Arthritis is a prevalent condition affecting millions worldwide. It is characterized by inflammation in one or more joints, leading to symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and difficulty moving the joint. There are over 100 different types of arthritis, but the most common ones include:

  • Osteoarthritis: This is the most common form of arthritis, often referred to as 'wear and tear' arthritis. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of your bones wears down over time, leading to pain, stiffness, and swelling.
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis: This is an autoimmune disorder where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues, including the joints. This can lead to severe joint damage and deformity if not treated early.
  • Septic Arthritis: This is a less common form of arthritis that is caused by a bacterial or fungal infection in a joint. It can lead to severe pain and swelling, and is considered a medical emergency.

The symptoms of arthritis can vary greatly depending on the type of arthritis and the individual's overall health. However, the most common symptoms across all types of arthritis include:

  • Joint pain: This is often the first symptom of arthritis. The pain may be constant or it may come and go, and it is usually worse with activity.
  • Stiffness: People with arthritis often find that their joints are stiff, especially in the morning or after periods of inactivity.
  • Swelling: This is caused by inflammation in the joint. It can make the joint feel warm to the touch and can restrict the joint's range of motion.
  • Decreased range of motion: Over time, the inflammation and damage caused by arthritis can make it difficult to move the affected joints.
