Dealing with osteoarthritis


Osteoarthritis does not only occur at the knees or hips but also the finger joints and the joint at the base of your thumb or big toe.

As the most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) affects 20% of people over the age of 50 globally. Also known as degenerative joint disease, OA can also affect people in their 20s or 30s.

Often times, the female gender is more susceptible to OA, especially after the age of 45. For men, however, it occurs more frequently before they reach 45.
