Osteoarthritic knee pain often gets in the way of things you want to do - limiting your ability to move, causing discomfort and leading to joint stiffness. Knee pain is caused by many different things - but one leading cause is damage or injury to the ligaments, tendons, cartilage or bone of the knee joint. This sort of damage may be caused by a sudden injury, which over time can often result in Osteoarthritis.
Knee pain may be acute (short lasting) or chronic (lasting for years). The knee pain that sufferers of Osteoarthritis experience is the chronic type. However there are several ways to help manage it; you can find out more in our article, Tips to Manage Knee Osteoarthritis.
