Understanding Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative disorder characterized by cartilage loss. This is the most common condition affecting joints with an increase in prevalence with aging. The joints most commonly affected are the knees, hips and shoulders. Appropriate nutrition, anti-inflammatory medication, muscle strengthening and surgery when all else fails are usually successful.
