Osteoarthritis is also known as Degenerative Arthritis. It results from breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bones. A joint where two bones come together ,the ends of these bones covered with protective tissue called cartilage. In osteoarthritis, this cartilage breaks down, causing the bones within the joint to rub together. This causes pain, stiffness and other symptoms.
