Osteoarthritis, which is also referred as Wear-and-Tear Arthritis and Degenerative Arthritis, is commonly caused in the weight bearing joints such as knees, lower back, hips etc. Osteoarthritis is typically caused by damage caused to joint cartilage. In our body, the ends of the bone joints remain covered with a slippery tissue called cartilage. Further, our bones have certain watery elements which take care of these cartilages. Due to osteoarthritis, these bones start to lose the watery element which causes friction in our bones thus causing harm to cartilages, due to which these cartilages lose their power to protect the end of the bones.

Though age is one of the main factors in Osteoarthritis, however researches show that there are many other causes of Osteoarthritis as well:

Sometimes it happens that we tend to use a particular joint too much than others. For example, knee joint. Knee joint can be overused by too much cycling or too much usage of stairs. In these cases, that particular joint bears tremendous pressure which causes Osteoarthritis.

3.Family history – This is one of the most common factors for this disease. If someone in your family has this disease, it tends to affect the future generations also.
