Arthritis is an inflammatory disorder of the joints. Two bones come together at a point in the body called a joint. In order for the parts of the body that are connected by a joint to be mobile, the joint must be able to flex and move. Arthritis is defined as inflammation of one or more joints. Joint pain is a common symptom of arthritis.
Arthralgia is the medical term for joint pain. The rheumatic diseases include arthritis. Joints, muscles, ligaments, cartilage, and tendons are common targets, but many of these conditions can also affect other, more internal organs. Arthritis comes in a wide variety of forms (over 100 have been described so far, and the number is growing). Cartilage degeneration-related variants are just one type. People of all ages, sexes, and ages are affected by arthritis. Many people with arthritis are still in their prime working years.
