Hand Therapy MassageRheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that affects the joints of the hands and feet as well as other ball and socket joints in the body. Unlike typical arthritis which is caused by the continuous wear-and-tear of joint use, rheumatoid arthritis affects the lining of the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis causes painful swelling that can result in joint deformity and bone erosion.
