- prolonged walking and winter season will increase your pain, do take rest of 10 min in between.- apply hot water bottle and after that do knee exercises to strength your knee muscles. - surgery is not cure to arthritis, basically surgery is suggested when you had 4 stage of arthritis.- if you still thinking of surgery, kindly take physio sessions pre and post surgery to recover full. - check vit d, uric acid level -
