OA usually develops in knees that have been injured, experienced trauma, or infection.  The medical field does not yet completely understand the exact causes of osteoarthritis, but being overweight and not exercising are believed to make the condition worse.

The knee is a complicated joint.  An injury or change in anatomy will alter the way it moves and works.  Age, gender, obesity, injury, genetics, and overuse all play a part.
