Osteoarthritis, i.e. the wearing of a joint, is due to factors including damage to the articular cartilage and causes pain and restricts movement. It can cause fluid in the joint, as well as nodules, and severely restricts the joint’s movement.
Osteoarthritis in the knee or hip is a very common problem. Initially, physiotherapy, physical activity and medication help. In cases where the pain becomes worse and disrupts everyday life, the only option left is surgery.
