Osteoarthritis

 

Osteoarthritis - otherwise known as degenerative joint disease - is the most common type of arthritis. It most commonly occurs in the weight bearing joints of the hips, knees, and spine. However, it can also disturb the fingers, thumb, neck, and large toe.

Osteoarthritis tends to affect women more often than men. Most people that are 60 years or older have osteoarthritis to a varying degree. However, it has been diagnosed in individuals in their 20s and 30s, as well.

Symptoms often develop gradually and include: 

  • Joint aching and soreness.  
  • Pain after overuse or after long periods of inactivity.
  • Bony enlargements in the middle and end joints of the toes- which may or may not be painful.
  • Joint swelling and fluid accumulation.


An individual’s chances of developing osteoarthritis are based on several factors including:


- Heredity
 
- Obesity 
- Injury 
- Joint Overuse 

If you’re suffering with osteoarthritis, please visit your doctor to see what treatment options are available for you.
