What Is Arthritis And Why Is It So Common?

According to the Arthritis Foundation (AF). “Approximately 54 million adults and 300,000 children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with arthritis or some other type of Rheumatic disease-causing joint pain.” If you consider all of the individuals who have arthritis but have not yet been diagnosed, the AF suggests that the true count is likely closer to 91.2 million in total. To make matters even worse, that number is expected to grow by 49 percent by the year 2040.

Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in the United States, affecting over 54 million Americans. To understand more about arthritis, here’s the two most common types of arthritis are:
