Osteoarthritis also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs most often in older people. This disease affects the tissue covering the ends of bones in a joint (cartilage).
Exercising is, however, crucial for those with arthritis. It reduces joint pain, improves flexibility and strength, combats fatigue and gives you the energy to do the things you enjoy.
Injury prevention can be defined as measures aimed at preventing or reducing the severity of bodily injuries during recreational/sports-related activities.
A joint is an articulation (junction) between 2 or more bones in the body. Muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, and other soft tissue structures hold the joint in position.
