Arthritis is a medical condition associated with swelling and inflammation of the joints. It is a result of a breakdown in cartilage with inflammation. The cartilage protects joints and enables smooth movement by absorbing shock when pressure is placed on a joint. If it contains less than usual amount of cartilage, the bones rub together to cause pain, swelling (inflammation), and stiffness. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis are the most common types, but there are many other forms.
