What is Osteoarthritis? [...]Read More
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that affects more than three million people each year in the United States. Osteoarthritis in the hip or knee can be debilitating conditions that are extremely painful and can often lead to other chronic health conditions if not treated properly. Symptoms of Osteoarthritis usually peak when the weather is colder or when patients engage in physical activities.
Osteoarthritis is typically caused by the aging process and strenuous physical activity. Osteoarthritis has a tremendous impact on the knee joints as the knee is also susceptible to regular wear and tear. Osteoarthritis pain that starts in the knees is not usually felt by patients in their hips until the condition has begun to impact the nerves. Symptoms of Osteoarthritis in the back can include shooting pain in the hip, groin, and thigh area.
