Getting older we at some point in our life suffer from arthritis, some is worse than some, but it is a problem that does not seems to go away. There are over 100 types of arthritis according to stud. The word arthritis means joint inflammation. Inflammation is one of the bodys natural reactions to disease or injury, and includes swelling pain and stiffness. It is an inflammation that lasts for a very long time or recurs, as in arthritis, it can lead to tissue damage. Some types of arthritics also affect other parts of the body such as the skin and internal organs. There are many different king of arthritics, the Oesteoarthritis according to study is the most common type of arthritis. It occurs when the cartilage covering the end of the bones gradually wears away. Rheumaoid arthritis is a long lasting disease that can affects joints in any part of the body but most commonly the hands wrists and knees. Different types of arthritis have different symptoms, but if one stay fit and make exercise a part of their life then it will reduce the effect of arthritis.

My mother suffers from Osteoarthritis. Sometimes, her leg would feel some numbness while walking. We see to it that she is with someone when she walks around. She used to do a lot of walking then, but then since she was diagnosed to have osteoarthritis, her movements have become limited. It does not restrict her from moving a lot, but she can do things in moderation. I really wish and pray for her good health.
