Osteoarthritis (OA) is a type of arthritis that occurs when the flexible tissue at the ends of bones thins and wears down.
It is a very common joint disease, affecting an estimated 3 million Americans. It is one of the most frequently cited causes for disability in older people. Symptoms vary greatly depending on the person and the severity of arthritis, but the most universally common symptom is joint pain and decreased mobility.
While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are treatment options available to reduce pain and improve joint function.
