Joint pain due to osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is by far the most common cause of recurrent joint pain. Joint pain due to osteoarthritis has now been classified as a serious disease as it has been established that joint inflammation can lead to secondary diseases in other parts of the body.
What causes osteoarthritis?
It is not completely proven why a person suffers from osteoarthritis. Injury to the joint is a common cause, but heredity, environment, obesity and other causes can also lead to osteoarthritis in various joints in the body. Common symptoms are stiffness, pain and difficulty moving normally.
To understand what causes osteoarthritis and joint pain, you need to know how the joint is structured. The ligaments in the joint are covered by a thin protective cartilage. The cartilage is like a very thin sponge which, when healthy, is elastic and shock-absorbent. The joint also contains synovial fluid with a high concentration of the body's own hyaluronic acid, which makes the fluid thick and viscous and acts as a lubricant. Together, the cartilage and synovial fluid allow the bones to move smoothly without rubbing against each other.
The cartilage cells are broken down in a continuous process and the body is constantly producing new cartilage. If the cartilage is damaged or the joint is overworked, hyaluronic acid production in the synovial fluid is also affected, resulting in a thin, watery synovial fluid that no longer lubricates the joint. These two imbalances can cause the cartilage surface to become damaged and uneven. The cartilage begins to break down and eventually the cartilage may disappear completely, leaving the bones to rub against each other and the onset of osteoarthritis.
The intake of hyaluronic acid supports the joint's hyaluronic acid quality. This improves the joint environment and allows the body to produce its own new high-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid. With a better quality of joint fluid, lubrication is improved.
