    Degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a progressive, noninflammatory disease characterised by degenerative pathologic changes in articular cartilage and its related components. 

    There is no exact cause of DJD, although there is a well documented sequence of events once the degeneration is set up. 

    Degenerative joint disease does not have a clear correlation with clinical findings. This meaning, that someone may have very little DJD but alot of pain.. and another person may have alot of DJD and no pain at all. However, function of the spinal joints may be deminished.
