If you are feeling stiffness and pain in your joints, mostly during exercise it might be due to osteoarthritis. Other symptoms might include joint swelling and decreased range of motion. The most commonly involved joints are those near the ends of the fingers, at the base of the thumb, neck, lower back, knees, shoulder and hips. Usually, the problems come on over years. It can affect work and normal daily activities but unlike other types of arthritis, only the joints are typically affected. Causes might include previous joint injury, abnormal joint or limb development and inherited factors. The treatment includes exercise, reduction to joint stress, medication and in some cases weight loss. If pain interferes with normal life despite treatment, the patient might have to do a joint replacement surgery.
