Were you looking for information about Osteoarthritis? Ostearthritis is a common misspelling of osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis, a type of joint disease, is the most common type of arthritis, affecting over 20 million people in the United States. This disease occurs when the cartilage that pads the bones in a joint begins to become ragged and wears away, causing bones to rub against each other. Osteoarthritis typically occurs most often in the hands, neck, lower back, or the large weight-bearing joints of your body, such as knees and hips. Possible treatment options include exercise, medications, or surgery.
