What should I know about osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis develops as everyday wear-and-tear begins to damage the articular cartilage. Articular cartilage is found at the ends of all bones inside a joint, where it allows them to glide smoothly when you move.
As articular cartilage breaks down, it slowly disappears, and bones start to rub against one another. That’s when you develop pain, inflammation, and limited joint mobility. Your body also responds to the irritation by developing bone spurs, which add to your pain and further limit your ability to move.
