Osteoarthritis Treatment

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis, affecting 1 in 10 Canadian adults, especially those over 40. Although it’s often thought of as a degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis is actually a normal part of the aging process.

Osteoarthritis occurs when the cartilage between our joints begins to break down, causing pain and inflammation in the affected joints. Osteoarthritis typically affects the hands, knees, hips, feet and back.

Although there is no known cure for osteoarthritis, there are many effective treatments to reduce pain, improve mobility and keep your joints as healthy as possible.
