One of the most common long-lasting joint conditions is definitely osteoarthritis. A joint is where two bones come together. The ends of these bones are covered with protective tissue known as cartilage. With osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down, causing the bones to rub against each other, causing a lot of pain.
