WHAT IS KNEE
There are more than 100 types of arthritis, but the Femur (thigh bone)
most common is osteoarthritis, also known as OA or
degenerative joint disease (DJD).
Knee osteoarthritis occurs when the rubbery cartilage
that covers the ends of your bones breaks down.
Normally, the cartilage provides a cushion between the
bones, allowing them to glide smoothly over each other.
When the cartilage deteriorates the bones may rub
against each other, making it difficult and painful for the Diseased
knee joint to move properly. Your physician may refer to cartilage
this as “bone-on-bone” osteoarthritis.
The exact cause of knee
osteoarthritis is unknown, Tibia (shin bone)
