Degenerative joint disease occurs due to daily wear and tear on weight-bearing joints. When the cartilage surrounding these joints becomes damaged, bone-on-bone grinding occurs and begins to cause problematic symptoms.
The natural aging process is a fundamental cause of degenerative joint disease. This disease can be asymptomatic, meaning that no symptoms will be felt. In more severe cases, symptoms can be described as aches and sharp pains, joint stiffness, and decreased mobility. Numbness and tingling in the arms and/or legs have also been associated with degenerative joint disease.
