There are many different types of arthritis, but osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form. Also known as degenerative joint disease (DJD), it is caused by “wear and tear” of the joints and can result in considerable chronic pain, which can then lead to disability. Some of the risk factors for developing OA include obesity, muscle weakness around the joint, repetitive activity, and previous joint injury. The pain associated with OA is caused by an erosion of cartilage, narrowing of the joint space, and deformity of the bone within the joint; and the most common sites of the body to develop OA include hands and fingers, the big toe, hips, knees and spine. If you experience pain in your joints, it is important to discuss this with your doctor. Once diagnosed, the goal of treatment is to minimize pain and to help you maintain independence in performing your everyday activities.
