Arthritis Treatment & Relief

Arthritis is a condition when your joints become inflamed. Usually, this is due to age, trauma to the joint, or infection. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative joint disease that affects both the larger and smaller joints of the body. Other forms include rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, septic arthritis, and various other autoimmune diseases.

Causes

The most common reason for those suffering from arthritis is wear and tear on the larger and smaller joints of the body. These include the back, hip, hands, wrists, feet, and knees. Patients who have dealt with a previous injury are also those with a higher percentage of developing arthritis symptoms.

Symptoms
