Hiya, I usually struggle to get my word count down......but on this question im struggling to get it to 400!!!!
Iv explained about chondrocytes, inflammatory response from synovial membrane, swelling, lack of movement causing ligaments/muscles/ tendons to lose their supportive structure around the joint. That chondrocytes maintain and repair cartilage and that their ability decreases over time and that the bone can form ostephytes..

can someone please give me a pointer to what i may be able to add to bring this up to scratch??

so far that sounds fine so I'd definitely press on there and 400 shouldnt be a problem with the right level of detail. I'd also make sure you tie in your answer to the criteria, since that's what it'd be marked against

I hope this helps
