    Arthritis

    Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. The two main types of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis occurs when your joint’s cartilage has been damaged. Rheumatoid arthritis is when your immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule, which is a membrane that encloses all the joint parts.
