If you are the type of person who loves to get out and stay active, knee joint inflammation can make living life to the full difficult. Identifying the cause of your condition is the first step toward finding relief. You may have suffered a tendon, ligament, bone or cartilage injury. Alternatively, a degenerative illness such as osteoarthritis could explain the symptoms you are experiencing.
There is also group of auto-immune conditions that fall under the umbrella of knee inflammatory arthritis. Pain will develop slowly with symptoms worsening over time. If you identify inflammation in the knee that is frequent in nature, you may be suffering from an incurable chronic condition. Without treatment, there is a risk of completely compromising the stability of the joint.
Arthritic Pain & Inflammation
When arthritis develops in the knee joint, sufferers are left with symptoms that are often debilitating in nature. Pain, inflammation and mobility issues make walking, running, sitting, sleeping and a range of other normal activities difficult or impossible. The most common type of arthritis that affects the knee joint is osteoarthritis, which is a degenerative condition.
The types of arthritis that are brought on by an autoimmune disorder include rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Symptoms such as pain and inflammation are common in sufferers of both of these conditions. You will likely find that severe symptoms will impact on mobility, preventing you from walking or participating in sporting activities.
