Osteoarthritis is the most common chronic joint condition.
A joint is where two bones come together. The ends of these bones are covered with protective tissue called cartilage. With osteoarthritis, this cartilage breaks down, causing the bones within the joint to rub together. This can cause pain, stiffness, and other symptoms. Other causes of joint damage include past injury, such as:
– torn cartilage
– dislocated joints
– ligament injuries
– others like joint malformation, obesity and poor posture.
Osteoarthritis occurs most often in older people, although it can occur in adults of any age. Osteoarthritis is also called degenerative joint disease, degenerative arthritis, and wear-and-tear arthritis.
Osteoarthritis can occur in any joint. However, the most commonly affected areas of the body are hands, fingertips, knees, hips, spine, typically at the neck or lower back. As osteoarthritis becomes more advanced, the pain associated with it may become more intense. Over time, swelling in the joint and surrounding area may also occur. Recognizing the early symptoms of osteoarthritis can help you to better manage the condition.
