About Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease resulting from breakdown of cartilage-the shock absorber between bones. Bones under the cartilage rub against each other causing :-

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Loss of motion
  • Cracking sound
  • At later stages:-
    • Joint loses its shape
    • Bony surface shows spurs due to calcium deposition
    • Bits of bone break off
    • Broken bits of bone float inside joint space
    • More pain and damage to the joint

You may compare it to a sliding window which moves on window tracks because of rollers located at the bottom of the window panel. After a passage of time, the rollers start eroding and as a result the window stops moving until we start using oil as a lubricant. Here the rollers are the cartilage, the track and windows are the bones and the oil is the fluid between two bones (called synovial fluid).
