Knee Arthritis is a degenerative condition characterised by inflammation and deterioration of the knee joint. The knee, a hinge joint, is where the thigh bone (femur) meets the shinbone (tibia).
It plays a crucial role in movement, particularly in actions such as walking, running, and jumping. When arthritis occurs in the knee, these movements can become painful and challenging.
Your previous diagnosis may not have been accurate and have left out certain crucial details. Further investigation through imaging scans from a knee arthritis specialist can provide an accurate diagnosis.
In some cases, the previous treatment prescribed may only have taken into account the inflammatory component of the patient's condition, and did not consider the underlying wear and tear.
The previous specialist or GP that you consulted may have had limited medication or treatment options available, and did not have the most suitable treatment option for your condition.
In some cases, the previous recommended treatment plan was too much of a financial burden for the patient and also required a long term commitment.
