Degenerative Joint Disease Commonly called “degenerative joint disease,” (DJD), osteoarthrosis or osteoarthritis (OA) is the commonest form of arthritis. It is ubiquitous and causes the afflicted joints to deteriorate or “degenerate” progressively, losing articular cartilage, eroding into bone, often accompanied by ligament laxity. The disease affects approximately 27 million Americans…
