Advanced Arthritis

Advanced arthritis occurs when the articular cartilage deteriorates. Osteoarthritis is the most common cause and results in the breakdown and loss of the smooth articular cartilage layers of your knee joint. Changes to the knee are progressive and typically worsen over time. As articular cartilage has no blood supply it has almost no healing properties. Impact, sheer stress from twisting and long term wear eventually erode the cartilage down to underlying bone resulting in increased pain.
