Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes the joints to become painful and stiff. It is the most common type of arthritis in the UK.  Osteoarthritis occurs when there is damage in and around the joints that the body cannot fully repair. It's not clear exactly why this happens in some people, although your chances of developing the condition can be influenced by a number of factors, such as your age and weight.

It is commonly thought that osteoarthritis is an inevitable part of getting older, but this is not quite true. You may in fact be able to reduce your chances of developing the condition by doing regular, gentle exercises and maintaining a healthy weight.
