Osteoarthritis(ah-stee-oh-ar-thr-i-tis)**
        
 
OsteoArthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It relates to the changes in cartilage and bone of joints. The changes could lead to pain, stiffness, swelling and limitations in mobility. Obesity, joint injury, and muscle weakness are some of the risk factors for OsteoArthritis. OsteoArthritis can affect any joint, but most commonly it occurs in knees, hips, lower back and neck. Sometimes, small joints of the fingers, the base of the thumb and the great toe can be affected by it. As many as 21 million people in the United States have OsteoArthritis. Some of them may even be without symptoms.
