I am a middle school student doing a project on the topic of healthy living. A portion of my project is discussing a health issue that concerns the greater public and I choose osteoarthritis and was hoping you could answer the following questions. What is osteoarthritis? How does somebody develop osteoarthritis? What are symptoms of osteoarthritis? What treatments are there for osteoarthritis? What may increase the chance of developing osteoarthritis? If you could also include any other information you believe may be useful that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time and please respond. Thank you so much!!
