Osteoarthritis / Osteoarthrosis / Degenerative Disease

Osteoarthritis is a disease that leads to the degeneration of the cartilage that cushions bones in joints. As the cartilage degenerates, the bone becomes inflamed and painful and the joints become stiff and tender. Most often, osteoarthritis affects the hands, feet, knees and spine.
