Osteoarthritis of the Knee

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common joint disease that affects knees, hands, hips, and a few other areas where bones meet. OA of the Knee is the most common form of OA, which makes a lot of sense since a considerably large amount of body weight and pressure is forced down on your knees every day. It is a long-lasting disease that tends to get worse over time. The cushioning tissue, or cartilage, in the knee joint slowly wears away and the thick fluid that helps lubricate the knee joint, called synovial fluid, becomes thinner and doesn’t work as well to protect the joint.
