  • Knee Osteoarthritis Treatment in Hyderabad


Osteoarthritis is the inflammation of bones of the joints that happens due to wear and tear of cartilage.Knee osteoarthritis is often a progressive and irreversible degenerative process. Gradual onset of knee pain, stiffness and swelling are typical symptoms of knee osteoarthritis.

Osteoarthritis of the knee is more common in older individuals and it may happen in younger individuals too. It is a leading cause of disability in people over age 50. Sometimes, it can be hereditary. For others, knee osteoarthritis can result from injury or infection or even from being overweight.

Osteoarthritis leads to :

  • imageBreak down of the cartilage in the joints or
  • imageGrowth of abnormal bone spurs called osteophytes

The osteoarthritic process is gradual, accompanied by on and off symptoms that eventually worsen over several years. An arthritic knee has thinned, damaged or missing cartilage in the joint. As knee osteoarthritis progresses, the patient may experience diminished range of motion of the knee, or ability to bear their own body weight.
