Is Osteoarthritis A Disease? - Quiz

This quiz will be given before and after the presentation. It is to test your knowledge of some basic facts about osteoarthritis.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    True or False:  Osteoarthritis most often affects the wrists and elbows.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Osteoarthritis most often affects the weight-bearing joints such as the knees, hips, and spine. It can also affect the hands and fingers, but not the wrists and elbows as stated in the question. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Who is most likely to experience osteoarthritis?

    • A.

      A man over 65

    • B.

      A woman over 65

    • C.

      A 25-year-old distance runner

    Correct Answer
    B. A woman over 65
    Explanation
    Osteoarthritis is more common in older individuals, and women are more likely to develop it than men. As age increases, the risk of developing osteoarthritis also increases. Therefore, a woman over 65 is the most likely to experience osteoarthritis compared to a man over 65 or a 25-year-old distance runner.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    True or False:  You can develop osteoarthritis by being physically inactive or physically overactive.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Physical inactivity and physical overactivity can both contribute to the development of osteoarthritis. Being physically inactive can lead to weak muscles and lack of joint support, increasing the risk of joint damage and osteoarthritis. On the other hand, physical overactivity and repetitive stress on the joints can also cause wear and tear, leading to osteoarthritis. Therefore, both extremes of physical activity can be detrimental to joint health and increase the likelihood of developing osteoarthritis.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    True or False:  Exercise, weight control, joint care, and pain relief are all treatment and management options for osteoarthritis.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Exercise, weight control, joint care, and pain relief are all treatment and management options for osteoarthritis. These options help in reducing pain, improving joint function, and slowing down the progression of the disease. Regular exercise helps strengthen the muscles around the joints, weight control reduces the stress on the joints, joint care involves protecting the joints from further damage, and pain relief measures help in managing the discomfort associated with osteoarthritis. Therefore, all these options are valid for the treatment and management of osteoarthritis.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    True or False:  With proper treatment, osteoarthritis is curable.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that causes the cartilage in the joints to break down over time. While there are treatments available to manage the symptoms and slow down the progression of the disease, there is currently no known cure for osteoarthritis. Therefore, the statement that osteoarthritis is curable is false.
