From osteoarthritis to rheumatoid, arthritis can come in more than a hundred different types. The former is the most common and is a degenerative disease that affects joints and reduces mobility. Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage that protects the joints wears away and gets inflamed, mostly due to age. The fact that our body is less able to suppress inflammatory responses as age progresses also means that the inflammation has more chances of becoming chronic and painful. Osteoarthritis sufferers often find their joints swollen and mobility significantly reduced due to pain. As a result, their quality of life reduces which is not a good sign in the elderly.
