Arthritis describes a range of conditions affecting muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue in various parts of the body. Generally speaking, it causes joints to stiffen and become inflamed; sometimes after injury, or because of a virus. Genetics play a part too.

There are around 200 different forms of arthritis, ranging from osteoarthritis – essentially wear and tear to the joint and the most common type – to autoimmune forms, like rheumatoid arthritis, when the body attacks its own tissues by mistake.

With so many different types of arthritis, it’s important to push for the right diagnosis. And although there’s no cure for arthritis, new treatments are being developed all the time to improve quality of life for sufferers. 

If you’re looking for answers, this essential guide will provide them; and show that by staying positive, keeping mobile and getting the right treatment, you can manage your condition effectively – and get on with the rest of your life.
