What is wrist arthritis?

Wrist arthritis is a condition which affects the joints in the wrist. There are two types of arthritis: rheumatoid arthritis, which is caused by the body’s immune system attacking itself, sending antibodies to the lining of the joints; and osteoarthritis which is a result of the degeneration of joint cartilage.

Causes

There isn’t a definite cause of arthritis, but it can sometimes be passed down in the family genes.
