Athlete or stay-at-home parent, construction worker or accountant, you're a rare individual if you don't experience knee pain during your lifetime. The knee is the joint that allows us to sit, stand, walk, run, dance, play golf and just about everything else we do, bearing our entire body weight. The knee is arguably more likely to suffer injury than any other body part. When this damage is severe and results in chronic, debilitating pain, a total knee replacement may be the only solution that can deliver long-term relief.

Regardless of your age and activity level, we’re committed to resolving your pain. We specialize in hip and knee repair – and we know how to get our patients moving again.
Osteoarthritis Pain Why it Happens
More than 20 million people who once took jogging, hiking, or playing in the park with their children for granted are now plagued with knees that click, stick, and get sore. These are some of the symptoms of osteoarthritis, the most common form of the disease. With osteoarthritis, the cartilage around your joints gradually wears away.
Over time, it gets chipped and fissured, and can’t repair itself. When this happens, the cartilage can’t do its job of preventing the bones in the knee from grinding against each other. The bones start to meet each other when you stand, pivot, climb stairs, or walk down the street – causing pain.
Conservative Pain-relief for Osteoarthritis
There are non-surgical steps you can take to alleviate the pain of osteoarthritis. They include:
- Losing weight
- Exercising to boost muscle strength
- Managing pain with acetaminophen and ibuprofen
- Icing your knees after activities
However, even with conservative measures, most osteoarthritis worsens over time. When you can no longer continue the activities that are important to you, you may want to consider total knee replacement to resolve the condition and obtain lasting relief.
