About Knee OA

Learn About Our Knee Osteoarthritis Care Kit

Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. For most people, pain, swelling, and stiffness are the common symptoms. Arthritis can be found in any joint, but is most common in knees. Knee arthritis affects thirty million people in the US alone, making it hard to do many everyday activities, such as walking or climbing stairs, limiting work and play for millions.

Anatomy

The knee is one of the strongest joints in your body. It is made up of three main parts; the femur, the tibia, and the patella. Each of the ends where they touch are covered with articular cartilage- a smooth, slippery substance that protects and cushions the knee. The articular cartilage is a tough and rubbery substance in the shape of two wedges called meniscus and act as shock absorbers for your knees. Additionally, your knee has a thin lining of synovial membrane which releases a fluid that lubricates the cartilage to reduce the friction.

Description

The three major types of arthritis that affect the knee are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is most commonly found in the knee and is caused by degeneration resulting from years of wear and tear, which is why it is more common in people over 50. In Osteoarthritis, the cartilage that acts as your shock absorbers wears away. As it wears away the cartilage gets frayed, becomes rough and the protection and space between the bone decreases. This can result in bone on bone rubbing and can produce painful bone spurs.

Osteoarthritis develops slowly and the pain it causes worsens over time.

Symptoms

Generally, the pain develops gradually over time, although sudden onset is also possible. Other symptoms include:

  • The joint may become stiff and swollen, making it difficult to bend and straighten the knee.
  • Pain and swelling may be worse in the morning, or after sitting or resting.
  • Vigorous activity may cause pain to flare up.
  • Loose fragments of cartilage and other tissue can interfere with the smooth motion of joints. The knee may "lock" or "stick" during movement. It may creak, click, snap or make a grinding noise (crepitus).
  • Pain may cause a feeling of weakness or buckling in the knee.
  • Many people with arthritis note increased joint pain with rainy weather.

FAQ's
    1. How are these products any better than what I can by at my local pharmacy?
      We curated only medical grade products found in clinics and loved by people like you. The true power of the kit is the combination of these products, tools, and instruction that will allow you to get back to what you love.

    2. How often should I wear my brace?
      Wear during all activities initially and then during rigorous activity overtime.

    3. I thought there’s no way to “heal” arthritis. How will this care kit help me?
      Osteoarthritis is degenerative, meaning it will only get worse over time. However, the combination of the treatments in this kit can reduce the pain from the symptoms. Additionally, the brace and exercises are designed to assist you with better alignment of the knee joint. A properly aligned joint will result less bone on bone contact, which has been shown to slow the progress of OA.

    4. I think I have arthritis, but I’m not sure. Can I do any damage to my knee by trying this kit?
      It is important to always consult a physician for any medical advice and diagnosis. However, most knee injuries will benefit from the therapies in this kit, and if used appropriately, risk of additional injury is limited.
