Workshop: Do You Have Knee Osteoarthritis? 9 April 2016

minif-1

 

Are you at risk for osteoarthritis?

Certain factors are known to increase your risk of knee osteoarthritis, and some of these factors are beyond your control.

  • Old Age
  • Family History
  • Obesity
  • Poor Posture
  • Certain Occupations
  • Previous Injuries

Knee osteoarthritis is a permanent and progressive joint disease.

It affects cartilage, the slippery tissue that covers the ends of your bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage allows your bones to glide over each other and absorbs the shock of movement.

In osteoarthritis, the top layer of cartilage breaks down and wears away, forcing the bone to rub against bone, causing pain, swelling and loss of motion.

Osteoarthritis never happens overnight, it typically worsens gradually over time. At first, you may notice pain in the morning or after you’ve been inactive for a period of time. Your knees may hurt when you climb stairs, stand up from a sitting position, or kneel. Many patients also report pain after walking for too long.

What can you do to treat your degeneration?

Contrary to popular belief, surgery is not the only option.

Join us at this interactive discussion with our partner doctor and physiotherapist to find out more.
