What is Arthritis?

Arthritis (from Greek arthro-, joint + -itis, inflammation; plural: arthritides) is a group of conditions involving damage (inflammation) to the joints of the body. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in people older than fifty-five years.  A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meet.
