Scholars have defined Arthritis as the swelling and tenderness of one or more of the joints in the body. And the symptoms of arthritis are stiffness and joint pain, which typically worsens with age. The most common arthritis types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis usually results in the cartilage that’s the hard, slippery tissue which covers the ends of bones where they form a joint to break down. Rheumatoid arthritis is one disease in which the immune system attacks the joints, start with the lining of joints.

Uric acid crystals, that form when there is too much uric acid in the blood, can result in gout. Infections or underlying disease, like psoriasis or lupus, can result in other types of arthritis. The treatments are vary depending on the form of arthritis. The major goals of arthritis treatments are to decrease symptoms and improve quality of life.

The types of arthritis are Ankylosing spondylitis, Gout, Joint infections, Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, Osteoarthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, Reactive arthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Septic arthritis, and Thumb arthritis.

The two main forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis that’s damage joints in different ways. Looking at the causes one after the other


This is the most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis deals with wear-and-tear damage to the joint’s cartilage like the hard, slick coating on the ends of bones where they form a joint. The Cartilage cushions end of the bones and allow nearly frictionless joint motion, but sufficient damage can cause bone grinding directly on bone, which result in pain and restricted movement. This wear and tear occur over many decades, or it can hasten by a joint injury or infection. Osteoarthritis can also affect the entire joint. It results in changes in the bones and deterioration of the connective tissues which attach muscle to bone and hold the joint together. It also results in inflammation of the joint lining.

Rheumatoid arthritis

Looking at rheumatoid arthritis, here the body’s immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule, a tough membrane which encloses all the joint parts. This lining known as synovial membrane becomes inflamed and swollen. The disease process may eventually destroy cartilage and bone within the joint.

It must is made clear that, there some families in which this arthritis can be transmitted or inherited which means if there record of the disease in the family it is transferable.
