Arthritis of the Knee Joint

Gregory Kaplan, Physical Therapist with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, explains in a normal knee joint there is good spacing within the joint, but where the arthritis is present there is some breakdown of the bone, which will lead to pain. About treatment, he says if it is too painful, joint replacement can be an option and he recommends speaking to your orthopedic physician about that.
