The join cartilage in freely moving joints may degenerate over time, leading to loss of joint movement and in many cases, pain. This condition is characterized by thinning of cartilage, buildup of fluid within the joint, and the formation of bony outgrowths outside the joint.

This leads to inflammation of the joint membrane, continued cartilage destruction and inflammation, and abnormal joint function.
