Diseases of the joints could vary from acute to exceedingly chronic, unbearably painful or simply nagging and uncomfortable. It may be confined to one joint or may affect other parts of the skeleton. It can develop at any age; however, joint diseases are more prevalent in people aged between 40 and 65. Generally, women are at higher risk of developing joint diseases than men. However, it may vary with the type of joint disease. Joint diseases can be categorized into inflammatory joint disease, non-inflammatory joint diseases, and others.
In inflammatory joint disease, inflammation is principal set of symptom while in non-inflammatory joint disease, inflammation may present to some extent but it is not essential feature. Other joint diseases include congenital or hereditary abnormalities and secondary joint diseases (such as tumors of joints).
