Osteoarthritis of the Knee Program

Osteoarthritis of the knee is caused when there is damage of the cushioning in the knee joint called cartilage. This damage leads to bone friction causing severe pain and stiffness in the knee joint.

Major factors that cause osteoarthritis are age, obesity, injury, infection, and heredity. The symptoms are pain, swelling, warm joint, stiffness, and creaking sound with movement.

Treatments:

  • Exercise, physical and occupational therapy.
  • Weight loss.
  • Wearing braces.
  • Injections of steroids.
  • Pain medications.
  • Hyaluronic acid injection (reduces pain by increasing joint lubrication).
  • Surgery.

    Surgery must be considered only when all alternatives fail. Osteoarthritis can be cured completely in most instances with proper medical care.
