Knee Arthritis and Osteoarthritis
Arthritis and osteoarthritis of the knee are progressive conditions that result in wear and tear in the cartilage in the joint. There are several arthritis symptoms you may experience in isolation or combined. Stiffness of the knee, making it difficult to straighten is especially common in the morning. However, it can occur at any time. Pain and inflammation of the joint are also potential signs of arthritis in the knee.
The symptoms of osteoarthritis are similar to those of rheumatoid arthritis, so it is important to seek a confirmed diagnosis. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds of Silicon Valley Orthopaedics are specialist orthopedic surgeons who offer effective treatment for arthritis and osteoarthritis.
Conservative treatment options at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics include physical therapy and pain management. In some cases, patients may need fluid removed or minimally invasive surgeries to address joint damage and ease symptoms.
