When The Pain Of Knee Wear Wears You Down, Talk To Us

By the time we see many osteoarthritis sufferers, the effects are often pronounced. People who used to regularly run, swim or ski for miles now struggle to walk.

They can’t manage the simple things in life like popping to the shops or walking the dog. They can’t even get a proper night’s sleep.

But it is possible to escape the constant pain of osteoarthritis. In fact, every year, the knee surgeons of Yorkshire Knee Clinic help more people in the UK escape osteoarthritis than almost anyone else.
