Osteoarthritis treatment

What is osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects the joints of the body, particularly the cartilage lining of the joints which help to allow fluid smooth movement. Joints that have osteoarthritis have reduced levels of cartilage lining causing them to feel stiff and painful. This in time can lead to muscle weakness and tightness if you reduce your activity due to the arthritis symptoms.
