What is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis refers to a degenerative disease affecting the joints due to cartilage loss which occurs over a period of time. Symptoms of osteoarthritis includes pain in the joints, swollen and stiff joints. Apart from age, heredity factors or previous trauma and injury, studies have shown that women are more prone to osteoarthritis than men.

Why Women?

Male and female musculoskeletal structures, bone density and volume differs. Knee cartilage present in women were found to be lesser than that of men, according to a study using analysis of sequential magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In addition, anatomy of joint, hormones and history of trauma to the knees plays a key role in the higher risk of osteoarthritis in women.
