Aseptic tibial loosening is the number 1 cause of failure leading to revision after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). That shouldn’t be the case: At the 7th Annual ICJR South Hip & Knee Course, Daniel J.

Knee joints are under a lot of physical stress each day. It is very common to experience pain in one or both knees due to normal wear and tear, physical activity, or injury. Often, if a person has a knee injury or strain, the pain can feel as though it is burning.
Osteoarthritis, sometimes called "wear and tear" arthritis, is a common degenerative condition. Doctors can treat osteoarthritis with medication and surgery. People can also manage their symptoms with different exercises and stretches.
