Arthritis In the Knee Joint? Now You Can Have a Pain Free and Active Life
There are three basic types of arthritis that may affect the knee joint.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of knee arthritis. OA is usually a slowly progressive degenerative disease in which the joint cartilage gradually wears away. It most often affects middle-aged and older people.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory type of arthritis that can destroy the joint cartilage. RA can occur at any age. RA generally affects both knees.
Post-traumatic arthritis can develop after an injury to the knee. This is similar to osteoarthritis and may develop years after a fracture, ligament injury, or meniscus tear.
Our physiotherapists can come to see you at home and give you exercises that help strengthen the knee as well as advise you on knee braces, which help you to walk and play sport without pain. One particularly good brace is the Donjoy OA Assist Knee Brace, which can be bought by clicking here.
Completing exercises as directed by your physiotherapist and wearing a knee brace will help keep you pain free and able to lead an active life.
