Stop kneeling.   That's how I found out that I had OA.   I had little trouble with my knees til an all day cleaning spree and a lot of kneeling on ceramic tile.   Fast forward to two weeks on crutches and synvisc injections and Im still in pain.   Im sure the OA was there before but the kneeling just brought it to a head.

I have exactly the same..appeared out of nowhere several weeks ago.. Now I can't kneel which greatly affects my workouts and my life. I will be having xrays done but is there any treatment?  Kneeling is a natural reflex and it difficult not to do it.
