WHAT IS THE CONDITION?
As osteoarthritis of the knee is a degenerative condition there is no chance of it healing and the cartilage growing back, therefore there are only remedies to slow the degeneration down and reduce the pain, with replacement knee surgery being the end option. The condition can be as serious as stopping a patient from walking to the shops or moving freely around their home or begin as a mild discomfort when moving and resting with inflammation of the joint following extended periods of exercise.
Surgery can cover both a partial or full knee replacement and is no small operation and can take up to six months before a patient is able to walk unaided. The replacement knee itself will last for up to 15 years but extensive physiotherapy and recuperation is required before getting anywhere near the activity levels experienced prior to the onset of the condition.

Tips and Procedures:
Start by filling a bowl, bucket, sink, or small tub with water.
The compression bandages should be dipped gently into the water to dampen.
Add a small amount of washing solution (see below).
Let the compression bandages soak for a few minutes.
For better cleaning, gently rub the fibers of the compression bandages together without stretching them excessively.
Then, empty the tub and refill with water – dip or rinse the clean compression bandages thoroughly to rid the bandages of residual salts and oils from perspiration.
Gently squeeze the compression bandages to remove excess water.
Refer to the drying options below
Harsh cleaning agents, solvents, petroleum-based cleaners etc. can destroy the thin fibers of compression bandages. Mild soaps or detergents should be used, free of bleach, chlorine, fabric softeners or other laundry additives.
Some compression garment manufacturers offer garment washing solutions, which are formulated to remove oil, body acids, and skin salts quickly and easily without damage to the fabric; using these specially-designed solutions is also recommended for compression bandages and will help extending their life span and keep them firm.
