Arthritis is a disease that causes joint inflammation, pain, and stiffness. It can affect any joint in the body and most often causes degeneration of the joint over time.
Arthritis isn’t a diagnosis but a medical term that describes joint inflammation. There are over 100 conditions that cause arthritis. Some of the most common include:
Osteoarthritis, also known as wear-and-tear arthritis, causes joint inflammation because of the gradual breakdown of the cartilage that separates the bones in a joint. Without the cartilage, the bones rub together, causing pain. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis.
RA is an autoimmune disorder. People with rheumatoid arthritis have joint pain and inflammation because their immune system mistakenly attacks the healthy parts of the joint. Over time, the constant attack causes permanent joint damage and deformity.
Ankylosing spondylitis causes chronic inflammation in the spine, leading to long-term back pain.
Psoriatic arthritis is a type of arthritis associated with psoriasis, an autoimmune skin condition that causes an overproduction of skin cells, leading to scaly, red patches of skin.
