For all you arthritis sufferers out there, I found a great article from the NIH SeniorHealth web site. Although this is geared toward older folks, some of us younger folks suffer from osteoarthritis, too. Here is the introduction:

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis among older people. Osteoarthritis occurs when cartilage, the tissue that cushions the ends of the bones within the joints, breaks down and wears away. In some cases, all of the cartilage may wear away, leaving bones that rub up against each other.

For the complete article, visit the NIH SeniorHealth Osteoarthritis page.
