What is Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis. Arthritis is a general term that means inflammation of the joints. Osteoarthritis is associated with a breakdown of cartilage in joints and can occur in almost any joint within the body. It commonly occurs in the weight bearing joints of the hips, knees, and spine. It can also affect the fingers, thumb, neck, and large toe.
Osteoarthritis usually doesn't affect other joints unless you have a previous injury, excessive stress, or an underlying disorder of the cartilage is involved. Cartilage, is a firm, rubbery material that covers the ends of bones in normal joints. Its main function is to reduce friction in the joints and serve as a shock absorber.
Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage in a joint to become stiff and lose its elasticity, making it more susceptible to damage. Over time, the cartilage may wear away in some areas, greatly decreasing its ability to act as a shock absorber. As the cartilage deteriorates, tendons and ligaments stretch, causing pain. If the condition worsens, the bones could rub against each other.
