Non-serious osteoarthritis relates to cartilage breakdown in the joint which may cause pain and inflammation.

Joint deterioration can be caused by factors such as ageing, the body’s wear and tear, past joint injuries, body weight, family history or female gender.

Inflammation is the body’s natural way of starting the healing process. Symptoms of acute inflammation include pain, swelling, heat, redness or function loss.
