Osteoarthritis is caused as “natural lubricant” cartilage wears out and the rough surfaces of the bones begin to rub against one another leading to the joint becoming painful, stiff and inflamed. OA usually develops after many years of use, which is why it is normally seen as a “wear and tear” condition affecting people who are middle-aged or older and is more common in women than men. A family history of osteoarthritis and a previous injury to a joint can also increase the risk. Being overweight also puts extra strain on the joints and this can be managed by lifestyle factors too.
Common Reasons for Patients seeking help for Joint Pain
- Joint pain during exercise/physical activity
- Stiffness of the joint
- Loss of function in the joint
- Crunching sound or grating sensation in the joint
