Arthritis

Arthritis can be a challenging condition, but with the right care, its impact can be managed effectively.

Overview

Arthritis is a common condition involving inflammation and tenderness in one or more joints. While there are many types, the most common are osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA). OA results from the breakdown of joint cartilage, whereas RA is an autoimmune condition where the body's immune system targets affected joints, leading to pain and swelling.

The exact cause of arthritis depends on the type, but it can include wear and tear of cartilage (in OA), autoimmune response (in RA), genetic factors, and environmental influences.
