Osteoarthritis (OA) is a prevalent form of arthritis and a leading cause of disability, especially among older adults. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease characterized by the breakdown of cartilage in the joints, leading to pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.
1. Prevalence: Osteoarthritis is one of the most common forms of arthritis, affecting millions of Americans. While it can occur at any age, it becomes more common as people get older.
2. Risk factors: The risk of developing osteoarthritis increases with age, and other factors such as obesity, joint injuries, family history, and certain joint deformities can also contribute to its development.
3. Joint involvement: Osteoarthritis most commonly affects weight-bearing joints, such as the knees, hips, and spine, as well as the hands and fingers.
4. Symptoms: Common symptoms of osteoarthritis include joint pain, stiffness, tenderness, reduced range of motion, and the presence of bony enlargements (called bone spurs) around the affected joints.
5. Diagnosis: Osteoarthritis is typically diagnosed based on a combination of a patient's medical history, physical examination, and imaging tests, such as X-rays or MRI scans.
6. Management: While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, various treatment options are available to manage symptoms and improve quality of life. These may include lifestyle changes, exercise, physical therapy, pain medications, and in some cases, joint injections or surgical interventions.
7. Public health impact: Osteoarthritis has significant implications for public health and healthcare costs in the USA, as it can lead to chronic pain, reduced function, and disability, resulting in substantial economic burden.
