Greetings! Thank you for your questions.
From your questions, we understand your concerns regarding osteoarthritis. For your information, osteoarthritis commonly occurs in the weight-bearing joints of the knees, hips and also spine. It also affects the large toe, fingers, thumb and neck.
Osteoarthritis usually does not affect other joints unless excessive stress, previous injury or an underlying disorder of cartilage is involved. The affected movements and muscles can be evaluated by doctors during physical exam such as the limited range of motion.
