Dear valued customers

Today we will share you a definition of Osteoarthritis and next time we will share you more information about factor, symptoms & diagnosis and etc.

Osteoarthritis is a joint inflammation that results from degeneration of cartilage, bones, muscle, and synovia. As cartilage breaks down, the ends of the bones get thicken; the joint may lose its normal shape, and the ends of bones may begin to rub together, eventually causing harsh pain.

Osteoarthritis mainly affects weight-bearing joints (like the knees). Progressive cartilage degeneration of the knee joints can lead to deformity and outward curvature of the knee, and the patient may develop a limp.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting 8 out of 10 people over the age of 55 and mostly people over the age of 75.

The condition can be caused by aging, heredity, obesity and injury from accidents or disease. Work-related repetitive movement and habitual joint injury may also contribute to the development of Osteoarthritis.

** The change of degeneration. Degeneration means aging like the hair turns gray and wrinkles appear on the face as gets old.
