Understanding Osteoarthritis: Causes, Symptoms, Treatment

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease affecting millions. It worsens over time, hindering movement.

Aging, excess weight, and joint trauma are among the risk factors for osteoarthritis.

The disease damages cartilage, the cushioning between bones, leading to pain and stiffness.

Osteoarthritis can affect any joint, but knees, hips, fingers, and the spine are most common.

There's no cure, but maintaining a healthy weight and exercising can help manage symptoms.

Treatment may include pain relief, physical therapy, or, in severe cases, joint replacement surgery.

Osteoarthritis is a serious disease with significant impact on quality of life.

Research on regenerative medicine offers hope for new treatments, potentially slowing or even reversing cartilage damage.
