About Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is generally seen as a condition in men and women after 40, but OA is a chronic disease which affects an estimated 27 million Americans. OA occurs when there is a deterioration of cartilage between joints. This causes the bones to rub up against one another, causing stiffness and pain. There are various causes of OA; one is associated with aging and the "wear and tear" of life, and another which develops following a specific cause, such as an injury or obesity.

About Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a systemic inflammatory disease which manifests itself in multiple joints of the body and can cause pain, swelling, and redness. RA usually affects the lining of the joints but can also affect other organs. RA affects an estimated 1.5 million adults.
