Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis and ls often referred to as degenerative disease because it is caused by the breakdown of cartilage. In a healthy joint, the ends of the bones are covered with smooth and healthy cartilage. In osteoarthritis, the cartilage in between the joint is worn away, causing narrowing of the joint and jagged, irregular spurs at the edges of bones, which can cause achiness, stiffness, soreness, and limited range of motion.

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and is characterized by pain limited functioning in those patients affected by it. The diagnosis is made using a combination of a patient’s symptoms, physical examination findings and plain film radiographs, or x-rays. Osteoarthritis can occur at any age but is more common in after middle age, and in patients that have previously injured the affected joint or who are overweight. Pain is typically worsened by activity or overuse and relieved by resting; many patients require medications to help relieve their symptoms.
