Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that occurs when flexible tissue at the ends of bones wears down. This is the most common form of arthritis, affecting millions of people.
WHAT IS OSTEOARTHRITIS?
Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint in your body, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips, and spine. Osteoarthritis symptoms can usually be effectively managed, although the underlying process cannot be reversed. Staying active, maintaining a healthy weight and other treatments may slow progression of the disease and help improve pain and joint function.
