There are different causes depending on the type of arthritis. The most common types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis: This is caused by normal wear and tear throughout life; this natural breakdown of cartilage tissue can be exacerbated by an infection or injury to the joints.
