Knee Arthritis (Osteoarthritis Of The Knee): Treated Best Non-Operatively
Painful knees and limitations in knee movements can be the result of knee arthritis (knee osteoarthritis). Disability arising from knee pain and knee arthritis is on the rise.
The good news for those that suffer from arthritic knees is that they can have an effective treatment without surgery. The latest research has proven that knee surgery is not as successful as once believed.
Most patients continue to suffer from knee pain even after the surgery. Chiropractic Specialty Center® has treated many that have had a surgical intervention but still lived in pain. We have helped many, and we can do the same for you.
In our centers, you will get the best non-surgical knee pain treatment in town.
We have seen arthritic knees in the young and old alike. Of course, it occurs more frequently in the elderly. A common cause of knee osteoarthritis is a sedentary lifestyle. Nowadays, we don’t walk as much as our parents or grandparents did. We sit too much, and when we sit, we sit for extended periods. All that sitting leads to weakness and tightness in the thigh and leg muscles.
What Is The Most Common Cause Of Arthritis?
There are two distinct forms of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis. The knee joint is suspectable o both forms. However, osteoarthritis forms are the most common type of knee arthritis.
Bones of all joints, including the knee, are covered with a protective layer of tissue called cartilage. The thickness of cartilage varies from joint-to-joint. The weight-bearing joints have thicker cartilage. The bones of the knee joint have the thickest cartilage, measuring 1.70-2.6 mm.
Both the rheumatoid and osteoarthritis forms of arthritis impact the cartilage. The cartilage is the protective covering on bones near a joint. It protects the bones and joints by cushioning them and by providing the needed lubrication. Also, the cartilage prevents friction at the bony surfaces of joints.
Difference Between Rheumatoid Arthritis And Osteoarthritis
Both rheumatoid arthritis of the knee and the osteoarthritis of the cartilage is damaged. In rheumatoid arthritis, cartilage damage comes from an immune response. An immune response is our body’s defense mechanism against harmful substances or foreign bodies. Rheumatoid arthritis gives an immune response in rheumatoid arthritis targets the lining of joints (parts of cartilage) that causes inflammation, pain, and degenerative changes.
Cartilage dagame in Osteoarthritis is due to premature or excessive wear and tear. Wear and tear cause premature degeneration of the protective covering of bones at the knee joint. As the cartilage wears thin, the bone beneath is exposed; thus producing pain and restricted movements.
Muscle And Ligament Weakness Resulting In Knee Pain & Knee Arthritis
The combined effects of weakness and tight muscles give rise to imbalances and knee pain, eventually resulting in an osteoarthritic knee joint. The most common source of knee pain is a weakness in the knee muscles. When you experience weakness in the knee muscles, it is due to:
- The tightness of the thigh and leg muscles will compress the kneecap against the thigh,
- Tight muscles and soft tissues will stress the meniscus (padding of the knee between the thigh and leg bone); leading to meniscal degeneration,
- A degenerated meniscus can herniate into the leg bone (the subchondral bone of the tibia), thus initiating the knee arthritis process.

Due to our lifestyles, knee arthritis (osteoarthritis) is more widespread than it has ever been before. The problem isn’t so much that it is occurring more often, but many have surgical interventions when they do not need it. Hence, a worrying trend.

What Are The Most Common Surgeries For Knee Arthritis?
The knees are one of the most commonly operated joints. The three most common surgical procedures for an arthritic knee are:
- Partial Knee Replacement
- Total Knee Replacement
- Knee Osteotomy
Partial knee replacement or unicompartmental knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure that replaces a single part of the knee as defined by knee compartments. Here are the three knee compartments:
- Medial compartment: It is the innermost aspects of the knees
- Lateral compartment: The outermost part of the knee
- Patellofemoral compartment: This is knee cap as it meets the thigh bone (femur)
Partial knee replacement is a precursor to a total knee replacement
In a total knee replacement surgery, a prosthetic device replaces the entire knee joint. A prosthetic knee joint is not as sturdy or durable, and as such, it lasts for 10-15 years. For those over the age of 65 who did not respond favorably to a targeted non-surgical treatment program.
Osteotomy involves the shaving and reshaping of knee joints. This type of surgery is best for those under the age of 50. The vast majority of patients who undergo an osteotomy will need additional surgical interventions such as partial or total replacements. In most cases, they start with partial knee replacement, and years later, follow up with a total knee replacement.
To summarize, knee surgery is not a cure. It renders the knees weak and susceptible to injuries or damage.
The failure rates associated with the conventional surgical interventions for knee arthritis are the main reason why many have encouraged a focused conservative knee treatment. Call our center today to learn about advanced non-surgical methods of knee treatments not offered by others. We get you better without surgery or injections.
Should You Reconsider Knee Surgery?
Far too often, knee pain sufferers undergo surgical procedures too early. Knee surgery should always be your last option. The surgical procedure for the arthritic knee is extensive and requires prolonged recovery time. Besides, there are no guarantees that knee surgery would last. Far too many patients end with multiple surgeries for the knees.
Unfortunately, we have encountered this too many times in the past. In one particular case, the patient had three surgical repairs on one knee and two supposed repairs on the other knee but still lived with knee pain. We mean by this that she had three different surgeries on one knee and two separate surgical procedures for the other. The patient is not even 50! The surgeon was recommending additional surgical procedures for each knee.
She was to have knee replacement surgery done on both knees. That was when the patient had enough and came to us for care. Although our systems can still help her, we prefer not to see patients in this condition. If your surgeon recommends a TKR (total knee replacement surgery), visit us to see how our targeted conservative treatments can help.
Our goal is to get patients like her in our office to avoid unnecessary surgery in the first palace. Our method of knee pain treatment is designed to fix the damage to your knee. So, your knee should be stable when we finish your knee pain treatment program without any discomfort.
Why Is Knee Osteoarthritis Often A Scapegoat Diagnosis?
Today, the most common knee surgery is arthroscopic. Arthroscopic knee surgery was discredited by eye-popping European research. It is beyond us why some are still doing it.
Osteoarthritis results from neglect or, worse, poorly treated knee injuries. Both of these are avoidable, both of which you can control. If you have been injured, do not neglect or ignore a knee injury. Thus, so call or visit one of our centers for precise diagnosis and target specific non-invasive treatment that fixes the damaged tissue. This way, you can give your body a fighting chance for recovery.
If you opt for timely care from our experts, you can avoid knee surgery. Replacements are the surgeons’ answer to such wear and tear. Ours is therapy, exercise, and rehabilitation. Sometimes, surgery is needed. Today, people are being cut first, which needs to stop. What is even worse is that many go through repeated surgical procedures time and again. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over, but yet expecting different results. Try us if you have knee pain and see our difference. We might be able to save your knees.
Surgery can be a distant second option. That is if we fail. But, we rarely fail, and that is good news for many knee pain patients. Contact one of our centers today for the best Knee arthritis or knee pain treatment options by the best teams of chiropractors in Malaysia.
