Gonarthrosis: Causes, Symptoms & Herbal Treatment

What is Gonarthrosis

The type of osteoarthritis occurring in the knee joint is called Gonarthrosis. We often see people experiencing pain in their knees especially after long period of lack of movement-“gonarthrosis” is one of the possible cause of such discomfort. It is a degenerative disease which often develops as people gets older, as excessive strain leads to wear on the cartilage in the knee joint over the years.Gonarthrosis

As per World Health Organisation (WHO), rheumatic disease is the third most important problem in industrialized countries, including osteoarthritis because it affects 80% of elderly population. It is expected that by 2020, Gonarthrosis will be 4th leading cause of disability among population. It affects 30% of population over 65 years, 10%men and 20% women over 60 years of age.

What Causes Gonarthrosis

There is articular cartilage present between thigh bone and lower leg bone. It performs a buffering and protective function in knee by cushioning it against movements and impact. The cartilage ensures that both the bones do not rub up against each other directly. However under certain circumstances, the cartilage gets detiorated. These conditions are as follows-

  1. Aging – About 75% of all people older than 50 years and around 90% of the over 70-year-olds suffer from Gonarthrosis. It’s normal for cartilage to deteriorate through wear as part of the natural aging process.
  2. Heavy Physical Work- Due to heavy physical work like participating in competitive sport, or being overweight, overburdening of the knees occurs hence causing wearing off the cartilage.
  3. Joint Injuries Or Bone Fractures- Gonarthrosis can also develop as a result of joint injuries or bone fractures,
  4. Gout- Due to deposition of uric acid crystals in knee joint, the joint get affected and cartilage tissue is damaged which in turn lead to Gonarthrosis.

Symptoms of Gonarthrosis

  • Pain- The first symptom to be noticed in gonarthrosis is pain in the knee joint. The pain usually occurs initially after a prolonged period of inactivity or rest. Initial movements after sitting or lying for a long time feels stiff and painful. After taking few steps, the pain subsides and then knee can be moved freely. Some people notice crunching or crackling sound while knee movement. As disease progreeses, the pain becomes worse and more frequent, more experienced during doing sports or climbing stairs.
  • Stiffness Of Knee Joint- Patients often experiences that the mobility of knee joint is becoming restricted ultimately causing it to stiffen up. The knee can no longer be bent as much – and later on it can no longer be stretched out completely.
  • Inflammation- If cartilage damage is severe enough that the bones begin to rub up against eachother, it is possible that the joint can become inflamed. The knee joint then swells up and the skin around it becomes red.

How Gonarthrosis is Diagnosed

A doctor can diagnose Gonarthrosis by physical examination of the joint. He checks the fluid around the red, swollen joints as well as limited movement of the affected joint.There are some tests also to confirm the disease -X-Ray, CT scan, MRI, and some blood tests.
