Risk Factor - Repetitive Stress

Repetitive stress on the knees can also be a risk factor for osteoarthritis.  Certain occupations, specifically jobs that involve kneeling or squatting, and excessive walking and lifting are susceptible to knee osteoarthritis.  Carpet installers,  floor layers, dock workers, and shipyard workers are some examples of occupations that are at high risk.
