Morning Stiffness is common among persons with arthritis, even if they follow a strict treatment plan. The severity of this symptom varies depending on the type of arthritis you have. If you have rheumatoid arthritis or another kind of inflammatory arthritis, for example, your morning stiffness is likely to continue more than an hour, if not several hours.
Osteoarthritis or another non-inflammatory musculoskeletal ailment is more likely to cause morning stiffness that goes away in half an hour or less.
Other health conditions that can cause morning stiffness include:
- Thyroid disease
- Vitamin D deficiency
Whatever the cause of your morning stiffness, Orthopaedic doctor at Shreya Hospital in Ghaziabad may suggest:
- Low-impact exercise like yoga or tai chi
- Healthy lifestyle changes such as losing weight or reducing stress
- Physical therapy
