When we talk about osteoarthritis, part of it is lifestyle and part of it is medical treatment as well.
In osteoarthritis the protective cartilage in the joints wears down over time. It’s more common in people over 50 and people who are overweight, but cartilage can wear away in virtually anyone.
Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects many people as they get older, often with their knees.
Do your knees and other joints hurt? If you are over fifty it might be a result of osteoarthritis.
