Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease and the most common disorder in the world. It is a result of a complex interplay of multiple factors, including joint integrity, genetic predisposition, local inflammation, mechanical forces and cellular and biochemical processes. There is no cure for OA at the moment.
