  1. Do I have bone disease? Arthrosis vs. Arthritis

  2. Arthritis and arthrosis are both conditions that affect the boney joints in the body. Of the 206 bones in your body, it's likely that as you age, some of them, including your ankles, knees, and hips, start to wear down. It's important for people to remember that arthritis does not just happen to "old people".

  3. What is Arthritis? Arthritis is a medical term that describes the inflammation of the joints which causes pain and stiffness in movement. Arthrosis is a normal degenerative condition associated with aging, which affects the cartilage that in time will worn out causing pain, loss of mobility and muscle strength. What is Arthrosis?
