Osteoarthritis describes joint wear that goes beyond the normal age-related extent. This leads to a loss of cartilage in the joint. In principle all joints can be affected, which leads to a loss of normal joint function and is associated with pain and restricted mobility. The causes of osteoarthritis are diverse and must be diagnosed. First of all, it is important to filter out which causes are reversible or can be directly influenced therapeutically.

This includes for example:

  • Übergewicht → Gewichtsreduktion

  • Rheumatische Erkrankungen → medikamentöse Therapie

  • Achsfehlstellungen → ggf. Korrektur der Achse

  • Muskuläre Defizite → gezieltes Krafttraining

The most common causes of osteoarthritis are overwork in previous lifetimes (job, competitive sport) and a family disposition (genetic). The primary goal for all forms is to maintain pain-free joint function and to delay or stop the progression of osteoarthritis.
