Osteoarthritis (OA), also referred to as degenerative joint disease and/or degenerative arthritis, is a very common condition that effects the body’s joints. In fact, osteoarthritis is the most common cause of chronic joint pain. It is said to affect about 27,000,000 Americans. With osteoarthritis, joint pain is caused when the cartilage in the joint breaks down. In many cases this leads to bone-on-bone grinding in the joint which causes pain, inflammation, and difficulty using the joint.
