When you think of arthritis, inflammation is a natural part of that thought process. Inflammation is a process in which the body’s white blood cells and chemicals help protect us from infection and foreign substances such as bacteria and viruses.
In some cases, however, your immune system can set off an inflammatory alarm response when there is nothing foreign for it to fend off. With these diseases, which are known as autoimmune diseases, the body attacks its perfectly healthy parts. The body recognizes the normal tissues as foreign tissues and reacts to them.
