Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative joint disease that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of bones wears down over time, causing pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility.

What causes osteoarthritis?
  • Aging
  • Overuse or injury to the knee joint
  • Genetics or family history
  • Obesity or being overweight
  • Previous knee surgery
Ways to prevent it
  • Maintaining a healthy weight to reduce the load on the knee joint
  • Regular exercise to strengthen muscles and improve joint flexibility
  • Avoiding high-impact activities that put stress on the knee joint
  • Wearing appropriate footwear for physical activities
  • Avoiding smoking, which can damage cartilage and worsen OA symptoms
Osteoarthritis Symptoms
  • Pain or stiffness in the knee joint, especially after periods of inactivity or overuse
  • Swelling or tenderness in the knee joint
  • A crunching or grinding sensation when moving the knee joint
  • Reduced range of motion in the knee joint
When to See the Doctor
  • Persistent knee pain or stiffness that does not improve with rest or over-the-counter pain medications
  • Swelling or redness in the knee joint
  • A fever or other signs of infection
Treatment for Osteoarthritis
  • Medications such as acetaminophen or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to relieve pain and reduce inflammation
  • Physical therapy to improve joint flexibility and strength
  • Assistive devices such as knee braces or crutches to reduce stress on the knee joint
  • Injections of corticosteroids or hyaluronic acid to reduce pain and inflammation
Osteoarthritis Surgery
  • Arthroscopic surgery can be done to repair or remove damaged cartilage or bone fragments
