Osteoarthritis is due to degeneration of the cartilage within the knee joint. This is usually due to age and “wear and tear“ but can also be accelerated by injury.
Why does knee osteoarthritis cause pain?
The cartilage cushions the knee joint, allowing you to have both stability and motion. Degeneration leads to inflammation, shrinking, and tears of the cartilage. This can cause pain with weight-bearing or after exercise but may also exist rest as well.
