Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is the common chronic condition of the joints. This occurs when the cartilage, the protective tissue around the joints; wears off causing pain, swelling and problems while moving the joint. Osteoarthritis is also called ‘degenerative joint disease or degenerative arthritis.’


Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, but it most commonly occurs in knees, hips, lower back and neck, small joints of fingers, thumb base and big toe. Osteoarthritis occurs mostly in older people but it can also occur in adults of any age.
