While the term arthritis usually signifies a condition of the elderly and inactive, it is not surprising that an increasing number of young athletes present with early onset arthritis. Professional athletes suffer repeated direct impact & injury as well as excessive joint wear and tear, especially those participating in high-contact sports like football, rugby, hockey, hurling, etc, all resulting in degenerative changes of the articular cartilage surface.
A joint is made of two bony surfaces each covered by a layer of cartilage that acts as a cushion in-between and synovial fluid to keep the joint lubricated and allow it to move ever so smoothly.
Inflammation and degeneration of the articular cartilage is like rubbing two rough surfaces against each other.
