What is Osteoarthritis?

Osteoarthritis or OA is a joint disease that mostly affects the cartilage.  Cartilage is the tissue that covers the ends on bones in a joint. Almost any joint or area in the your body can be affected by progressive and debilitating Osteoarthritis.  Osteoarthritis differs from Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritic, Gout amongst others.   

Here is what happens in OA;  When healthy, cartilage allows bones to glide smoothly over one another and acts as a shock absorber.  Your “normal” knee also contains a small amount of fluid called synovial fluid. This synovial fluid is a thick, gel-like solution that cushions and lubricates the joint–much like oil lubricates the engine of your car. 

In osteoarthritis, the synovial fluid that normally protects the joint loses its lubricating properties and “dries up" allowing the cartilage to break down and wear away. This is like running your car with little or no oil. As you attempt to use your knee(s), there is not enough lubrication causing the bones to grind together resulting in pain, swelling, stiffness and the joint continues to wear out. This is a vicious cycle and can lead to bone-on-bone rubbing and excruciating pain. Pain pills do NOT lubricate the joint or fix the problem. They simply mask the pain so you do not feel the pain as your joints continue to deteriorate. The eventual repercussions of this are obvious INCLUDING ending up in joint replacement surgery or addiction to pain medications and the associated impacts on your daily life.
