Arthritis is inflammation of a joint, and involves damage to the cartilage and articulating surfaces of said joint. Arthritis is caused by trauma / injury, abnormal metabolism, genetic makeup, infections and immune system dysfunction, and its symptoms include pain, stiffness, swelling and decreased joint mobility.
