Question: What does a blunt force trama to aknee with osteoarthritis do? My husband didnt know he had osteoarthritis in his knee until a car hit him while he was walking. The car hit his left knee (the osteoarthritic Knee). He had no pain or mobility issuse until the car hit him, so what would that do to increase the pain or add to the trama already there? I heard that it can cause frgments from the bone to dislodge no sure though.

Answer: yes, it can cause more pain along with a host of mobility problems and possible cartilage damage as well as bone fragments to move around, also fluid might build up in this knee now
