Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Arthritis treatment. Syringe being used to draw excess fluid from the knee joint of a 70 year old woman with acute osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a condition in which the joints become inflamed and damaged, which makes them painful and less mobile. Osteoarthritis causes the synovium, the tissue lining the joint, to become inflamed and produce too much synovial fluid. This fluid usually lubricates the joint, but excess production causes swelling and pain. Removal of the fluid treats the symptoms. If the condition worsens, the knee joint may have to be replaced with an artificial joint.
