ARTHRITIS

Arthritis

 

Arthritis is a complex family of musculoskeletal disorders consisting of over 100 different diseases and conditions that can impact people of all ages. There are three main types of arthritis including:

 

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. It is characterized by a progressive degenerative joint disease due to the breakdown of joint cartilage.  Risk factors for osteoarthritis include being overweight, having a history of joint injury and advanced age.

 

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a disease characterized by the inflammation of the membranes lining the joint. This can result in swelling, stiffness, pain, and even severe joint damage.

 

Juvenile Arthritis (JA) is a word used to describe the many inflammatory and autoimmune conditions that can occur in children ages 16 and younger.
