Did you know that there are more than 100 types of arthritis? Although they all involve joint pain, stiffness, and inflammation, each type of arthritis varies in its causes and treatment options. In addition, although it typically afflicts older people, remember that arthritis affects people of all ages.
The most common types of arthritis are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. Osteoarthritis is the variety that develops from joint overuse, while rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease normally diagnosed after age 30. Finally, psoriatic arthritis is an inflammation of the joints that may occur in conjunction with psoriasis.
