There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The most common form, osteoarthritis (degenerative joint
disease) is a result of trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. Other arthritis forms are
rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, and related autoimmune diseases. Septic arthritis is caused
by joint infection.
The major complaint by individuals who have arthritis is joint pain. Pain is often a constant and may
be localized to the joint affected. The pain from arthritis occurs due to inflammation that occurs
around the joint, damage to the joint from disease, daily wear and tear of joint, muscle strains
caused by forceful movements against stiff, painful joints and fatigue.
