Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. The main symptoms of arthritis are:
- Decreased range of motion
All of which typically worsen with age. Severe arthritis, particularly if it affects your hands or arms, can make it difficult for you to do daily tasks. Arthritis of your back, knee and hip joints can keep you from walking comfortably or sitting up straight. In some cases, joints may become twisted and deformed.
