Were you looking for information about Osteoarthritis? Osteoarthitis is a common misspelling of osteoarthritis.
By 2030, approximately 70 million people (or about 20 percent of the U.S. population) will have passed their 65th birthday and will be at risk of developing osteoarthritis -- a common joint disease in which cartilage has worn away, allowing bones to rub together. Growing older is the most significant risk factor for this condition.
Some common symptoms of osteoarthritis include joint pain and limited movement. Things that you can do to help prevent it include maintaining a healthy weight; eating a well-balanced, healthy diet; exercising regularly; and preventing joint injuries.
Treatment methods include exercise, weight control, pain-relief techniques and medications, and, in some cases, surgery. The specific options your healthcare provider recommends will be based on factors unique to your particular situation, such as the severity of the condition.
