The osteoarthritis, also known as wear-and-tear arthritis, is age-related condition. In a healthy joint, the movement is smooth due to a cartilage which covers the ends of the bones between joints.
Over the years, the cartilage loose its properties and becomes dehydrated. In this case, the knee movement becomes painful and destroy the bones. Other factors, such as poor diet or overweight, result in malalignment and knee wear and tear. Knee damage caused by the osteoarthritis can lead to a Baker’s cyst developing. The Baker’s cyst is located in popliteal fossa and causes the pain and bruising. The best solution for OA knee is our knee brace AS-KX-08.
