Arthritis is a very common condition – estimates suggest that over 10 million people are affected in the UK alone – that causes pain and inflammation in the joints.

Arthritis is a common condition that affects joints throughout the body, leading to pain and inflammation. It is a very common condition which, according to estimates, may affect over 10 million people in the UK alone. There are two types of Arthritis: osteoarthritis and rheumatiod arthritis. People of all ages can be affected but Arthritis more commonly develops with age.

Characterised by the wearing of cartilage that surrounds joints, causing stiffness, inflammation and pain, as well as restricted movement and the weakness and wasting of muscles over time. The condition may be accelerated by a number of factors, including infection or injury to the joint, autoimmune disorders, and genetics.

Treatments for Arthritis

The most common treatments prescribed for Arthritis include opioids, steroid injections, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Lifestyle changes such as exercise regimes, diets, and physiotherapy may also be suggested; in more serious cases, surgery may also be considered.
