By definition, arthritis means "joint inflammation," and it’s used to describe diseases and conditions that affect joints, the tissues that surround joints, and other connective tissue. Arthritis can affect people differently and it affects people of all ages, races, and ethnic groups.
Arthritis is the most common chronic illness in the United States and the main cause of disability among people over fifty-five years of age in industrialized countries.
