Arthritis Q & A
Nearly 40 million Americans live with arthritis pain, and more than half of them are under 65 years of age. The most common pain symptoms caused by arthritis include joint pain, stiffness and swelling, redness and warmth, and a reduced range of motion. In most cases, arthritis is typically due to reduced cartilage. Cartilage is a specific kind of flexible tissue that protects your joints.
The most common forms of arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. With rheumatoid arthritis, the immune system attacks the tissue lining your joints that keep your cartilage healthy. Whereas, osteoarthritis occurs because of wear and tear on your joints that causes cartilage degeneration.
