Osteoarthritis is the commonest form of arthritis
The most affected joint is the knee joint; the person first feels the knee pain. It also affects the other joints; like hips, joints of hand, spine, and feet.
OA is caused because the cushions that cover the bone ends called cartilage, start deteriorating with time, and become rough and causing irritation. In most cases, Osteoarthritis causes are not clear. Many factors cause osteoarthritis including – age, excess weight, injury to the knee joint, muscle weakness, or family history. There are many risk factors of OA but the commonest risk factor is growing age. OA can happen in young adults – mostly due to knee joint injury. OA usually occurs in older people who are over the age of 45, women are more prone to have OA than men. A current study claims that osteoarthritis is so common that it beats many other diseases in India such as diabetes. How can I differentiate that my knee pain is due to arthritis or something else? There are few things that are common with osteoarthritis:
- Pain in your knees, pain aggravates with exertion
- You are taking medicine to get rid of the pain
- Facing pain and difficulty while climbing stairs and standing up from the ground
- Having a clicking and popping sound during joint movement
- Sometimes you may feel swelling in your joint
All these symptoms you face in your day-to-day activity regularly.
- In the advanced disease stage, leg deformities are visible.
How can I prevent it?
Alternative medications such as homeopathy, Ayurveda, and other medications may provide some relief from osteoarthritic pain but they are short-lived. Treatment depends on your joint condition.
If your joint condition is in the early stage:
Medication – Can help reduce inflammation
Physiotherapy – Will help in building the muscle power
Regenerative medicine- Treating the root cause of osteoarthritis with excellent results
If your joint condition is in the last stage:
Joint Replacement is the last option for you, which is highly invasive.
What if not treated?
If not treated or neglected, it can lead to severe deformities like bow legs and kissing knees or knock knees and these deformities make people disabled and dependent. Without treatment, day-to-day activities are highly compromised and you will be restricted to only one place. Problems such as high blood pressure and raised blood sugar levels to result from decreased activity levels along with that muscle mass are degraded day-by-day.
