Arthritis is an inflammatory disease that affects one or more joints in the body, usually the elbows, knees, fingers, and hands. Of the 100+ types of arthritis, the most common forms in the elderly are rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis (OA). This inflammatory disease of the joints could be the result of obesity, normal wear and tear of the joints, infection, family history or other causes. Common symptoms include stiffness, swelling around the joints, limited range of motion, redness of the skin around the affected joint, and heightened pain in the morning for certain types of arthritis.
