Osteoarthritis is a chronic complaint of the joint cartilage and bone, often thought to result from wear and tear on a joint. Joints appear larger, are stiff and painful, and usually feel worse with increased use throughout the day. As a result, the bone beneath the cartilage changes and develops bony overgrowth. The tissue that lines the joint can become inflamed, the ligaments can loosen and the muscles around the joint can weaken, resulting in pain and movement limitations when using the joint.
