Arthritis is an inflammatory disease that causes pain and swelling in the joints. There are more than 100 types of arthritis. The most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Arthritis is a chronic condition that affects the joints of the body. It can also affect other organs and tissues in the body. There are three main types of arthritis: osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. The most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear on the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system attacks your joints and damages them. Psoriatic arthritis occurs when an autoimmune disorder called psoriasis damages your joints.

Arthritis can be treated with medication or surgery to repair or replace damaged parts of the joint or tissue.
