An osteoarthritis subtype called hypertrophic osteoarthritis, or osteoarthritis with hypertrophic alterations, is distinguished by the presence of osteophytes or bone spurs at the borders of the joints. This type of degenerative joint disease causes changes in the underlying bone structure and the creation of bony outgrowths as the cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones in the joint gradually wears away. Although it can affect other joints in the body, hypertrophic osteoarthritis typically affects weight-bearing joints like the spine, hips, and knees. The development of hypertrophic osteoarthritis is influenced by a number of factors, including as aging, genetic susceptibility, joint trauma or injury, obesity, and mechanical stress. The goals of treatment for hypertrophic osteoarthritis are to lessen joint function, reduce symptoms, and delay the disease’s advancement. Conservative methods including pain management with pharmaceuticals (like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), physical therapy, lifestyle changes (like exercise and weight loss), and assistive devices (like braces and orthotics) may be combined in this.
