Arthritis is a medical condition that causes inflammation in one or more joints, leading to pain and stiffness. It is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide, with the most common types being osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that occurs when the cartilage that cushions the joints wears down over time, causing bones to rub against each other. It is commonly seen in older individuals and can affect any joint, but typically affects weight-bearing joints such as the hips, knees, and spine.
Rheumatoid arthritis, on the other hand, is an autoimmune condition where the body’s immune system attacks the lining of the joints, leading to inflammation and damage. This type of arthritis can affect any joint in the body and is more commonly seen in women.
Symptoms of arthritis include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and reduced range of motion. Treatment options vary depending on the type and severity of arthritis but may include medications, physical therapy, lifestyle modifications, and surgery in some cases.
