Degenerative joint disease occurs due to the wear and tear of weight-bearing joints. When the cartilage surrounding these joints becomes damaged, bone on bone grinding occurs.
The natural aging process is a fundamental part of degenerative joint disease. This disease can be asymptomatic, meaning no symptoms will be felt. For more severe cases, symptoms can be described as aching, sharp pain, joint stiffness, and decreased motion. Numbness and tingling in the arms or legs have also been associated with degenerative joint disease.
