Have you ever experience.....
- Sudden, throbbing pain in your joints when going up the stairs?
- Joints crack & pop easily?
Our joints take a lot of abuse over the years.
That’s one reason up that many elderly have osteoarthritis, when the protective cartilage on the ends of bones wears down.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive joint disease due to failure in repair of joint damage.
This causes pain and stiffness in areas such as the knees, hips and hands, which can make walking,climbing stairs, brushing your teeth and even grasping a doorknob or pen challenging.
Due to pain and swelling, the mobility of joints is restricted.
With ongoing movement, comes excruciating pain, which becomes unbearable even on mild touch in the form of tenderness.
This disease may involve 1 or multiple joints.
