The two most common are osteoarthritis OA (from bone wear and tear) and rheumatoid arthritis RA (an immune disorder).
In 2010-2012, 49.7% of adults 65 years or older reported doctor-diagnosed arthritis.
By 2030, an estimated 67 million Americans ages 18 years or older are projected to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis, according to the American College of Rheumatology.
