In life, often there is a time when we experience pain in our joints. Most of the time we resort to quick remedies in the sheer expectation of immediate relief. However, if we are experiencing joint pain regularly, then it is certainly time for a check-up. Joint conditions, such as Osteoarthritis, which become chronic over a period of time, require screening. A degenerative Osteoarthritis, is a common chronic condition of the joints, mostly occurring in the knees hips, lower back and neck, finger joints and bases of thumb and bid toe. 

Although osteoarthritis occurs in people of all ages, it is most common in people older than 65. Common risk factors include increasing age, obesity, previous joint injury, overuse of the joint, weak thigh muscles, and genes. Common symptom of osteoarthritis include sore or stiff joints – particularly the hips, knees, and lower back – after inactivity or overuse.
