Risk factor for knee arthritis

Following are main risk factors for knee arthritis

Age -:

Your risk of knee osteoarthritis increases as you age,
starting at about age 45 and levelling off after age 75.

Excess Over Weight -:

This is one of the biggest risk factors for knee arthritis
and the one you have the most power to change.

Gender -:

Women are at higher risk for knee osteoarthritis than men.

Genes -:

A family history can raise your risk, so if you had a parent who
developed osteoarthritis, chances are greater that you will too.

Previous Injury-:

A knee injury can leave you more vulnerable to future
arthritis, even years later.
