Osteoarthritis (OA) is not a single disease but rather the end result of a variety of disorders leading to the structural or functional failure of one or more of your joints.
- Osteoarthritis is caused by inflammation, breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage in the joints. The cartilage is worn down over time. Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic joint pain, and involves the entire joint, including the nearby muscles, underlying bone, ligaments, joint lining and the joint cover.
- Bone cysts can form as the cartilage tries to repair itself. The underlying (subchondral) bone hardens causing these cysts.
- Osteoarthritis can be extremely painful if left untreated and can have an impact on mobility, cause stiffness and inflammation of the joints.
- Osteoarthritis is a progressive disease, signs and symptoms gradually worsen over time and, unfortunately, there is no cure.
