Knee Therapy

Knee Pain from OA

 

Osteoarthritis, is also known as wear-and-tear arthritis.  It is a condition where cartilage, the natural cushioning between your bones, erodes.  When this occurs, the bones of the joints rub against one another with less cartilage to absorb the shock. The rubbing causes pain, swelling, stiffness, decreased ability to move and sometimes the formation of bone spurs.

There are many forms of arthritis – osteoarthritis is the most common.  Young people can get it, however the chance of developing osteoarthritis rises after age 45.   More than 27 million people in the U.S. have osteoarthritis.  The knee is the most commonly affected area.  Also, osteoarthritis is more common in women than men.
