The joint inflammation is a disorder affecting the musculoskeletal system of the body. It attacks the joints, responsible for giving mobility to the bones of different parts of the body, especially in the hands, knees, hips and spine.
What happens is that the cartilage progressively wears away. When this happens, the bones begin to rub against each other causing pain and inflammation.
This type of inflammation is increasingly common in the population. In Spain alone it affects more than seven million people and increases every year more.
