Osteoarthritis (OA) develops over time due to many factors. There are no known ways to prevent OA. But there are steps to help keep your bones and joints healthy:

  • Maintain a healthy weight to reduce stress on your joints.
  • Get regular exercise. Strong muscles protect the joint from too much stress.
  • Learn the proper technique for exercise and sports.

Healthy bones and joints may slow the onset OA or lower the severity.
