Osteoarthritis is the most commonly found chronic condition afflicting the joints of the body where the cartilage between the joints breaks down. The chances of it developing increases with age with a greater proportion occurring in people over 60. However, it can also develop in those younger, particularly those who have other joint injuries or repetitive stress in the joint area. Symptoms include soreness in the joints (particularly pain after either extended bouts of movement or inactivity), stiffness that increases with rest (such as in the morning after a night's sleep), as well as bony enlargements or swelling in the joints.
Here are a selection of apps that focus specifically on the osteoarthritis version of arthritis including overall comprehensive guides, tips & advice regarding symptoms, treatments, and dietary prevention, as well as a selection of exercise & rehabilitation programs.
