Arthritis is inflammation of the joints that can cause debilitating joint pain. There are numerous kinds of arthritis, and to find the best treatment strategies, it is very important to determine which type of arthritis you have.

The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis. Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage in the joints to break down, eventually resulting in your bones rubbing together, leading to inflammation, pain and bone injury. The main symptoms of arthritis are the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints.
