OA Pain

Want to learn more about osteoarthritis?

The final stages of OA occur when bone rubs against bone, which can cause excruciating pain and disability. You or someone you love may already be familiar with that firsthand.

OA pain can also be caused by other things like:

  • Bone stress fractures, from a healing process that increases stress on the joint
  • Synovitis, where your joint tissue is inflamed and fluid may build in the joint
  • Ligament damage, affecting the tissues that connect your bones together

Find out more about bone spurs, why the muscles that support joints weaken and other things you may not realize about OA.

Next time, we’ll tell you about cutting-edge research that could possibly lead to a replacement for hip replacements.
