Arthritis is an inflammation of the joint that leads to the destruction of healthy joint cartilage. With over 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions, this disease affects people of all ages, sexes and races, and is the leading cause of disability in America. The two most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Also known as degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage covering the joints gradually wears away and degenerates with age and can affect any joint. In addition to aging, an increase in sporting and physical activity has contributed to an increased prevalence in osteoarthritis in the US. This has led to the development of therapies that are designed to relieve symptoms, to delay the need for total joint replacement, and to potentially stimulate the growth of cartilage.
