Causes of arthritic conditions include:

Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is a condition which affects the lining on the end of bones. The cartilage becomes worn and no longer allows smooth movement of the joint. The bony surfaces may touch, causing a grinding feeling. When this happens, pain, stiffness, swelling, and functional disability can result. Treatment options include splinting, cortisone injections, medication, and surgery.

Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease of the tissue (synovium) that lines the insides of joints. Synovium normally produces a slippery fluid that lubricates the joint. With this condition, howerver, the synovial lining is abnormal. It becomes thicker and secretes abnormally large amounts of poor quality fluid which also contains destructive enzymes that can dissolve bone, cartilage and tendons. The result is a joint that is inflamed, stiff and deformed.

Trauma-Related Arthritis
Trauma, such as a severe fall or accident may cause premature cartilage breakdown, severe pain and disability.
