Arthritis is a medical condition that causes inflammation of one or more joints, leading to pain and stiffness. You can’t always prevent arthritis, due to the fact that it can be genetic in nature and can be a condition of old age. This does not mean that just because we age, we automatically will have arthritis, but the chances of developing arthritis increases.
If you are afflicted with arthritis, it is a medically manageable condition and with physical therapy and sometimes surgery (in more severe cases) can be used as treatment to help reduce the pain and help you live a more comfortable life.
