This condition occurs when the protective cartilage between the bones starts to wear away, leading to pain, swelling and difficulty moving the joint. It can occur in any joint but typically affects the knees, back, hips, neck, thumbs and big toes.
In the most advanced cases, the cartilage breaks down completely to leave one bone rubbing against the other. The extreme pain caused by this leads many to seek help from a chiropractor for degenerative joint pain.
As well as increased age, risk factors include genes, obesity and weak thigh muscles, as well as joint injury and overuse. Women are also more likely to suffer from the condition.
