Osteoarthritis, also known as “wear and tear” arthritis, occurs when the cartilage that cushions and protects the ends of your bones gradually wears away. This leads to pain and stiffness that worsens over time, making it difficult to do daily activities.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It develops slowly and most often occurs during middle age.
Although there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there Dr O’Hearn offers many treatment options available, surgical and nonsurgical, to help manage pain and keep people staying active.
