Millions of adults over 50 live with arthritis. The parts of the body that are most often affected include the hand, spine, hip, and knee. If you have arthritis, you can take some steps to stay active and comfortable. Medications, exercise, and complementary therapies, such as massage, can help.

Conditions

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. It causes pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints by breaking down the slippery tissue covering the ends of bones. OA occurs mostly in older people, although younger people who have injured or stressed a joint are at higher risk, as well.  Read

Rheumatoid Arthritis

RA is the second most common form of arthritis. It damages the linings of joints, causing pain, swelling, and stiffness. The disorder often begins between ages 40 and 60, unlike osteoarthritis, which occurs mostly in people over 60. It has no cure, but treatment can ease symptoms and keep you moving.  Read

Gout

Gout is a form of arthritis that is more common in men than women and results when high levels of uric acid calcify in joints, often in the big toe. An attack of gout may happen suddenly, causing severe pain and inflamation of the affected area, and then go away within a few days. Keeping uric acid levels low through proper diet and nutrition can help reduce or eliminate symptoms.  Read
