“Studies have shown that when x-rayed, up to 85% of adults with no history of knee pain have x-rays that show knee arthritis. This means that there is little correlation between the degree of arthritis seen on x-ray, and actual pain.” (Bedson 2008)
In fact a relatively large study showed that when patients had a positive attitude about their knee OA, they were far more likely to participate in a daily walking program and therefore had better outcomes (White et al 2012).
