  • Osteoarthritis (OA)

    Wear and tear of the joint cartilage over time. Risk factors include repetitive joint movements, and carrying heavy loads for many years.

    An inflammatory disease affecting multiple joints, especially in the hands and feet. The cause is autoimmunity (body's immune system attacking itself).

Related serious diseases

  • Decompression sickness

    Decompression sickness (also called "the bends") refers to problems caused by rapid decrease in the surrounding pressure (either air or water). This causes gases to shift dangerously out of the blood stream. It most commonly occurs during scuba-diving, when rising to the surface happens too quickly. Rarely, it can happen in airplanes, typically in military pilots travelling at high rates of speed through upper and lower atmosphere layers.
