Osteoarthritis is the most common kind of arthritis.
A diagnosis of OA is usually made based on a patient's history of symptoms and a physical exam.
Research shows people who are active in their own care report less pain and make fewer doctor visits.
One of the earliest OA symptoms is stiffness in a joint when you first wake up.
Treatment usually is simple in the early stages of the disease, and becomes more intense later.
