Knee Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your knee joints. It happens when the cartilage — the cushion between the knee joints — breaks down. The primary symptoms of knee arthritis are pain, swelling, and stiffness. Any joint in the body may be affected by the disease, but it is particularly common in the knee.
Knee arthritis can make it hard to do many everyday activities, such as walking or climbing stairs.
- For mild arthritis, exercises and medication is prescribed.
- For severe, knee arthroplasty (Joint replacement) is recommended.
