Osteoarthritis is the most widespread form of arthritis, commonly called the “wear and tear” arthritis, taking many years to develop, but not necessarily caused by aging itself.

It is especially important to pay attention to this disease, not only because it can be disabling, but also because probably the most important single lifestyle factor that prevents major fatal diseases is exercise. It is crucial that we keep our joints in as good condition as possible, so that we can be as active as we choose in order to maintain healthy cardiovascular systems and many other vital systems in our bodies.
