Osteoarthritis is the most common degenerative disease of the knee. It occurs when the cartilage that cushions the ends of the joint bones gradually deteriorates. Cartilage is a firm, slippery tissue that allows for virtually friction-free joint movement.
- Symptoms: A lot of pain in the knees, inflammation, redness and little flexibility.
Osteoarthritis, also known as "wear and tear" osteoarthritis, is a common disease in middle-aged people, it is the most common degenerative disease of the knee.
A healthy knee can flex and straighten without difficulty, thanks to a soft, slippery tissue called articular cartilage, which covers, protects and cushions the ends of the bones that make up the knee. Between these bones, there are two C-shaped menisci (cartilage) that act as "shock absorbers" for the knee joint.
Osteoarthritis wears down these cartilage.
Knee osteoarthritis is one of the leading causes of disability in the United States. The development of the disease is slow, and the pain worsens over time. Although there is no cure, there are many treatment options available to help you manage pain, stay active, and lead a satisfying life.
