BREAKING DOWN – Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is caused by wear and tear due to excess weight, activity levels, injuries, genetics, certain bone conditions, and time. It can become painful, causing tenderness and stiffness in the affected joints. It can also drastically impact one’s mobility and range of motion at the joint.

Osteoarthritis treatment frequently includes pain medications and exercise. Exercise can help strengthen the areas around the affected joints, reducing pain and inflammation. In more severe cases, joint replacements may be performed, such as a total knee replacement or a hip replacement
