what is osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis (OA), also referred to as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. OA happens when the cartilage in the joints wears away and causes bones to rub against one another. OA can lead to stiffness and pain. OA can affect any joint in your body. One in two adults will develop a form of OA in their lifetime.
