Arthritis


Arthritis is inflammation of the joint. Inflammation occurs when the joint becomes injured or diseased, which can cause swelling, pain and stiffness. Over a long period of time, inflammation can result in severe joint damage.

One in Five Americans are afflicted by arthritis. Osteoarthritis, also known as Degenerative Joint Disease, occurs when the cartilage covering the joints gradually wears away and degenerates with age. Osteoarthritis can affect joints in the hip, knee, shoulder, spine, elbow, ankles, or feet.
