What is osteoarthritis?Charlotte, NC Chiropractor: Hip Pain

According to the Arthritis Foundation the definition is as follows: “Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the oldest and most common forms of arthritis and is a chronic condition characterized by the breakdown of the joint’s cartilage. Cartilage is the part of the joint that cushions the ends of the bones and allows easy movement of joints. The breakdown of cartilage causes the bones to rub against each other, causing stiffness, pain and loss of movement in the joint.”

It is easy to understand how this would cause significant pain as the cartilage wears away and bone rubs on bone.
