Osteoarthritis, also known as a degenerative joint disease, can manifest as an inflammation of one, or several joints. It can affect any and all joints, including the hips, big toes, the neck, and the lower back and is the most common type of arthritis. Associated with a breakdown of cartilage in joints, it primarily shows up in the weight bearing joints of the hips, knees and spine. It doesn't affect other joints unless an injury of overuse of the joint has occurred. Most people over age 60 have Osteoarthritis to some degree, What are the symptoms of Osteoarthritis? Osteoarthritis symptoms are swollen and painful joints, soreness after inactivity or prolonged use, and fluid accumulation. Osteoarthritis can also develop in individuals who adopted repetitive movements in a certain joint. For example, footballers’ often develop Osteoarthritis in their knees while tennis players’ develop Osteoarthritis in the elbow. Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease that strikes the elderly because of its degenerative nature. In this way, it is unlike rheumatoid arthritis, which progresses rapidly in young adults. What causes Osteoarthritis?  A wearing down of the protective cartilage that rests between two adjoining bones causes Osteoarthritis, bringing intense soreness and discomfort. When this occurs, the joint becomes stiff and loses its elasticity. This makes it more susceptible to damage. As the cartilage deteriorates, tendons and ligaments stretch, causing pain. As the condition continues to deteriorate, the bones themselves may rub together exacerbating that pain. Finger and knees may become knobby as a result. Crystal deposits in the cartilage can also contribute to Osteoarthritis too, as it can create cartilage degradation. Heredity, obesity, and injury can all be risks factors for Osteoarthritis, but the disease can strike any of us at any time with very little warning. All races appear to be equally affected, and for a small group of sufferers, Osteoarthritis becomes debilitating, permanently altering the victim's quality of life.
