Osteoarthritis, the most common type of arthritis, is a leading cause of disability.

This results in pain and loss of movement. It is also known as degenerative joint disease, hypertrophic arthritis, and degenerative arthritis, and is most commonly prevalent in older (above 60 years of age) and middle-aged people (between 40-59 years of age).

Increasing age, obesity, overuse of the joint, weak thigh muscles, and genetics are some of the common risk factors.
