Information and resources from MaxorPlus® for Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis
Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that is caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage of one or more joints. Cartilage is a protein substance that serves as a "cushion" between the bones of the joints. Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis. It can involve any joint, but usually concerns hands and weight-bearing joints such as hips, knees, feet and spine.
