Arthritis (Osteo) NEW!

  • What is osteoarthritis (OA)?
  • Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. The aches and pains of this type of arthritis can be easy to dismiss as normal aging, but the chronic pain and disability can often prevent people from living a full life.
    OA is caused by breakdown of cartilage in joints, and by bone changes at the edges of joints. Cartilage is the elastic material that covers and protects the ends of bones where they meet in joints such as the knee and hip.
    Osteoarthritis causes pain and swelling in one or more joints. Although OA can affect any of the joints in the body, it most commonly affects weight-bearing joints such as the hips, knees, feet and spine, or the hands. Osteoarthritis can affect any joint on either side of the body. This is different from rheumatoid arthritis, which affects the whole body and causes problems on both sides of the body (e.g., both hands) equally.

    The risk of being diagnosed with OA increases rapidly after a person reaches 45 years of age. After age 65, women are twice as likely as men to be affected by OA. It is associated with considerable amounts of lost working time and may contribute to early retirement.
