What Is “Wear And Tear” Knee Arthritis?

Osteoarthritis (Arthritis) of the knee commonly known as wear-and-tear, is a condition in which the natural cushioning in the knee joint, the cartilage wears away.

When this happens, the bones of the joints can rub together and result in pain, swelling, stiffness, and restriction in movement of the knee joint.

The Cause(s) Of Knee Pain

Although parts of this mechanical definition are correct, we have moved a long way from this sole reason for arthritis. In reality, it can have many causes, including:

What? Lifestyle… how can that cause knee pain?

Lifestyle Causing Knee Pain

Chemical inflammation over time causing damage to the cartilage in the joint has been shown to be the most common reason for knee arthritis. This inflammatory response affects our DNA like in other chronic diseases and produces chemicals which are harmful to the knee joint.

It’s the constant inflammation that causes the joint pain, swelling and eventually leads to the destruction of the joint.

How Do I Develop Knee Inflammation?

It’s pretty simple – our modern diet and lifestyle is often to blame! Consuming too much refined carbohydrates, and putting on weight! Also, too much fat in the diet can affect the composition of the synovial fluid (lubricant) in the joint. This can reduce protection from the mechanical friction in the joint.

It’s simple – as your weight goes up, this increases pressure on your joints!

If our diet is high in saturated fat and cholesterol, we can develop atherosclerosis (blockages in your blood-vessels) that can also affect joint health, and limit your ability to exercise – or worse!

Is There A Solution For Knee Pain?

The first step is to change how you think about Knee Arthritis.

Most people avoid exercise, or weight-bearing activities on their injured knee, because they see Arthritis as something that never goes away, and the more they move, the more it destroys the joint.

This is the opposite to what you should be doing. Exercise has been shown to increase strength and stability to the knee joint and help decrease pain and inflammation.

Secondly, it can help people to maintain and reduce body weight that can reduce pressure on the knee.

So how we use terminology has a huge bearing on how patients interpret their conditions. We need to stop using the catastrophic phrases to describe Knee Injuries!

“Bone On Bone” Arthritis Is A Terrifying Diagnosis

The “bone on bone” definition of arthritis is a common explanation given to people suffering from knee arthritis. It instills fear and reinforces negative beliefs to patients about their joint health.

This can have huge impacts on how they use their knees and will probably cause more pain and damage long term.

If you are told you have bone rubbing on bone you are most likely to avoid anything that stresses these “damaged” joints. You will most likely avoid any source of weight bearing exercises and other activities that stress the joint. This is the wrong thing to do!

Don’t give up or despair – there are lots of things you can do, and we are here to help!
