Early Knee Osteoarthritis Awareness Campaign

What is Early Knee Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis of the knee, commonly referred to as knee arthritis, isn’t just a simple consequence of aging. It's an actual wear and tear disease, which can lead to significant joint damage and chronic pain. Sunway Medical Centre is on a mission to bring light to this prevalent condition and offer support to those experiencing its early signs.
Knee Osteoarthritis is a condition marked by the degradation of joint cartilage. As this cartilage wears down, bones within the joint rub closer together, often causing pain, swelling, and reduced mobility.
Advanced Osteoarthritis – Key Indicators:
- Bone Spurs – Growth of extra bones known as osteophytes.
- Cartilage Loss – Thinning or complete absence of the cushion between joints.
- Joint Space Narrowing – Less space in the joint can mean more friction and pain.
Five Early Warning Signs You Shouldn't Ignore:
- Knee Pain: Persistent pain, especially after long periods of inactivity or during repetitive motion.
- Knee Swelling: Noticeable swelling or inflammation around the joint area.
- Knee Stiffness: Difficulty in bending or flexing the knee.
- Decreased Knee Mobility: Reduced movement range or difficulty in walking.
- Crackling Knee Sounds: Hearing crunching or crackling sounds when moving the knee.
