Overview 

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common chronic diseases, with an estimated overall prevalence in the general adult population of 11% and 24% for hip and knee OA, respectively OA is age related, with manifestations often not occurring until middle age. In elderly people, OA is the most common cause of disability, including pain and limitations of activities and participation.2 As life expectancy is increasing the number of people living for prolonged periods with severe OA is expected to grow.
