Arthritis is a very common ailment and many people have been found complaining about it. Arthritis in the simplest terms is joint pain. Our joints are protected by cartilage. Cartilage eases the pressure on our joints when we change postures or make any movements involving our joints like walking, jogging etc. Arthritis breaks down this cartilage increasing the friction between our bones. This constant rubbing of bone with bone leads to many problems like swelling, inflammation, stiffness and acute pain.
