Do your joints feel stiff after rest and wears off fairly quickly once you get moving? Or when you move the joint or at the end of the day, the pain tends to be worse?This might be due to osteoarthritis. It is the most common joint disorder. It is due to ageing and wear and tears on a joint. Osteoarthritis of the knee happens when the joint’s natural cushioning system breaks down in the knee. Without this cushion, bones can come into contact with each other, causing pain, stiffness, and a loss of flexibility. The keyindications of osteoarthritis are pain and occasionally stiffness in the affected joints. Symptoms may vary for no obvious reason. Or you may find that your symptoms vary depending on what you’re doing.


As osteoarthritis worsens, bony spurs or extra bone may form around the joint. The ligaments and muscles around the joint might become weaker and stiffer.Osteoarthritishappenssimilarlyin men and women before age 55. It is more common in women after age 55. Other factors can also lead to osteoarthritis.

  • Osteoarthritis tends to run in families.
  • Being overweight increases the risk ofosteoarthritis in the hip, knee, ankle, and foot joints.
  • Fractures or other joint injuries can lead to osteoarthritis in future.
  • Jobs that involve kneeling or squatting for more than an hour a day, or involve lifting, climbing stairs, or walking increase the risk for osteoarthritis.
  • Playing sports that involve direct impact on the joint like football, twisting like basketball, or throwing also increase the risk for osteoarthritis.

Medical conditions that can lead to osteoarthritis include:

  • Bleeding disorders
  • Disorders which block the blood supply near a joint and lead to bone death
  • Other types of arthritis
