Arthritis is a disorder of one or more joints of the body, characterized by inflammation and destruction of cartilage that can cause pain, redness, swelling, deformation, stiffness, weakness, locking and dysfunction. Arthritic conditions range from mild to debilitating, clinically affecting one or multiple joints of the body. It can develop as a result of autoimmune disorder, trauma, repetitive stress and altered physiology.
It is imperative to identify a correct diagnosis and develop a proper therapeutic plan to prevent irreparable destruction of joints and other tissues, as well as alleviate associated clinical symptoms.
