Arthritis is a complex family of musculoskeletal disorders. The musculoskeletal system is the system of muscles and tendons and ligaments and bones and joints and associated tissues that move the body and maintain its form. Arthritis consists of more than 100 different diseases or conditions that can affect people of all ages, races and genders. It robs people of their quality of life and ability to move without pain. The most common signs and symptoms of Arthritis are joint soreness and pain, stiffness after periods of rest that goes away when activity resumes and deterioration of coordination, posture and walking due to pain and stiffness.
