Are you suffering from knee pain ?
Is it affecting your mobility and movement ?
You may have Osteoarthiritis
Osteoarthiritis is a common cause of knee pain.
It is due to degeneration of the knee joint. Typically, patients with osteoarthritis may have difficulty climbing stairs, pain worsen on walking longer distance and difficulty in squatting. Occasionally, they may have swelling of the knee and hear a rubbing sound when they move their knees. Signs may include crepitus, joint effusion, joint line tenderness, limited range of motion of the knee and deformity of the knee. This is due to the decrease in knee joint space and formation of bone spurs and cartilage wear-out.
