Is it OK to run with knee pain? Is it a harbinger of osteoarthritis? Doctors usually advise patients with knee pain to forgo jogging and instead, take up walking out of concern it will lead to structural damage within the knees, but apparently, there is no increased risk of symptomatic knee osteoarthritis among runners as compared to non-runners, researchers report. 
 
In this slideshow, we feature some of the latest studies on knee osteoarthritis with findings that may surprise you.

jogging causes greater impact to the knee joint than running. Walking causes the least. Weight transmitted thru the knees joint is obviously one of the most important factors. I Recall a study many years ago that stated that six hundred times the body weight is concentrated thru the small surface area of the knee joint. Any type of weight bearing will have a negative impact on any degree of osteoarthritis on the knee or any other weight earring joint.

Jogging causes more stress on the knee joint than running. With that being said, don't do either if you have osteoarthritis of the knees.

Do non-weight bearing exercises.

Fast walk or regular walk and NOT on cement.
and hills/ramps are better than stairs.
