The most common type of arthritis, osteoarthritis includes wear-and-tear damage to your joint’s cartilage — the hard, slick coating on the ends of bones. Adequate damage can result in bone grinding directly on bone, which causes pain and restricted movement. This type of wear and tear might occur over many years, or it can be hastened by a joint injury or infection.

What is Rheumatoid arthritis?

In rheumatoid arthritis is a type of arthritis in which the body’s immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule, a tough membrane which encloses all parts of the joint. This lining, called as synovial membrane which becomes inflamed and swollen. The process of this disease may ultimately destroy cartilages and bones within the joint.
