Degenerative changes caused by joint arthrosis primarily affect the articular cartilage; once it is damaged, bone spurs may grow on the edges of the joint, leading to the development of osteoarthrotic changes.
Secondarily, the ligaments and soft tissues around the joint may also be damaged by joint arthrosis. The damage leads to joint deformation, limitation of mobility, and pain. During joint arthrosis, the knee, hip and shoulder joints are the most frequently affected ones.
Ageing, congenital changes in the joints, traumatic changes, overexertion, metabolic effects and other factors contribute to the development of joint arthrosis.
