Arthritis is a term that generally refers to any disorder that affects one or more joints in the body. There are more than 100 different types of arthritic disease and conditions. According to the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention by the year 2020, approximately 63 million adults will be affected by some form of this disease. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of joint disease.
Osteoarthritis (OA), also known as degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a chronic disorder of the joint marked by the gradual deterioration of cartilage which can results in the development of bony spurs and cysts at the margins of the joints. OA most commonly affects the hands, feet, spine, and large weight-bearing joints.
People with OA often experience pain or aching, stiffness, swelling and/or decreased mobility of the affected joint(s). Risks factors known to contribute to the development or worsening of DJD include obesity, genetic predisposition, injury or overuse, and the natural process of aging.
Management and treatment of OA can help to reduce joint pain and inflammation, slow disease progression, and improve or maintain maximum functionality. Options for treatment include pain management, physical activity, weight loss, physical therapy, supportive devices, and/or surgery. A qualified medical professional can help to determine the most beneficial course of action for you.
