Osteoarthritis of the Knee

March 9, 2010

Most people are familiar with arthritis and its various symptoms, but there is less mainstream understanding of the specific types, such as osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and can occur in any joint in the body, although osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the most frequent. Some of the common symptoms include pain, loss of flexibility and bone spurs

Like many diseases, there is not a single cause, but doctors suspect that it is a combination of aging, heredity, muscle weakness and other factors. Unfortunately, there is no cure for the osteoarthritis, and it will worsen over time. However, several treatments can provide temporary pain relief.
