Arthritis is a not one specific disease, per se, but rather a general condition where the cartilage between bones becomes inflamed, irritated, or damaged. It can affect any joint in the body but most commonly strikes the wrists, hands, shoulders, hips, knees, and even the spin. The bone-on-bone friction leads to chronic pain, discomfort, and mobility issues that get in the way of all aspects of life.
There are many types of arthritis but osteoarthritis is the most common. It’s when the cartilage that protects the joints begins to break down and the bones rub against each other. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition where the immune system attacks the cartilage. Another form, post-traumatic arthritis, can occur after an injury or infection in which the cartilage or bones are damaged.
Far and away, the most common symptom of arthritis — all types of arthritis — is pain and discomfort in the joints. Not only do they become swollen and tender, but range of motion is typically restricted and movement in general slows down. If arthritis reaches advanced stages, it can often result in bone loss and breakage, chronic severe pain, and greatly limited mobility.
