Bone Diseases: Arthritis




Arthritis is a disease that affects an estimated 52.5 million adults in the United States. But, Dr. Luis Rodriguez, Primary Care Sports Medicine Physician with Miami Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Institute, affirms that number may actually be underestimated, because a lot of people can have the disease and are not symptomatic.
The expert describes arthritis affects the cartilage in the joints. It’s a disease that primarily and predominantly affects the covering of the bone.
That cartilage breaks down and degenerates when arthritis occurs, the doctor explains.
