Everyone Develops Osteoarthritis…………….Eventually!

 It usually affects people in later stages of life, and by age 75, virtually everyone will develop some symptoms of Osteoarthritis.  However, OA occurs at a slightly higher rate in women than in men. This occurs since OA generally develops earlier in women and many forms, such as Menopausal OA, only affect women. Overall, in the U.S., the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimate that approximately 27 million Americans (1 out of every 6 people) have Osteoarthritis.  Globally, Osteoarthritis occurs throughout the world in all races and has been common throughout history.
