Your Osteoarthritis is a pain, but what exactly is it?
Osteoarthritis is one of the most common forms of arthritis in the knee, and it’s a condition that can affect any joint in the body.16,17
Knee Osteoarthritis is a progressive condition that causes the cartilage between the bones in your knee to wear away – often called ‘wear and tear’.17 Over time, the cushioning becomes so thin that the bones touch and rub against each other, which causes inflammation and knee pain.18
What causes Osteoarthritis?
Wear & Tear
The term ‘wear and tear’ is often
used hand-in-hand with
It describes the damage to the knees natural cushioning cartilage, which
can progress and worsen over time with more activity and higher impact
Did you know that wear and tear also occurs because of inflammation?16,19
An imbalance of high numbers of ‘bad’ proteins in the joint keeps it
inflamed, adding to the pain and wear.20
A Traumatic Event
Sometimes knee Osteoarthritis starts as a result of a traumatic event.
Damage to the knee joint during an accident can start or bring on Osteoarthritis some time after the event.13 Or damage to the surrounding bone or soft tissues can affect the knee joint indirectly by causing different pressure or strain on the joint and its tissues, which might in turn cause Osteoarthritis.17,19
