Knee pain every morning, knee pain all the time, Don't wait for it to go away on its own.
Knee pain, swollen knee, stiff knee, or misshapen knee, are you experiencing any of these symptoms?
If so, you may have knee osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis of the knee occurs when the soft bone tissue between the knee bones, which serves as a cushion and support for weight-bearing and smooth movement, is worn down by repetitive use or in people aged 45 years and older. Normally, the body can repair this soft bone tissue on its own. However, in cases where the knee has been used extensively or the person is over 45 years old, the body’s ability to repair and regenerate this tissue decreases, and the tissue begins to degenerate, resulting in joint bone rubbing and inflammation, leading to pain and stiffness that may impede normal daily activities.
The presence of intermittent knee pain, stiffness, and progressive deformity may indicate the deterioration of the knee joint due to weakened cartilage.
Treatment for knee osteoarthritis typically involves a multifaceted approach that requires an accurate diagnosis by an orthopedic specialist. When the diagnosis confirms knee osteoarthritis and surgical intervention is deemed appropriate, joint replacement surgery is often recommended due to its high success rate and safety. Such surgery should be performed by an orthopedic surgeon with expertise in joint replacement procedures, and post-operative rehabilitation by a physical therapist who specializes in knee osteoarthritis recovery is necessary for optimal outcomes.
The surgical intervention of knee replacement is considered an effective and safe treatment modality for managing osteoarthritis of the knee joint.

Specifically, experienced orthopedic surgeons and skilled physical therapists are essential for successful knee replacement surgery and rehabilitation.
