Arthritis and Other Chronic Diseases

arthritis

Arthritis is generally classified into 2 categories; the “wear and tear type” also known as osteoarthritis and the “inflammatory type” such as rheumatoid arthritis. There are many different types of inflammatory arthritis. While the common perception is that arthritis is a disease of aging, it is more common in younger people than one might think. While the underlying cause and the treatment vary greatly, the good news is that there is help and hope for living well with arthritis.
