Treatment of arthritis of the knee
Depending upon the severity of arthritis and the
patient's age, knee arthritis may be managed in a
number of different ways. Treatment may consist
of operative or non-operative methods, or a
combination of both.
3
Non-operative
The first line of treatment of knee arthritis
includes activity modification, anti-inflammatory
medication, and weight loss. Giving up activities
that make the pain worse may make this condition
bearable for some people. Anti-inflammatory
medications such as ibuprofen, naprosyn and newer
Cox-2 inhibitors help alleviate the inflammation
that may be contributing to the pain. Physical
therapy to strengthen the muscles around the knee
may help absorb some of the shock imparted to the
joint. This is particularly true for knee-cap
(patello-femoral) arthritis. Special kinds of
braces, designed to place transfer load to a part
of the knee that is less arthritic may also help
relieve the pain. Injections of medication inside
the knee joint may also help alleviate the pain
temporarily. Furthermore, walking with a cane
in the hand on the opposite side as the painful
knee may help distribute some of the load,
reducing the pain. Finally, weight loss helps
decrease the force that goes across the knee
joint. A combination of these non-operative
measures may help ease the pain and disability
caused by knee arthritis.
4
Operative
If the non-operative methods have failed to make
your condition bearable, surgery may be the best
option to treat knee arthritis. The exact type of
surgery depends upon your age, anatomy, and
underlying condition. Some examples of surgical
options to treat arthritis include an osteotomy,
which consists of cutting the bone to realign the
joint and knee replacement surgery.
5
An osteotomy is a good alternative if the patient
is young and the arthritis is limited to a one
area of the knee joint. It allows the surgeon to
realign the knee to unload the arthritic area and
place weightbearing on relatively uninvolved
portions of the knee joint. For example, a
patient who has begun to become more bowlegged
might be realigned to be more knock-kneed in
order to redistribute the load across the joint.
The advantage of this type of surgery is that the
patient's own knee joint is retained and could
potentially provide many years of pain relief
without the disadvantages of a prosthetic knee.
The disadvantages include a longer rehabilitation
course and the possibility that arthritis could
develop in the newly aligned knee.
6
Knee replacement surgery involves cutting away
the arthritic bone and inserting a prosthetic
joint. All of the arthritic surfaces are
replaced, including the femur, tibia, and
patella. The arthritic surfaces are removed, and
the ends of the bone are replaced with the
prosthesis, like capping a tooth. The prosthetic
component is generally made of metal and plastic
surfaces which are designed to glide smoothly
against one another.
