Osteo Arthritis, Knee problem and Remedies

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that mostly affects the cartilage. Cartilage is a slippery tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage allows bones to glide over each other. It also helps absorb shock of movement. In osteoarthritis, the top layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away, and allows bones under the cartilage to rub together.
