Ost​eoarthritis (OA) is a debilitating disease that affects more than one in 10 Canadian adults – a number expected to rise to one in four by 2040 as the country's population ages. In this chronic condition, cartilage between bones is destroyed, and the fluid that cushions and lubricates joints breaks down and loses viscosity.
