Let's all speak up for Osteoarthritis!
A project that gives voice to patients and healthcare professionals about the hopes and challenges hidden behind the osteoarthritis. The aim is to reach 10,000 comments and transform them into a 10k euro donation which will be given by Laboratoires Expanscience to two associations engaged with osteoarthritis, in order to encourage scientific research in this field.

What is OA
OA causes pain and stiffness in the joints, especially in the knee, hip, and hands1. The pain and stiffness levels vary due to many enviromental factors (weather, altitude, etc.) and level of physical activity. This is why it is always advised for patients with OA to practice some low-impact exercise. The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) recently declared OA a serious disease2, not only because it causes morbidity, but also because it is a progressive lifetime condition that can be disabling in its most advanced stages3,6.
