Osteo Artritis

Were you looking for information on Osteoarthritis? Osteo artritis is a common misspelling of osteoarthritis.
 
Osteoarthritis is a common joint disease in which cartilage has worn away, allowing bones to rub together. It is one of the most frequent causes of physical disability among adults, especially those ages 65 or older. More than 20 million Americans are affected by it.
 
The exact cause of the disease is unknown, but things like joint injury and obesity may be contributing factors. Common symptoms of the condition include joint pain and limited movement. Sometimes this condition causes your joints to feel stiff when you haven't moved them in a while, such as after riding in the car. Over time, you could develop problems moving joints -- and sometimes disability -- if your back, knees, or hips are affected.
