Scientific meeting on the Knee osteoarthritis at Al-Jalah Hospital – Benghazi, Libya (Activity of our Partner Eva Pharma).
Osteoarthritis, commonly known as wear-and-tear arthritis, is a condition in which the natural cushioning between joints — cartilage — wears away. When this happens, the bones of the joints rub more closely against one another with less of the shock-absorbing benefits of cartilage. The rubbing results in pain, swelling, stiffness, decreased ability to move and, sometimes, the formation of bone spurs.
The most common cause of osteoarthritis of the knee is age. However, several factors increase the risk of developing significant arthritis at an earlier age like Weight, Heredity, Gender, Athletics, and other illnesses like metabolic disorders, such as iron overload or excess growth hormone.
