There are three basic types of arthritis that may affect the knee joint.
Osteoarthritis—Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of knee arthritis. OA is usually a slowly progressive degenerative disease in which the joint cartilage gradually wears away. It most often affects middle-aged and older individuals.
Rheumatoid Arthritis—Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory type of arthritis that can destroy the joint cartilage. RA can occur at any age. RA generally affects both knees.
Post-traumatic Arthritis—Post-traumatic arthritis can develop after an injury to the knee. This type of arthritis is similar to osteoarthritis and may develop years after a knee fracture or type of knee tear.
Arthritis of the knee is a leading cause of disability in the United States. Patellofemoral arthritis affects your kneecap. It causes pain in the front of your knee and can make it challenging to kneel and climb stairs.
