Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting about 10% of Canadian adults, especially those over age 40. Although it is actually a part of the normal aging process, it may start earlier in some individuals depend their joint condition and type of daily activities.
Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage between our joints begins to break down, causing pain and inflammation in the affected joints. Osteoarthritis typically affects the hands, knees, hips, feet and back.
Because it is a normal aging process, there are no treatment regimens to reverse its process. Although, there are many effective treatments to reduce pain, improve mobility and keep your joints as healthy as possible.
