Why is Arthritis Common in the Knees?

Osteoarthritis of the knee is a common form of arthritis. This kind of arthritis can be hereditary or can be the result of a number of external factors. The cause of your arthritis of the knee largely determines the path of treatment you should take to eliminate or diminish painful symptoms. A few common causes include:

  • Age and general wear and tear
  • Weight, or excessive pressure on joints caused by weight
  • Heredity or inherited bone complications
  • Gender: women age 55+ are more likely to develop osteoarthritis in the knees
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Athletics and injuries
  • Other illnesses such as a metabolic disorder or excessive growth hormone

How to Quickly Ease Arthritis in the Knees.

There are a number of short-term solutions to alleviating knee pain caused by arthritis when you need to. Turn to these simple treatments if you require additional pain-relief. Always consult with your doctor before adding a new regiment to your treatment plan.

1. TENS Therapy

TENS therapy is a great way to quickly ease arthritis pain in the knees from the comfort of your home. Simply, place the gel pads on the affected areas and turn on your TENS device to the intensity and mode of your choice. The TENS device emits electrical waves of massage over the knee to block pain signals and provide fast relief without drugs or invasive methods.

How The Pain Therapy System Helps Relieve Arthritis in the Knees

  1. A mild electrical current sends a signal across the nerves, muscles, and joints
  2. The stimulation produces massage-like waves of pain-relief
  3. The stimulation increases tissue oxygenation and circulation to the knees
  4. Pain signals that were being sent to the brain are overridden by the TENS machine signals

2. Exercise

Exercise is very important for people with arthritis. Not only does it increase strength and flexibility, but exercise also works to combat joint pain and prevent fatigue. That said, we understand that the idea of working out with arthritis can be daunting. When joint pain is at its worst, even the thought of walking around the neighbourhood is painful. Luckily, there are easy, at-home exercises to prevent arthritis. Keeping your joints strong and your body energized is essential for long-term arthritis relief.

3. Use a Knee Brace

A knee brace is designed to take the additional weight off the knee where the joint is affected by arthritis. This kind of brace supports the affected area and gives extra comfort to a specific zone. Because of the exact fit of these braces, you may require sizing and customization for this kind of brace.

The second kind of brace is a support brace, which supports the entirety of the knee rather than one specific area. If arthritis is widespread, this kind of brace could be beneficial for the wearer.

Other Long-Term Treatment Options for Knee Arthritis

Apart from the short-term solutions, there are a number of steps you can take in your daily life to alleviate arthritis pain in the knees. A few long-term pain-management strategies include:

Weight loss: losing weight can decrease knee pain from osteoarthritis.

Anti-inflammatory drugs: certain over-the-counter drugs can help temporarily relieve your joint pain. Always consult your doctor before taking any sort of medication.

Physical or occupational therapy: a physical therapist can teach you how to properly strengthen the knee and perform daily tasks in a way that is gentle on the knee's joints.

Surgery: if all other treatments still don't work for you, your doctor may recommend knee surgery.
