Changes in the joint


 Arthrosis refers to joint changes resulting from cartilage breakdown surpassing its synthesis.


    • Over time, cartilage may fray, crack, and eventually disappear, leading to bone-on-bone contact.
    • Inflammation may cause swelling and increased heat in affected joints.
    • While cartilage lacks pain receptors, bone involvement can cause pain.
    • Soft tissues like ligaments and muscles around the joint can also be affected, leading to increased pain.
    • Excessive joint laxity may occur, prompting compensatory muscle tightening and further pain.
