Osteoarthrosis (OA) is a very prevalent degenerative joint disorder. The aim of this review is to provide a critical perspective on information published about OA, unraveling myths and building concepts that will improve our knowledge and management of this pathology. Pain appears as the main symptom of symptomatic OA, but current evidence shows that radiological changes may not accurately reflect the clinical status of the patient. The education of patients about healthy lifestyle habits and the management of their pathology and their own pain, reinforcing adherence to exercise, should be essential aspects in any treatment.
