Have you experienced pain from your knees while walking long distances? Do you easily get tired from walking? Do you get a painful feeling if you attempt to move, or just bend your knees? If so, then you may be suffering from arthritis knee pain.
Arthritis knee pain is a most common form of arthritis, mostly affecting all ages, but is mostly prevalent on adults aged 20 and above. This happens when your body doesn’t get adequate exercise, or you misuse your muscles (I.e. From over-exercising), and in effect, straining your joints. Early symptoms will show swelling or redness, accompanied with continuous pain felt all parts of the affected area. If left unbridled, arthritis knee pain will continue to develop; your joints will begin to weaken and you’ll feel pain and sores all over your body, but mostly on your knees. Continued misuse, or rather, the lack of the employment of your joints may give rise to more serious cases, with some cases leading to inability to use that portion of your body, and sometimes, even death.
Definitely things to be considered.
The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis. This is a joint disease that results in broken down cartilage in the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is another common type. This is signified by pain, redness, stiffness and swelling of the joints. Lupus, fibromyalgia and gout are three other very common forms of arthritis.
Medical treatment focuses on taking medications to reduce the pain, and also treat the affected area. Treatment is normally quicker than physical therapy, but is more expensive, as you’ll need to continuously buy the needed prescriptions to treat arthritis.
