Studies Revealed Increasing Number Of The Younger Population Suffer From Knee Osteoarthritis
(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 30, 2015 ) Orlando, FL -- Arthritic conditions such as knee osteoarthritis are prevalent among individuals who are undergoing the aging process. Age has been one of the major factors that contributes to the development of the condition. However, it seems that knee osteoarthritis is affecting more younger patients nowadays.
Studies revealed that an increasing number of people who belong to the younger population suffer from knee osteoarthritis. These patients are those who are younger than 65 years old. This news can be very alarming since there are certain comorbidities of arthritis that are negatively life-changing.
"The younger population ought to enjoy and live a high quality of life. It is not a secret that arthritis can cause pain and suffering, and when this happens to them, they become susceptible to various conditions such as obesity due to immobility, as well as depression," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
In the study presented at the American College of Rheumatology meeting, it was found that the age of individuals who were diagnosed with knee osteoarthritis became younger than it was about two decades ago. Researchers anticipated that the finding could lead to additional burdens on the United States healthcare system.
The good news is that in the second study conducted by the researchers, it was found that the combination of weight loss and exercise can aid in pain reduction as well as an improvement in the function of individuals who are suffering from knee osteoarthritis.
According to the Brigham and Women's Hospital's co-director of the Orthopaedic and Arthritis Center for Outcomes Research, Elena Losina, PhD, it may be that the increasing prevalence of knee osteoarthritis among younger adults is partly due to obesity. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has declared that there is a national obesity epidemic, which is normally associated with the development of a number of ailments. The prevalence of knee osteoarthritis has also been linked to the increasing number of knee injuries.
Research also found that around 40 percent of all the knee replacement surgeries are performed in patients under the age of 65. This means that the patients of knee osteoarthritis are becoming younger and younger.
Arthritis has continually been affecting many people from around the world today. The good news is that there are many treatments and remedies that are considered to be effective by many people. Natural alternatives such as curcumin supplements are believed to help improve pain and overall condition among sufferers (http://amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
