          Osteoarthritis of the fingers

          When osteoarthritis develops in a joint, the cartilage becomes irregular, rough and loses its thickness and the bone underneath thickens. The bones at the edge of the joint grow outward, called "spurs", and excess synovial fluid may be produced, causing the joint to swell. This will make it difficult to perform normal tasks and will cause the surrounding muscles to weaken. If severe osteoarthritis is present, the spurs will grind against each other during movement. This can, over time, change the shape of the joint creating a deformity.
