About Early Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes the joints to become painful and stiff. It is the most common type of arthritis in the UK.

The severity of symptoms can vary greatly from person to person, and between different affected joints.

Symptoms can be mild and may come and go, whereas others can experience more continuous and severe problems. Symptoms can include pain, tenderness, stiffness, and reduced movement in the hip and knee.
