dear ,first of all this osteoarthritis is quite common in your age,but if you do a regular exercies for ur knee strengthenig , for your hamstrings and quadriceps muscle , and some precouation like you should not sit on floor , use western kind of commode chair,do not sit cross leg , do not stand for a longer period of time, use hot packs on the area or cold packs to the area swollen, and take some calcium and do walk for at least half an hour daily this could be your permanent solution.
