Some occupations such as farmers and construction workers are more likely to have hip osteoarthritis because their daily movements can cause premature wear of this joint.
Overweight increases the risk of having osteoarthritis due to increased mechanical stress on the affected joint. The lack of physical activity decreases blood supply to the muscles and causes a change in the cartilage. Having more than one person in the family with osteoarthritis can be a factor.
Rhizarthrosis, also known as thumb osteoarthritis, affects the joint between the metacarpal of the fist and the wrist bone. This joint allows the thumb to perform a series of movements, such as moving up, down or through the palm, as well as the ability to pinch.
