Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis in the knee. It is a degenerative,"wear-and-tear" type of arthritis that occurs most often in people 50 years of age. Age is a major risk factor for osteoarthritis of the knee, young people can get it, too. For some individuals, it may be hereditary. For others, osteoarthritis of the knee can result from injury or infection or even from being overweight.
Symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee may include:
1. Pain that increases when you are active, but gets a little better with rest
2. Swelling
3. Feeling of warmth in the joint
4. Stiffness in the knee, especially in the morning or when you have been sitting for a while
5. Decrease in mobility of the knee, making it difficult to get in and out of chairs or cars, use the stairs, or walk
6. Creaking, crackly sound that is heard when the knee moves
