What is "arthritis"?

Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation and stiffness in the joints, leading to pain and reduced movement. There are several types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and gout, each with its own causes and symptoms. Common symptoms of arthritis include joint pain, swelling, stiffness, and decreased range of motion. Treatment for arthritis typically involves medications to reduce inflammation and manage pain, as well as lifestyle changes such as exercise, weight management, and joint protection techniques. In some cases, physical therapy or joint injections may be recommended to improve joint function.
