I was diagnosed 4 years ago with OA in one knee as a result of a bad fall, followed by a second similar fall [didn't look where I was going!!] and a few months later after an Xray the OA was revealed. Up until now it has not been a problem but I do find my knee is becoming increasingly stiff and 'grates' on occasion. I don't think it is causing me to limp - yet - but I often have to consciously work at preventing that.
I would like to know does this mean the arthritis is deteriorating and is it always inevitable that it will do so? I am 74 and am of normal weight. I walk daily and garden as much as the weather will allow.
I don't want to have surgery if it can be avoided, what can I do to help myself?
