There are many causes for knee pain, the most common of which is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a condition where the weight bearing surfaces of the knee joint wearing away. They are no longer smooth and free running and this leads to stiffness and pain. Eventually the joint wears out to such an extent that the bone of the femur (thigh bone) grinds on the bone of the tibia (shin bone).
If your doctor has diagnosed you with knee osteoarthritis, it is likely that your knee pain can be managed with exercise, analgesics, but ultimately you may require a knee replacement operation. A knee replacement operation involves replacing the knee joint with metal and plastic to give you relief from pain, and improved movement.
