Get to know the science behind what causes the stiff, creaky joints of the most common forms of arthritis and what you can do to prevent it.
The bad backs, elbow pain, and creaky knees so common in older people often aren't just “old age.” In fact, the source of this stiffness plagues many young people as well.

Faust investigate.
