My knee hurts, could it be arthritis?

In the knee joint there is a layer of smooth cartilage on the lower end of the femur (thigh bone), the upper end of the tibia (shinbone), and the undersurface of the kneecap (patella).  This cartilage serves as a cushion and gliding surface which allows for smooth motion of the knee.

Arthritis is a deterioration or wearing away of this smooth cartilage.  Eventually it wears down to bone.  Rubbing of bone against bone causes pain and stiffness in the joint along with the build up of fluid.  These are the most recognizable findings and patient symptoms identified on medical exam and review of the X-rays.  If you have all of these symptoms, you probably have osteoarthritis of your knee.
