Osteoarthritis Causes & Symptoms

Osteoarthritis Causes & Symptoms

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic (long-term) condition that affects the joints in your body. It occurs when cartilage—the shock-absorbing material that covers the ends of your bones—breaks down. This causes your bones to rub together, resulting in pain, stiffness, inflammation, and sometimes the growth of bony spurs in the joint.

Osteoarthritis Knee

In a healthy knee joint, cartilage between your thigh and shin bones acts as a ‘shock absorber’ to help your knee move smoothly. Knee osteoarthritis occurs when this cartilage and other structures become damaged, causing pain, stiffness, and swelling in your knee.
