How do I know if I have Osteoarthritis?
Do you sometimes feel pain specifically around the joints? Have you noticed tenderness at your joints? Maybe you experienced the occasional swelling or stiffness? Does the pain increase with movement? Have you recently been diagnosed by a healthcare professional?

It is one of the most common types of arthritis and can appear as swelling and tenderness. There is currently no cure for osteoarthritis but the wear and tear can be slowed down significantly or even stopped all together with the right therapy and lifestyle choices.
