Resource: Osteoarthritis Knee – Management and Treatment
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a condition involving the breakdown of articular cartilage in your joints. Articular cartilage is rubbery tissue that covers the edges of bones to allow joints to move easily. As the disease develops, the articular cartilage becomes much thinner, or it can wear away completely. This can lead to thickening of the edges of the bones, and the bones may develop bony “spurs”.
