Arthritis is not a single disease: it is an umbrella term meaning ‘joint pain’ and refers to over 100 conditions affecting approximately 54.4 million Americans.
Most common arthritis diagnoses:
- Osteoarthritis: a common form of arthritis in which the bones and cartilage deteriorate, causing pain
- Tendinitis: When an inflamed or irritated tendon causes pain around the joint. Tendinitis most commonly occurs in the wrists, shoulders, elbows, knees, and heels
