What is Knee Arthritis?

Osteoarthritis is a condition characterized by the inflammation of the bones and soft tissues of the joints. Osteoarthritis of the knee, which is often referred to a just knee arthritis, is very common. Patients with knee arthritis typically have the following symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Stiffness
  • Tenderness

Symptoms may range from very mild to severe. Treating knee arthritis is its early stages prevents the condition from becoming worse. Patients who are experiencing symptoms are encouraged to make an appointment with one of the Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Knee Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates so their condition can be evaluated, diagnosed, and treated.


How is it treated?

Knee arthritis can often be effectively treated using nonsurgical treatment options. The Knee Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates prescribe treatment plans that consist of any or any combination of the following nonsurgical treatment options:

  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Bracing
  • Injections

Knee arthritis that reaches severe stages and has not responded to conservative treatments may require surgical intervention in the form of a Partial or Total Knee Replacement Procedure. The Fellowship Trained and Board Certified Knee Specialists at Olympia Orthopaedic Associates use the latest Knee Replacement Techniques to help give patients maximum results.  In fact, many of our Knee Replacement Procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis.  Olympia Orthopaedic Associates is the only orthopaedic group in the area to offer this revolutionary surgical option as part of our Outpatient Joint Replacement Program.
