Feeling Knee Pain?

In Singapore, many people suffer knee pain in silence without seeking proper knee treatment due to fear of knee replacement surgery.

The knee pain survey we conducted revealed that many Singaporeans have suffered from chronic knee pain at some point in their lives, and most of them are at risk of developing knee osteoarthritis in their lifetime due to poor lifestyle choices, ageing, or injury.

Of the many Singaporeans with kneecap pain, only 50% said that they had sought professional medical treatment for their knee problems.

Despite this, most knee pain sufferers waited until their quality of life was seriously affected before going to the doctor as they were afraid of total knee replacement surgery.

In our survey, we found that these people are more likely to endure the pain until they are unable to walk before seeking treatment for their knee pain, which is too late and too expensive.

Despite the high prevalence of chronic knee pain among Singaporeans, many are unaware of knee osteoarthritis – the most common form of osteoarthritis and knee arthritis for the kneecap.

Understanding More About Your Knee Pain

What is the leading cause of knee pain? What exactly is knee osteoarthritis and who is more susceptible to it? Click on the boxes below to learn more!

What Causes Knee Pain?

Knee osteoarthritis, also known as wear and tear arthritis, is one of the leading causes of knee pain. It is a common knee problem that describes the natural cushioning between the upper leg bone end (femur) and lower leg bone end (tibia) called the knee cartilage wears away.

During knee osteoarthritis, the knee cartilage that cushions and protects the upper thigh bone (femur) and lower thigh bone (tibia), allowing the kneecap to bend and move freely, is worn out. You can even hear grinding or crunching sounds in your knee joint as you bend your knee which is painful.

As the shock-absorbing knee cartilage wears out, the upper thigh bone (femur) and lower thigh bone (tibia) may start rubbing against each other. As a result of the rubbing, the knee is painful, inflamed, swollen, and stiff and there is a loss of movement and flexibility in the knee joint. It can also result in bone spurs forming within the joint called osteophytes which are caused by knee degeneration.

“Knee osteoarthritis hits you with knee pain and stiffness in the early stages, but it can progress to become a very serious condition over time in which you can’t even bend it. Without proper knee treatment, joint deformities can develop in the kneecap, resulting in mobility issues and even disabilities, requiring you to use a wheelchair or walking stick for the rest of your life.”

– Mr Cher, Chief Consultant at The Body Clinic

Who Typically Has Knee Pain?

“Knee pain affects both men and women, especially those in their 40s or older. Knee pain becomes more common with advancing age. Young people are also susceptible to developing knee osteoarthritis, and the average age group is becoming younger over time.”

– Mr Cher, Chief Consultant at The Body Clinic

Knee pain is also work-related if you sit and stand for long hours, walk long distances, or climb up and down the stairs frequently causing the knee cartilage to wear out quickly. It can also affect you if you are overweight, or exercise incorrectly putting too much weight and pressure on your knee joint with the wrong alignment.

Furthermore, our survey revealed that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the growing trend of work-from-home and leading a sedentary lifestyle is another risk factor for developing knee osteoarthritis causing knee pain as the muscles around the kneecap weaken from inactivity.

What Are Other Causes Of Knee Pain?

Rheumatoid Arthritis SingaporeOther causes of knee pain can also be due to the following knee problems:

  • Knee Injury
  • Knee Accident
  • Dislocated Kneecap
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Patellar Tendonitis
  • Gout

“Early detection is a critical factor in delaying disease progression in the knee joint. Appropriate knee pain treatment in conjunction with lifestyle modification can assist in maintaining the knee joint’s flexibility and mobility. This will help to delay invasive surgery such as total knee replacement which is costly and irreversible.”

– Mr Cher, Chief Consultant at The Body Clinic

Knee Replacement Surgery Parts

What Is Total Knee Replacement Surgery?

Knee replacement is known as ‘knee arthroplasty’ or ‘total knee replacement’. It is done by cutting away the damaged bone and cartilage from your thigh bone, shinbone and kneecap and replacing it with an artificial joint called ‘prosthesis’.

The prosthesis, which is an artificial knee joint, is made of metal alloys, plastic parts, and polymers. This surgery will be the last resort for someone who is suffering from severe knee osteoarthritis as it has its disadvantages.

Risks Of Knee Replacement Surgery That You Must Be Aware Of!

Post Knee Replacement Surgery

Are you contemplating knee replacement surgery? You may reconsider after reading this (which no one will tell you).

According to our survey, we found out that many Singaporeans do not know the side effects and disadvantages of a knee replacement surgery, believing it to be the end-all solution to their throbbing knee pain. But this is not true!

Do you know that after knee surgery, you can no longer bend your knee fully, squat, or kneel completely to do your daily chores or even pray?

Learn about the 14 disadvantages of knee replacement surgery which are irreversible and you may want to consider carefully:

Post Knee Replacement Surgery

14 Disadvantages of A Knee Replacement Surgery


Loss Of Motion Caused By
Knee Stiffness

Many patients experience constant knee stiffness and loss of motion such as the inability to bend the knee which affects their walking or doing other activities.


Prosthesis Does Not Last Forever!

The sad truth is, artificial knee replacement does not last forever and may require additional surgery, which further injures and weakens your knee muscles, tendon and ligaments due to the operation.

The younger you are when you do knee surgery, the more likely you will wear out the knee replacement joints. It is even worse if you are overweight or do heavy manual work.


Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

Knee surgery may lead to a blood clot in one or more of the deep veins in your body, such as your leg veins causing blockage of blood flow. A blood clot can also happen in your lungs as well.


Artificial Joint Becomes Loose

Your artificial joint may become loose over time which often requires another knee surgery as the cement that holds the joint has worn out.


Nerve And Blood Vessels Damage

During knee surgery, there is a possibility that may lead to nerve or blood vessel damage causing foot drop, numbness, weakness, tingling, or burning sensation.


Anaesthesia Complications

Patients over 60 years of age can suffer from cognitive dysfunction. Side effects such as breathing difficulties, vomiting and dizziness can occur.


Tendons and Ligaments Injury

Knee tendons and ligaments can be injured during surgery causing more pain, restricted range of motion, instability, and mobility.


Increased Risk of Heart Attack

Studies have shown that patients undergoing knee replacement are 9 times more likely to suffer from a heart attack.


Risk of Infection

Serious infection can happen and the artificial joint must be removed and replaced.


Caused Back Pain Due To Leg Length Differences

Knee surgery can result in leg length differences which cause lower back, hip and ankle pain.


Bleeding and Wound Healing Complications
Patients who are suffering from diabetes or compromised immune responses find that their wound do not heal well.


Build-up of Toxic Metal Ions
In The Blood

The artificial knee joint is made up of metals that can leak into the bloodstream due to wear and tear, causing illnesses.


Persistent Pain
Patients have feedback that despite having successful knee surgery, some of them still suffer from ongoing knee pain which is not foolproof.


Allergic Reactions
Patients may have allergic reactions to artificial knee joints as they may contain titanium or a cobalt-chromium-based alloy. Additional surgery may be required.
