Damage to cartilaginous tissues can also be caused, for example, by age-related changes or as a result of sport injuries. A person often begins to feel severe pain with various movements of the legs or arms. The joints of the lower limbs are more likely to damage, because they experience more serious strains compared to the joints of the arms.
