The word arthritis originates from a Greek word, meaning 'inflammation of the joints'. Arthritis results in the disorder of body joints. The most common types of arthritis which are commonly seen among aging people, are osteoarthritis (OA), psoriatic arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and septic arthritis. When the cartilage of the joint, deteriorates gradually, it is called osteoarthritis. As it hardens over a period of time, it leads to deformity. Inflammation of membranes is an example of autoimmune disease, rheumatoid arthritis, which is a result of over active immune system. RA affects symmetrical body parts like, both hands and knees. The rheumatoid arthritis knee symptoms are very slow in manifesting themselves. Wear and tear of body due to age, overweight, common knee injuries, trauma to the knee joint and any illness and infection, genetic factors can lead to knee arthritis. Abnormal metabolism can also lead to knee arthritis. A person having knee-arthritis can face a lot of difficulty in carrying out day-to-day activities. Here is an overview of knee arthritis symptoms.
