What is arthritis?
Arthritis is an inflammation of a joint and can occur anywhere in the body. Symptoms are primarily joint pain and stiffness, which often worsen with age.Arthritis can be caused by heredity, abnormal metabolism, joint injury or infection, or by an immune system dysfunction. The two most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
With rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s immune system attacks the joint linings, causing painful swelling. Over time this can cause bone erosion and joint deformity. Physiotherapy and medication can help slow the disease’s progression, and joint warmers can offer relief from painful symptoms.
