wear and tear
Osteoarthritis, degenerative disc disease or degenerative arthritis (DA) are the common names of “wear and tear” on joints. This can occur virtually anywhere in your body were two bones come together. Between your bones or between the vertebrae (bones in your back), there is cartilage, or called discs in your neck and back. It is often diagnosed via Xray or other types of imaging. Although some wear and tear can be considered normal with age, obesity or being over weight is a major cause of DA. Knees, hips and your spine are the major weight bearers of your body. Meaning, any extra weight and fat you have effects your hips, your knees, and especially your back. It causes increased stress and expedites degeneration on your joints often resulting in joint replacement.
