What is Osteoarthritis of the knee?
Osteoarthritis, also known as degenerative joint disease, is the most common type of arthritis. With osteoarthritis, the cartilage starts to wear away or breakdown. Without cartilage, the bones rub together resulting in pain, swelling and decreased knee joint mobility. In most individuals this happens over time, especially for those over the age of 50.
Contributing factors are:
- Advancing age (wear and tear)
- Previous joint injury
- Being overweight
- Muscle weakness surrounding the knee
- Misaligned joints
