Are you 1 of the 2.1 million Australians who suffer from osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease which causes structural changes in joints. It often presents with pain, with or without stiffness and swelling around the joint, and can result in a significant loss of function.
As our population continues to age, so does the incidence of people diagnosed with osteoarthritis. 30% of people aged 65 or older report joint symptoms and there is approximately $1.6 billion spent on treating osteoarthritis every year.
