Caption: Arthritic hands. Coloured computer-enhanced X-ray of hands suffering severe rheumatoid arthritis. Here affected swollen joints (orange) between carpals, metacarpals, and phalanges finger bones is seen. Joints become ragged and hand deformation is obvious. Rheumatoid arthritis is the second most common arthritic disease (after osteoarthritis). It typically affects joints of the fingers, wrist, feet and hips. Treatment for pain, inflammation and for restricted movement in the affected areas is by use of anti- inflammatory drugs; physiotherapy may help to preserve joint movement.
