Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and affects millions of people in the whole world.
As OA progresses, the cartilage will continue to break down. The bone spurs at the side of joints. The tissue that lines the joint will become inflamed, and it could produce extra synovial fluid, causing swelling.
Grades of Osteoarthritis:
Cartilage breakdown has begun
HA becomes less viscous, elastic and concentrated; joint pain becomes more severe with movement and at rest
Joint space has narrowed; cartilage degrades more rapidly; synovial fluid decreases, increasing friction and pain during movement
Treatment for different stages of Osteoarthritis:
Increased exercise; weight loss
Exercise; weight loss; pain relievers; steroid injection; HA injection
Surgery partial or total knee replacement
