Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. While it can affect any joint, it is particularly common in knees. Osteoarthritis is degenerative wear and tear of the cartilage, resulting in bone rubbing on bone. It occurs most often in those aged 50 and older. Osteoarthritis can be treated with a number of different non-surgical or surgical therapies and remedies.
- Age. Osteoarthritis is more common in those over 50
- Weight. More pressure on the joints speeds up wear and tear
- Repetitive Stress, i.e. jobs that require frequent kneeling and squatting
- Stiff, swollen knee joint (osteoarthritis may affect 1 or both knees)
- Pain and swelling that worsens after sitting or resting
- Knee that stiffens, locks, buckles or feels weak during movement
