Osteoarthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease. It may result from past injuries or frequent wear and tear or any other diseases of the joints. Inflammation occurs at times, there may be stiffness progressing to generalized soreness affecting the knees, hip, ankle and spine.

A well balanced diet consisting of correct amounts of nutrients are essential. Reduction of weight in obese individuals can be useful in reducing the pain. Excess weight in obese individuals can put pressure on the joints thus aggravating the situation.

Intake of Calcium and Vitamin D is essential for people suffering from osteoarthritis. Intake of antioxidants like Vitamin C, beta carotene and Vitamin E can reduce the risk of progression of osteoarthritis.

Avoid heavy or strenuous exercise that can subject the joints to increased risk of degeneration. Coffee and tea are not preferable to people suffering from osteoarthritis the reason being that it may hinder with the absorption of calcium. Although conclusive reports have not been suggested about the health benefits of decaffeinated tea or coffee, studies have suggested that green tea can improve the bone density and can reduce the risk of osteoarthritis. However there is no evidence suggesting that decaffeinated coffee can bring desirable results for patients suffering from osteoarthritis.
