Osteoarthritis is a jointdisease that mostly affects cartilage. Cartilage is the slippery tissue thatcovers the ends of bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage allows bones to glideover each other. It also helps absorb shock of movement. In osteoarthritis, thetop layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away. This allows bones under thecartilage to rub together. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, and loss ofmotion of the joint. Over time, the joint may loose its normal shape. Also,bone spurs may grow on the edges of the joint. Bits of bone or cartilage canbreak off and float inside the joint space, which causes more pain and damage
