Hello. Thank you for your message.
Degenerative joint disease, commonly referred to as “osteoarthritis”, is a condition in which the shock-absorbing cartilage that cushions joints become inflamed, breaks down and is eventually lost. Without treatment, degenerative joint disease usually becomes worse over time and can begin to affect all of the major joints in the body, including those in the spine, hands, hips, and knees. Getting an accurate diagnosis and proactively addressing your osteoarthritis is very important and can often eliminate or alleviate debilitating symptoms, preventing the development of secondary conditions.
