There are three different types of arthritis that can occur in your knees:
- Osteoarthritis (OA) - It is the most common type of arthritis, a progressive condition that slowly wears away joint cartilage. OA is most likely to occur after middle age.
- Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) - An inflammatory condition that can strike at any age.
- Post-traumatic arthritis - It develops following an injury to the knee. It can occur years after a torn meniscus, ligament injury, or knee fracture.
It’s possible to have more than one type of arthritis at a time. See your doctor for a diagnosis and to discuss a successful treatment plan for the specific type or types of arthritis you have.
