There are many kinds of arthritis, however, one thing that most cases of arthritis have in common is that they cause a person to experience mild to severe pain in their joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
Arthritis pain is also directly linked to the limitation of mobility in these areas. This condition can affect anyone at any age, but is very commonly found in the hands of aging adults, and can cause swelling, stiffness, weakness, and inflammation that makes it difficult to grasp items or comfortably move the hands, wrists, and fingers.
