Osteoarthritis Knee Pain Treatment
Osteoarthritis, or OA, affects approximately 20 million Americans. Many factors contribute to osteoarthritis including age, weight, occupation and heredity, but the primary cause is excess stress and the resultant “wear and tear” on the knee joint. Symptoms include pain, stiffness, and swelling, and in severe cases it can cause deformities, either varus (bow legged) or valgus (knocked knee).
