Stage 4 Knee Osteoarthritis – Severe

September 25, 2017

Stage 4 – Severe

The pain is severe.  Walking anywhere hurts.  This is the most advanced stage of knee osteoarthritis.  There’s not much cartilage left, if any.  There’s very little fluid remaining in the knee.  The joint space has narrowed to the point where an x-ray will show bone-on-bone.  The legs may be bowed or pigeon-toed depending on what side of the knee is most impacted.  The remaining treatment options all involve surgery.   Joint replacement is common.
