​There are over 100 different types of arthritis. The most common include osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriatic arthritis (PsA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS), fibromyalgia and gout. Although there are many similarities between the different types of arthritis and the pain they cause, knowing which type you have can make the difference between successful treatment or further debilitation.

The knee is one of the most used joints in the body, whether you’re participating in a sport or just going about a daily task like heading to the shops. For that reason, the knee is one of the most injured parts of the body, with injuries being potentially incredibly painful and often preventing you from going about your daily life. That’s why it’s important you have an understanding of the knee and what can happen to it.
