Managing Knee Arthritis Pain Without Surgery

De-Novo-Cartilage-Repair-KneeAn enormous number of people suffer due to the pain of Osteoarthritis of the knee.   Because of fear about the complexity of knee replacement surgery and the significant pain and downtime involved, most knee arthritis sufferers are searching for information on how to manage knee arthritis pain without surgery.

With Osteoarthritis there is a progressive loss of cartilage within the knee. It typically takes years to occur, but the arthritis eventually reaches the point when the two bones composing the knee are touching one another … a situation most of us refer to as being “bone on bone.”

Osteoarthritis is an inflammatory condition.  It causes inflammation of the tissue that lines our knee — a process we term synovitis.  It is the inflammation of the synovium or the lining which produces most of the pain. Most of the methods we use to treat osteoarthritis of the knee are therefore geared towards decreasing the amount of inflammation within the knee.
