Any disorder that affects the joints can be termed as arthritis. Joint pain and stiffness are its key characteristics. Some other symptoms may also occur, such as warmth, swelling, redness and decreased range of motion around the affected joints. The onset of arthritis can be sudden or gradual. Osteoarthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatoid arthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, septic arthritis, gout and pseudo-gout are some of the different forms of the disease. The diagnosis of arthritis is based on a physical examination, blood tests and radiology. There is no cure for rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. The mode of treatment recommended varies according to the form of arthritis and may include orthopedic bracing, physical therapy, lifestyle changes and in certain cases, joint replacement surgery. Research in arthritis seeks alternative approaches to the management of the condition, such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, low level laser therapy and pulsed electromagnetic field therapy. The topics included in this book on arthritis are of utmost significance and bound to provide incredible insights to readers. It presents researches and studies performed by experts across the globe on the pathophysiology and management of arthritis. This book will prove to be immensely beneficial to students and researchers involved in the study of arthritis.
