You Don’t Have to Settle for Osteoarthritis Knee Pain
It’s time to find the right treatment option for you
Talking to our doctor is the best way to start exploring your treatment options.
And when you do, keep in mind:
Pain affects everyone differently
The severity of your osteoarthritis (OA) as it appears on an X-ray may not reflect the amount of pain you feel. Some people with OA that appears mild on an X-ray may feel a great deal of pain. Others, whose X-rays show severe OA, may feel less pain. Your doctor is relying on you to give a clear description of how your knee feels.
Osteoarthritis is caused by more that just cartilage loss
In knees with osteoarthritis, the cartilage protecting the ends of the bones gradually deteriorates, joint fluid loses its shock-absorbing qualities, and bones may begin to rub against each other – all of which may cause the knee pain you’re feeling.
