Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that involves inflammation of one or more joints. There are more than 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form, osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), is the result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint or age. Other forms of arthritis are rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused by an infection in the joints. The main complaint of people who have arthritis is joint pain. The pain is often a constant and may be localized in the affected joint. The pain of arthritis is due to the inflammation that occurs around the joint, the damage to the joint due to the disease, the daily wear and tear of the joints, the muscular tensions caused by energetic movements against rigid and painful joints and fatigue . There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Treatment options vary depending on the type of arthritis and include physical therapy, lifestyle changes (which include exercise and weight control), orthotics, medications. Joint replacement surgery may be necessary to erode forms of arthritis. Medications can help reduce inflammation in the joint that decreases pain. In addition, by decreasing inflammation, joint damage can be reduced.
