Your knee is a huge part of who you are. When you think about it, your knees affect everything you do from walking, bending, sitting, standing, etc… When you have knee pain can consume your day and keep you from the things you want and need to do. Often times this pain is due to osteoarthritis. What is osteoarthritis? How do you know if you knee pain is osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis, or OA, is the breakdown, or degeneration, of cartilage and fluid that cushions and lubricates the bones in your joints.
The degeneration allows your bones to rub together, resulting in pain and further wear and tear. Osteoarthritis is a chronic progressive condition—which means that it gets worse over time.
Osteoarthritis can occur in any joint, but osteoarthritis of the knee is the most common type, affecting more than 10 million Americans.1

Causes of knee osteoarthritis
Knee osteoarthritis most often develops slowly and gets progressively worse over time. It’s commonly observed when people are middle-aged and older. But you can develop it at any age, following a joint injury or another disorder.
There are certain factors that increase your risk of developing knee osteoarthritis:
- Age. The older you get, the higher your risk
- Weight. Increased body weight increases your risk. Every pound you gain puts 4 more pounds of stress on your knees
- Injury or overuse. Athletes and people with active jobs are at higher risk
- Genetics. Recent research suggests that knee osteoarthritis is partially caused by your genes
- Muscle weakness. Weakness in the muscles surrounding the knee increases your risk
- Other diseases. Rheumatoid arthritis, hemochromatosis (having too much iron), and acromegaly (excessive growth hormone) increase your risk
