Osteoarthritis: An Overview and More

Cartilage is a strong and flexible tissue that acts as a shock absorber for the joints. As you move, it provides a smooth, low-friction surface on which your bones glide. If the cartilage is damaged or worn, as in arthritis, it causes pain, swelling, and limited range of motion in the joint. Cartilage is also found in the ears, nose, and airways.
