Arthritis in Adults: Case Scenario

Arthritis refers to a group of more than 100 different types of joint inflammation and pain conditions. The most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis is a prevalent condition in adults, with millions affected worldwide. It is more common in older adults but can affect people of all ages. Common symptoms include joint pain, swelling, stiffness, and reduced range of motion, which can significantly impact a person's quality of life. This is the most common form of arthritis, often associated with the aging process. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of bones wears down over time. Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that affects the joints, causing pain and inflammation. It can also affect other organs and systems in the body. Management strategies may include medications (e.g., pain relievers, disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs), physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and sometimes surgery to repair or replace damaged joints.
