Arthritis affects approximately 3 million people or 15% of the population in Australia, with osteoarthritis being one of the most common forms of the disease. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that can cause morning stiffness, pain, weakness, inflammation and decreased motion of the joints due to a degeneration of the cartilage within the joints. The incidence of osteoarthritis increases with age and although it is more common in the elderly it is not limited to that age bracket alone.
