What is Arthritis?
Arthritis is the most common cause of pain and physical disability in the UK, with around 10 million people affected.
How can it affect someone?
Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. The two most common forms of arthritis are:
- Osteoarthritis – this is the most common type and causes joint pain and stiffness. It usually develops gradually, over time. Several different joints can be affected, but osteoarthritis is most frequently seen in the hands, knees, hips, feet and spine
- Rheumatoid arthritis – is an inflammatory disease, mainly affecting joints and tendons. An inflamed joint looks swollen and red, and appears warm to the touch. The disease usually starts in the wrists, hands or feet, and can spread to other joints and other parts of the body
