os·te·o·ar·thri·tis

(ŏs′tē-ō-är-thrī′tĭs)
A form of arthritis that is characterized by wearing down of the cartilage of the joints.

osteoarthritis

Often referred to as degenerative joint disease, its specific cause is unknown. A current theory is that enzymes are released that break down cartilage in the joint. Cartilage repair is an ongoing process, but in those with osteoarthritis, more cartilage is broken down than is repaired.
