Arthritis is a joint disease where inflammation of several joints occurs. There are many types of arthritis to mention. The most common is osteoarthritis which is a result of old age or infection and sometimes the trauma of a joint. Other forms of arthritis would be psoriatic arthritis, septic arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
There are many causes of arthritis which depend mostly of its type and where it is located. The major symptom of it would be muscle pain or joint pain. This pain is caused by inflammation of the joint which is caused by fatigue, muscle strain, damage, and forceful movements of a joint.

Most treatments would definitely include physical and occupational therapy, and probably a change in lifestyle such as a certain diet, weight loss and more exercise. If the damage to the joint is too severe, you may need to go under joint replacement surgery.
