The Arthritis Foundation points out that, while common, the condition is not well understood. What’s more, it is not a single disease, but rather “an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions.” Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is among the most common. While there’s no cure for arthritis, physiotherapy and medication can help slow the disease’s progression.
