What is Arthritis…?

Arthritis is oldest and most chronic disease in the world that affects over 66 million people worldwide. Arthritis arises when the joints fail to work properly. The two most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is occurs when the cartilages that protect bones begin to wear away and becomes steadily worse over time. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic condition on the other hand, occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own tissue resulting in inflammation.
