Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) also known as degenerative arthritis is a condition typically affecting, hands, hips and knees. The spine is often involved. In the past it has been typically referred to as ‘ageing’ however recent research reveals that OA is a separate disease entity and not just about getting old.

New therapies are now being tried and tested for this common condition affecting up to 2 million in the population. Symptoms may include joint pain, tenderness, stiffness, locking, and sometimes an effusion. The mainstay of treatment is exercise, physiotherapy and weight control. Anti inflammatory tablets and paracetamol also have a role.

There is evidence that injections with hyaluronic acid can be beneficial to your joints if you are affected.

Ask your doctor for more information on degradation of joints, including articular cartilage and subchondral bone.
