Latest treatment for knee arthritis and knee pain
Bangalore,25 Feb, 2010 : What is Knee Arthritis?
Knee arthritis or osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the knee joint that affects many people above 45 years. The most common symptom is knee pain but patients can have other symptoms like crackling sound when walking, limited mobility and even disability as the disease progresses.
The arthritis develops 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.
Some people 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.
If you have knee arthritis and not getting it treated, the more you walk the more the knee will hurt and more you will damage your knee. In time, running, sports and eventually walking may become impossible.
What Treatment Options are available with Knee Arthritis patients?
Mainstream medicine does not really have any effective treatment for knee arthritis except for surgeries which are expensive, not always suitable for all patients specially the elderly and does not give lasting results. So when patients 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 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 cur back on activities leading to a sedentary lifestyle. This approach to save the joint will in turn will 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 available to the mainstream medicine. You will be required to undergo a total knee replacement or partial knee replacement defending on the extent of your arthritis. The surgery is expensive and requires a long 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 one of the 7 distinct structures of the knee and therefore the degeneration cannot be completely corrected or arrested by a knee replacement surgery.
What is the latest treatment option for this condition?
It is actually very positive that the latest treatment option for knee arthritis is actually a 100% safe non surgical one which has been developed by a renowned orthopedic surgeon based in Bangalore.
Dr. Ashfakh Ahmed, the Director of Dr. Ahmeds Bangalore WellCare Center which is a specialized bone and joint clinic based in Bangalore has pioneered this non-surgical treatment in India. Being an orthopedic surgeon and having done hundreds of knee replacement surgeries, Dr. Ahmed believes that surgery should be last option to treat knee arthritis or knee pain. He has developed this treatment protocol called Knee Synthes which includes a series of therapy that is given over a period of 7 to 21 days to a patient to treat knee arthritis. The protocol includes some latest medical technologies, physical therapies and naturopathy and is the most unique treatment available anywhere in India.
This treatment is not only highly effective and affordable but also 100% safe with no side effects. It has also a long term benefit over surgeries. The patients who have undergone the treatment have experienced a 50% to 90% improvement over their condition after receiving the treatment and did not have to undergo surgery because the treatment aims at the root cause of pain and helps regeneration of cartilage and heals the complete knee structure.
