Arthritis and joint pain are among the most debilitating human conditions.  Chances are you or someone you know has arthritis. Arthritis causes pain, stiffness and sometimes swelling in or around joints. This can make it hard to perform the movements you rely on every day to work or to take care of your family. There are many options available and steps you can take to avoid arthritis or to reduce arthritis pain and keep the freedom to move about, which so many take for granted.

There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and the cause of most arthritis types is unknown. Scientists are currently studying and considering three major factors that contribute in one way or another to certain types of arthritis.
