Definition of arthritis

The word "arthritis" is a combination of two Greek words "arthro" which means "joint" and "itis" meaning "inflammation". Thus, arthritis is a common disease that affects the bones and muscles of a joint. A joint affected by arthritis is often stiff, swollen and painful. Arthritis can be so painful that can sometimes interfere with daily routine activities and restrict the movement greatly.

When cartilage to degenerate, there is friction between the bones, which can result in bone spurs or osteophytes. Aging causes the degeneration of cartilage due to weakening. Obesity, history of previous injuries, genetic reasons, bone infections, acid pH, repetitive movements, calcium deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, environmental humidity and stress are other factors that cause arthritis. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are the most common types of arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis affects young people and occurs when the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the joints.
