Arthritis

Arthritis is a broad term for joint inflammations or swelling that causes pain, which worsens with age. Joints refers to a place where two bones meet, such as the knee. It can occur in one or more joints. There are many types of arthritis depending on the source, age and several other factors. A few of them are listed here:

  • Osteoarthritis: it affects the cartilages (protective tissue at the end of bones).
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: autoimmune arthritis where the body’s immune system attacks your joints.
  • Juvenile arthritis: inflammation of joints in children.
  • Infectious arthritis :joint infection which may have spread from another part of the body or wounds to the joints.
  • Spondyloarthritis: inflammation that primarily affects the spine.
  • Psoriatic arthritis :a form of arthritis that affects people with the condition called psoriasis.
  • Gout :sudden inflammation due to build up of uric acid.
