Knee Arthritis

By Dr Daniel Meyerkort, Knee Surgeon, Perth Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Centre

Overview of Knee Arthritis

Knee arthritis (wear of the cartilage) is a very common cause of pain and disability. Patients can experience painful flares which can mimic acute knee injury. First line treatment should be simple pain medication such as paracetamol / anti-inflammatory and Physiotherapy for muscle strengthening exercises.
