Arthritis is a general word we tend to use to describe a number of different conditions.  The organisation Versus Arthritis gives a wealth of information about what arthritis is and details the specific types of arthritis that we can get.

I’ve taken the links from their site to help direct you to each subject for ease, as follows:


This is the most common form of arthritis, it’s wear and tear of the joints which happens as we get older.

Rheumatoid Arthritis



Psoriatic Arthritis

Ankylosing Spondylitis

Juvenile Arthritis
