Know a little more about the joint areas
this covers the joints so that they do not rub together

Synovial Fluid
feeds fluid to the joints and cartilage
Destroys the bone cartilage
Rheumatoid Arthritis
The body's immune system attacks the lining of the joint capsule
This in turn makes it painful to even move the bones as rubbing is then caused
Intern destroys the bone and cartilage in the joints
Juvenile Arthritis
When it begins, children usually obtain a fever with various rashes

They will experience stiffness and redness along the infected joints
Rheumatoid Arthritis
Usually the symptoms occur on each side of the body of that joint

Joints are painfully swollen, inflamed, and stiff
Symptoms develop slowly overtime

Progressively get worse overtime

Joints become stiff and tender

This mostly occurs in the hands, hips, knees, and spines
If the symptoms occur, then:

the doctor will check for redness, swelling, or irritation near the joints

Then the doctor will run laboratory tests, scans, or an arthroscopy.
Laboratory Tests will help figure out the fluid in the body to find the type of arthritis that is present
Scans such as x-rays, MRIs, CT scans, or an ultrasound will help visualize the inside area and pinpoint the exact type
Arthroscopy will have an incision near the inflamed joint and insert an arthroscope so that you will be able to see the inside of the area through a video
Arthritis cannot fully be restored back to normal but things are done to alleviate the pain
Medication alleviates the pain and inflammation along with creams to reduce swelling
Physical Therapy will exercise the joints to improve the range of motion and strengthen it as a whole
