Degenerative joint disease. In this cartilage in joints break down, often in hips, knees, and spine.. Primary osteoarthritis is mostly related to aging. With aging, the water content of the cartilage increases and the protein makeup of cartilage degenerates. Repetitive use of the joints over the years causes damage to the cartilage that leads to joint pain and swelling

Knee osteoarthritis Ruptured patelofemoral ligament subluxation Needs surgical intervention to repair or removal and physiotherapy later on . Reassurance and regular evaluation required to conclude.
