Osteoarthritis is one of the more common form of arthritis, and nearly 30 million people in this country are suffering from osteoarthritis according to the Arthritis Foundation. So why is this disease happening in such high frequency? Here are a few factors that are known to cause the disease, especially among seniors and elderly. First factor is the age of the individual. Wear and tear is one of the known factor of osteoarthritis, and elderly individuals tend to have a high probability of getting Osteoarthritis because of this. Next is obesity. Unfortunately, obesity rate is increasing and the excess weight is putting stress on the body, especially on the bones and joints. If a senior or elderly has been obese during the adult life, the wear and tear factor is more prevalent. Another possible factor could be injury or overuse. For example, Kobe Bryant, one of the best athletes in the world, had knee arthritis problem that jeopardized his playing career. Lastly, genetic factors as well as muscle weakness could both contribute to the risk for osteoarthritis. Despite all such factors, it does not mean that the disease is inevitable to happen for seniors and elderly.
