Osteoarthritis in the wrist is one of the most commonly heard injuries. Osteoarthritis is a form of rheumatism . In fact; it is the most common rheumatic disease of the musculoskeletal system. Two other common forms of rheumatism are: soft tissue rheumatism and inflammatory rheumatism. In 2015, 1.2 million people were diagnosed with 'osteoarthritis' by their GP. The wrist joint was one of the most common joints here. Osteoarthritis is most common in: women, people over the age of 45, people who are overweight (obese), an excessive burden on the body and people in whom osteoarthritis is common in the family.
(Wrist) osteoarthritis is a rheumatic disease of the posture and musculoskeletal system. This is a standalone condition, or it develops as a result of joint inflammation or weak ligaments. In osteoarthritis, humanity often thinks of wear and tear on joints or bones. "My joint is worn out" or "I have a worn out wrist" are often heard complaints from the doctor. This is not entirely correct. It is not a worn out joint, but a change in the joint has occurred.

A bit of theory: a joint is a connection between two bone parts. Cartilage is located against the articular surface of the bone. This cartilage is a smooth tissue that ensures the 'smooth' movement of a joint. In (wrist) arthrosis, this cartilage is deformed; it has become thinner and softer. This causes the joints to move less easily, which is inherent to a painful and stiff feeling in the joints. In this case, the wrist joint.
