Arthritis of the knee:
The knee is one of the most used joints in our body which we use to walk, run, climb stairs and in the motion of sitting down or standing up. Arthritis is caused when there is any damage to the soft tissue of the knee joint.
Osteoarthritis is the most common cause of arthritis of the knee. It is a degenerative condition most commonly seen in people aged 50 or above. It develops slowly and pain worsens over time.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto immune disease, the synovial membrane of RA covers the knee joint and begins to swell. This results in knee pain and stiffness. It can impact a range of joints in the body and often affects both the left and right side of the body simultaneously.
At times, arthritis in the knee can develop after an acute injury. This is called post traumatic arthritis. For example, a broken kneecap may damage the knee joint and overtime lead to arthritis in the knee.
