Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Osteoarthritis. Swollen knees of a 71 year old woman with osteoarthritis. The knees have become deformed, causing the legs to curve outwards at the joint. Osteoarthritis is a joint disorder usually caused by mechanical wear and tear of the affected joint. The joint loses its smooth cartilage lining and the bones in the joint rub against each other, causing pain, swelling, stiffness and deformity. Treatment involves reducing the symptoms with painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs. In severe cases, the patient may undergo knee replacement surgery.
