain is neuroplastic.

My mindset is shifting and more automatic to think thoughts of safety and comfort and reduce panic. I have reduced my medication by over half and as a result of reduced meds and calm, I have also reduced my reliance on Tums to nearly zero.

I am not new to MBS the program started great refreshing what I have learned before and learned more ways to work with my pain and anxiety.

Amazing program. Doors are opening and I am learning lots of new stuff every day. My coach is wonderful and supportive. My concerns, honestly, come from looking at Curable and seeing that they suggest journaling and a few other elements which I think should be addressed in your initial introduction. I don't know if you are pro journaling or not.
