Osteoarthritis of the Knee
The joints of our body are cushioned with a material called hyaline cartilage (Fig.1). With age, normal wear and tear of the cartilage takes place in most joints. Injury to a joint or repetitive stress are also factors. The loss of cartilage can cause disability or deform the joint and bone spurs may develop. Over a period of time cartilage wears away and the thickened bones begin to rub against on another and wear away. This condition is known as osteoarthritis, or degenerative arthritis.
