Osteoarthritis (Knee)

What is it?

Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis in the knee and involves bone-on-bone rubbing of the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone).

Why do I have it?

“Wear and tear”. The natural cushioning between joints, called cartilage, has worn away. This causes bones within a joint to rub together causing inflammation and pain. Age, genetics, repetitive stress and gender are contributing factors to OA.

When does it hurt?

Daily movement involving flexion/ extension of the knee causes the bones to rub together and can cause varying pain in individuals.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

Staying active is a great way to counteract some symptoms of osteoarthritis. Managing OA pain will often require a combination of options. Talk with your doctor or visit us to find a pain management combination that works for you.
