Maybe you have already had a number of knee injections and take a great deal of anti-inflammatory medications but you still are feeling the knee pain. And now you are thinking about arthritis knee surgery-knee replacement surgery.

Many doctors give you something to take away or relieve the pain but there are a number of others who are attempting to approach the pain in a different way. If osteoarthritis is the only diagnosis you have that affects your knees then there’s some things you can do or try. Assuming you have been cleared by your doctors to exercise your knees that is. When you look at x-rays of the knees you can see that there is not much support anymore for the knees and many think their only option is knee replacement surgery. Knee replacement surgery is expensive and only lasts for between 10 and 15 years or so. Plus you will have plenty of exercises you will need to do after the surgery and physical therapy.

The doctors who’re not in favour of exercise for the knees are in a manner contributing to more health issues such as obesity and diabetes from inactivity and lack of exercise and the accompanying depression from loss of mobility etc.

You probably know right now whether you will be capable of doing some exercises or if your doctor insists that you not do them and you disagree, seek out a second opinion.

The areas of exercise you might consider once you have been cleared by your doctor are resistance training, stretching and endurance exercise.

Resistance training strengthens the muscles surrounding the knees in a safe range of motion which restores the capacity to absorb shock. This will help the stress placed on the knee joints and reduce or relieve the pain or part of it. Start slowly and when you’re warmed up.

You want to stretch your thigh and hamstring muscles about 15 minutes a day or so. This will help your knees become more flexible and likewise reduce the stress on your joints and relieve pain. Be careful when stretching that you do not overdo it and make sure your body is warmed up first.

Endurance exercise-this may well be the hardest or easiest to do of the three. This would include low impact activities like walking, cycling, and the elliptical machine at your local health club or gym unless you got one at home. Do these for about 15 to 30 minutes continuously. This will also help to relive stress on your arthritic knees and give you some arthritis pain relief.

Make sure you do the exercises carefully because you do not want to make the pain in your knees worse. If done properly many have avoided getting arthritis knee surgery (knee replacement surgery.)

Many people know the fact that in the surgery, their knee gets replaced completely. But very few of them are conscious of the unicompartmental knee replacement operation. This is the technique where only a portion of the knee that is damaged or injured is replaced with an artificial joint. Arthritis may, sometimes, be limited to a specific side of the knee, a unicompartmental approach is discussed in such cases. In such a knee replacement surgery, a prosthesis is hammered and cemented to fit the biological environment and get placed within the body perfectly.

An individual suffering from arthritis has to go through several medical sessions, including MRI scans and X-rays. The prosthetic joints are prepared using plastic and steel for the inmates before their total knee replacement surgery on the basis of the results obtained. This is the latest invention in the medical field as far as the knee replacement treatment techniques for arthritis are concerned.
