Arthritis is a disease related to our body’s joints.

In most cases, it is characterized by joint inflammation. The human body has more than 100 joints linked to the bones. The tissues that belong to the articular cavity are the most prone to inflammation. Inflammation is a natural reaction of the body to an irritated or infected tissue and takes the form of swelling, accompanied by pain and redness.

There are several forms of arthritis, such as fibromyalgia, juvenile arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, infectious arthritis, reactive arthritis, arthrosis, lupus, gout, Paget’s disease, sclerodermia and many more others.
