Take a Look: Arthritis in the Knee

August 3, 2023

Arthritis can really hurt your golf game. 

Arthritis is the No. 1 cause of disability in the United States, and it affects nearly 60 million adults and 300,000 children. To complicate matters, there are more than 100 types of arthritis, which can damage your joints and other organs.

We know that arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints. It can cause pain and stiffness, and it typically worsens as you age. But what does arthritis actually look like?

Dr. Nancy Rini, chair of Middlesex Health's Radiology Department, shares the photo above, which shows how arthritis can impact your knee. 

Middlesex has diagnostic imaging locations in Middletown at Middlesex Hospital and the Middlesex Health Outpatient Center. It also has locations at the Middlesex Health Shoreline Medical Center in Westbrook and the Middlesex Health Marlborough Medical Center in Marlborough.
