Many factors such as abnormal autoimmune response, genetic susceptibility, environmental or biologic triggers such as a viral infection or hormonal changes contribute to an individual developing this common problem.
Arthritis cannot be prevented but early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can prevent joint damage and disability.
