Arthritis is a disease in which the joints of the body have pain, inflammation and stiffness.

The two types of arthritis are:
Osteoarthritis: This is developed due to wear and tear or overuse of joints usually due to age or obesity. The small and large joints are affected symmetrically like both hands, feet, wrists or elbows. There is pain but not much swelling in the joints.
Rheumatoid Arthritis: This is an auto immune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks the joints of the body. The weight bearing joints like the hip, knee or the spine as well neck, small finger joint, thumb and toe are affected. It usually begins on one side of the body and gradually affects the other side and is accompanied with swelling in these joints.
