Hi there!

Osteoarthritis refers to degenerative arthritis (inflammation) of the joint. Management is largely dependent on the joint involved and the severity and may range from conservative to surgical/ joint replacement. You could read more about the condition online.
Hope this information is helpful.

Take care!
