Knee Arthiritis Treatment Without Surgery Now Availble In India
Bangalore,17 Feb, 2010 : What is Knee Arthritis?
Knee arthritis or osteoarthritis is the most common type of knee ailment. Also called wear-and-tear arthritis or degenerative joint disease, knee arthritis is characterized by progressive wearing away of the cartilage of the knee joint. As the protective cartilage is worn away by arthritis, bare bone is exposed within the joint and the rubbing of the bones gives pain which progresses with time if left untreated.
Pain in the knee joints, crackling sounds in the knee joints while walking known as crepitus, difficulty in climbing and getting down stairs, restricted movements of the knee joint, occasional swelling, pain while squatting or sitting cross legged, difficulty or inability to sit on the floor and deformity of the knee joints are be some of the problems faced by the patients suffering from degenerative osteoarthritis of the knee joints.
Knee arthritis typically affects patients over 45 years of age but incidence at lesser age is also becoming more prevalent. It is more common in patients who are overweight, or with patients who have a genetic predisposition to this condition. Other factors that can contribute to developing knee arthritis include trauma to the knee, meniscus tears or ligament damage, and fractures to the bone around the joint.
Once developed, the disease progresses and the condition is likely to get worse with time.
What Treatment Options are available in mainstream medicine?
Mainstream medicine does not have any effective treatment for knee arthritis except for surgeries which are expensive, not always suitable for all patients specially the elderly and sometimes associated with complications. So patients who start complaining of knee pain are initially treated with pain-killers (NSAIDs) which do nothing to cure the disease but simply suppress the symptoms. Long term use of pain killers has its own side effects and it can lead to stomach ulcers and damage of other vital organs like kidneys and liver, depending on the usage and general health of the patient.
This has a spiral effect on the overall health as the condition of knee worsens, the pain-killers and local cortisone injections will have less and less effect in reducing the pain and the patient will tend to reduce on activities leading to a sedentary lifestyle. This approach to save the joint will in turn give rise to the other problems and aggravate other pre-existing conditions that the patient might have like heart disease, diabetes and renal function deficiency.
Finally, the arthritis will reach to a stage where surgery is the only answer .You will be required to undergo a total knee replacement or partial knee replacement depending on the extent of your arthritis.
The surgery is expensive and requires a rehabilitation period following the surgery and therefore it is not a quick fix. Also the outcome is varied and many patients specially the elderly ones or patients suffering from other conditions have a lot of associated risks and constraints.
It is important to underscore that a knee replacement surgery only replaces the cartilage which is only one of the 7 distinct structures of the knee and therefore the degeneration of all structures cannot be completely corrected or arrested by a knee replacement surgery.
