Arthritic Knee

Arthritic Knee

Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent kind of arthritis.

What are the symptoms of knee osteoarthritis?

The knee pain associated with OA generally takes time to develop.  The knee joint can become swollen and stiff so you might have trouble straitening and bending your knee.  Symptoms are usually worse in the morning and pain may increase following weight-bearing activities like going up and down stairs, walking, or kneeling.

Your knee joint may feel weak, lock, or buckle.
