Caption

Arthritic hand. Coloured digitised X-ray of a hand showing evidence of rheumatoid arthritis. Here, swelling and bone deformation is seen on each finger joint between metacarpal and phalanges bones (centre, at the base of fingers). Rheumatoid arthritis is the second most common arthritic disease (after osteoarthritis). It typically affects joints of the fingers, wrist, feet and ankles, often the hips and shoulders. Treatment for pain and for restricted movement in the affected areas is by use of anti-inflammatory drugs; physiotherapy may help to preserve movement in inflamed joints.
