Were you looking for information about Arthritis? Arthuritis is a common misspelling of arthritis.
Arthritis -- inflammation of the joints -- is one of the most common diseases in the United States. Among the more common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and gout. Most types of arthritis are chronic, meaning that they can go on for a long period of time. Symptoms include joint swelling and stiffness, and tenderness or pain when touching a joint. A few over-the-counter medications that can safely ease arthritis pain are Motrin®, Advil®, and Aleve®; while some prescription drugs for arthritis pain include naproxen, diclofenac, and meloxicam. Besides medications, treatment for arthritis can involve rest; exercise; eating a healthy, well-balanced diet; and learning the right way to use and protect your joints.
