Osteoarthritis of the knee is a common condition that is primarily caused by wear and aging. However, in some cases, it can occur at an early age as a result of a traumatic injury that was not properly treated. This degenerative condition is characterized by the formation of periarticular ossifications, also known as osteophytes, which can cause significant restrictions in movement and disability.

Individuals who are sedentary, older, and those who have a history of joint mechanics or previous injuries are at a higher risk of developing osteoarthritis of the knee. The repetitive use of certain movements or flawed posture can also contribute to the gradual degeneration of the joint.

Symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee include pain, swelling, limping while walking, feelings of resistance in the joint, and cracking noises during activities. To reach a definitive diagnosis, both clinical and radiological methods are used. X-rays can provide a clear picture of any abnormalities in the skeletal profile, while CT and MRI scans can detect abnormalities in cartilaginous tissues.

Chronic Knee Pain Treatment

Rehabilitation programs that are well-designed can help improve the quality of life for those suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee by reducing pain and restoring range of motion to the joint, which can slow the progression of the condition. Improving movement through therapy is fundamental to success in treating this condition. Additionally, patients are recommended to follow certain guidelines to reduce the effects of osteoarthritis such as maintaining a healthy weight, avoiding excessive physical exercise, and maintaining correct posture during both the day and night.
