Knee pain and osteoarthritis (OA) ?
One of the most common causes of knee pain is osteoarthritis (OA), a disease that causes a gradual breakdown of the cartilage in your joints.
As the disease progresses and the cartilage gets worn away, the bones start to rub and grind against each other, and that causes pain. The pain can often be felt when you bend your knees, when you walk up and down stairs, or even when you’re resting.
