Arthritis is a group of conditions characterized by inflammation and pain in the joints. There are several types of arthritis, each with its own causes, symptoms, and treatment approaches. Some common types of arthritis include:
1. Osteoarthritis: This is the most common type of arthritis and occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of bones wears down over time. It often affects the hands, knees, hips, and spine.
2. Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune disorder where the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the synovium (the lining of the membranes that surround the joints), causing inflammation and joint damage. It commonly affects the hands, wrists, and knees.
3. Psoriatic arthritis: A form of arthritis that affects some people with psoriasis, causing joint pain, stiffness, and swelling. It can affect any joint in the body and may also cause changes to the nails and skin.
4. Ankylosing spondylitis: A type of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, causing inflammation of the vertebrae and leading to stiffness and pain in the back and neck.
5. Gout: A form of arthritis caused by the buildup of uric acid crystals in the joints, leading to sudden and severe pain, swelling, and redness, often in the big toe.
