It is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints. Arthritis can affect children and adults and it worsens with age. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are two most common types of arthritis. The pain and inflammation caused by arthritis hinders daily activities, from something as basic as brushing, buttoning shirt, chopping vegetables to engaging in hobbies and recreational activities such as playing football, dance, etc. Along with causing physiological impact, it has psychological implications like depression too.
