Arthritis can be a painful debilitating disease that impedes on one’s quality of life. Caused by aging, heredity or repetitive joint stress, this condition is common in both men and women.
Arthritis causes the joint to become swollen and stiff, which often leads to joint pain. The joint pain comes from weakened or worn away cartilage at the end of the bones causing the ends of the bones to meet and rub against each other.
Treatment for arthritis pain can include cortisone injections, anti-inflammatory medications and exercise.
