Osteoarthritis is a joint disorder characterized by swelling. A joint is an area of the body where two different bones meet. Joints are found in the knees, hips, fingers and other areas of the body that bend to ease movement. There are many types of arthritis, one of which is called osteoarthritis.

Even if you have osteoporosis and suffer from pain, exercise can help with rehabilitation. It is never too late to start doing exercise. Consult your doctor and see what type of exercise is best for you and start your exercise program today.
It does seem incredible that a disease that can be diagnosed and can be successfully treated is not a major health issue. We must do all we can to prevent, treat and ultimately cure this painful and life restricting disease.
