Hello lybrate user arthritis in old age especially in weight bearing joints is common. Its disorder of joint. A condition related to joint has not cured totally only prevented. Joints articulated surface became rough and irregular & cartilage torn. We can restore a joint by avoiding some position as squatting, fast climbing stair without support, avoid heavy weight lifting, forward bending position s, etc. Pain and stiffness can reduce by physiotherapy treatment. To provide strength to muscle exercises are advisable under supervision of good qualified physiotherapist only. By using knee brace or support your joint remains stable. In case of severe arthritis suggested by practioner then joints need replacement. But these days replacement surgeries become more comfortable with best results.
