Osteoarthrosis is a widespread disease affecting roughly 10% of the world‘s population. Knee pain is the most common symptom of osteoarthritis in the knee, making it painful for you to jog, run, climb stairs or kneel. It can also make your knees feel stiff or swollen. Over time, osteoarthritis of the knee can change the shape of your knee joint, making your joint feel unstable or give you that wobbly feeling.

Osteoarthritis of the knee happens when the cartilage in your knee joint breaks down, enabling the bones to rub together. The friction makes your knees hurt, become stiff and sometimes swell. While osteoarthritis in the knee can’t be cured, there are many treatments such as shockwave therapy that may be able to slow its progress and ease your symptoms

A 2014 study, found that after the shockwave treatment course, 85% of patients showed considerable improvement and morning stiffness rate was reduced by 44%. 1

What are the Risks if You Keep Living with the Pain?

Women are more likely than men to develop osteoarthritis of the knee. Most people develop this condition after age 40. But other factors such as injury or genetics can cause it to happen earlier.

Patients that do not seek treatment for their pain often end up with a worsening condition, including deformities or complete loss of function. Without treatment, your health and quality of life may become even more greatly impaired—there’s more at stake than living with pain.

Pain is the most common symptom of osteoarthritis in the knee. Your knee might hurt when you move it, or even when you are just sitting still. Other symptoms are:

  • Your knee feels stiff, particularly when you first get up or when you’ve been sitting for a long time.
  • Your knee looks swollen or feels puffy.
  • You hear a cracking or grinding noise when you move your knee.
  • Your knee feels wobbly, as if it could buckle or “give out.”
  • Your knee might lock up, or feel as if it is stuck.

Shockwave Therapy has been shown to be highly effective in reducing or eliminating pain due to aging, injury, or disease in areas all over the body.
