WHAT IS OSTEOARTHRITIS:
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. The cartilage within a joint begins to break down and the underlying bone begins to change.
• OA affects over 32.5 million US adults.
• An estimated 22.7% (54.4 million) of adults had doctor-diagnosed arthritis, with significantly higher age-adjusted prevalence in women (23.5%) than in men (18.1%).*
• By the year 2040, an estimated 78.4 million (25.9% of the projected total adult population) adults aged 18 years and older will have doctor-diagnosed arthritis,2 compared with the 54.4 million adults in 2013–2015.
• Two-thirds of those with arthritis will be women.
• By 2040, an estimated 34.6 million adults (43.2% of adults with arthritis or 11.4% of all US adults) will report arthritis-attributable activity limitations.**
