Osteoarthritis is the degeneration and breakdown of cartilage that leads to inflammation in a joint. Pain develops from the arthritic inflamed joint and can occur on a chronic persistent basis but it can also be aggravated by flare-ups associated with activity. As the cartilage wears away there is less cushioning in the joint to protect the ends of the bones from impact and other stresses associated with activity. The naturally occurring fluid in the joint (synovial fluid) also changes with arthritis and loses its lubricating and cushioning properties due to the inflammation and cartilage breakdown products that alter the chemical environment within the joint.
