Osteoarthritis-arthritis is the most common type and is not to be confused with rheumatoid arthritis.
The cartilage around your knee absorbs movement around the joint and when that cartilage wears down the bones will grind against each other and cause pain.
If you support the joint you can take pressure off the cartilage in the knee and work on reducing knee pain.
Aquatic therapy might be a good option. In an aquatic setting it isn't as easy as you may think. Patients actually use the water in a gym environment to strengthen joints in a a pain free setting. The water allows patients to go through a series of exercises without pressure on the joint.
