Arthritis of the Knee – FAQs
What is the best exercise for bad knees?
Typically, if a certain range or a certain movement causes pain, that movement should be avoided. If the pain is aggravated and the joint is swollen for several days, that particular exercise has to be modified.
Why do my joints make a popping or a crackling noise? Does that mean that I have arthritis?
For conditions like tear in the ligament- a medial collateral ligament, lateral collateral ligament, anterior cruciate, ligament or posterior cruciate ligament, there will be associated instability. In addition, the neurovascular structures around the joint have to be evaluated very closely to ensure there’s no damage there after the injury.
Crackling sounds in the joint may indicate arthritis or the start of arthritis. Arthritis in the joint, especially associated with pain, has to be evaluated further by an orthopedic surgeon.

Can a deformity in the knee joint aggravate arthritis.
There are numerous factors that could aggravate arthritis in the knee joint including a deformity. The deformity may be a bow leg or it maybe a knock-knee. Bow legged or a knocked knee increase pressure over one side of the joint because the body weight passes through only one side of the joint and causes and aggravates the arthritis.
In the early of the disease, if the deformity is corrected, the onset of arthritis is delayed and also there’s also a cosmetic advantage in taking care of the deformity.
Other factors that can aggravate arthritis is trauma to the joint where the injury involves the cartridge. In addition, if there is a deformity associated with trauma, (whether it’s outside the joint or inside the joint) and if it affects the mechanics of the joint, it can lead to early arthritis.
