As we get older, almost all of us have aches and pains.
Your hips might hurt when you get out of a chair. Your knees may be stiff when you wake up in the morning. You may feel a twinge in your shoulders when you raise your arms.
All of these things are signs you have osteoarthritis.
In the back of your mind, you wonder if and when it will turn into a full-blown disability that will mean you won’t be able to do the things you love…or even care for yourself and live independently.
