What you need to know about osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that causes pain and can limit your mobility. Knee osteoarthritis is the most common form of osteoarthritis. It occurs when the cartilage within the joint is damaged and no longer provides the cushion and lubrication necessary for normal movement.
Early intervention can:
- Expand the treatment options available to you
- Help you maintain or restore your desired activity level
- Reduce your personal long term health care expenses associated with co-pays and insurance deductibles
- Help prevent secondary healthcare challenges like depression that can result from functional limitations
