The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions your joints wears down over time. It can damage any joint but usually affects those in hands, knees hips and spine.
This condition causes damage to the joints and cannot be reversed. Symptoms of this condition typically gets worse as you age, but there are treatments available such as staying active or maintaining healthy weight to aid in pain management.
