Without doubt, this is true of most people… we will have to come to terms with the issue of osteoarthritis in our lives. Well, if you don’t agree, I like to let you know that currently, one in every four people has it, and the number of people who have it is on the rise. In fact, over 66% of the people who have it are under 65 according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP).
To be specific, the CDCP says, “Arthritis affects more than 52 million adults in the United States alone and is the most common cause of disability.” Well, we all know that it is not given the attention of other maladies …both public awareness and treatment.
But the truth is that Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis of the knee. Besides the fact that it is called degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis is characterized by progressive erosion of cartilage. Yes, as the protective cartilage wears off the knees, the bones are exposed within the joint.
However, Arthritis should not be taken lightly as it can have several effects and particularly different diseases in children, adults and the elderly. In fact, today there are more than 200-250 distinct types of arthritis. But these are generically called rheumatism.
Nevertheless, the causes of these diseases are still unknown but are being well studied by means of molecular biology. On the other hand, there has been significant advancement in the field of the treatment.
But facts remain that the sooner it starts, the better the results from treatment, as well as the chance of delaying the progression of the disease thus avoiding undesirable consequences.
The fundamental truth is that it is most commonly found to affect people after 65 years and older, but not everyone will notice its progression! The reasons for this has been attributed to many factors such as weight, type of work, physical activity, etc. which may accelerate or delay osteoarthritis.
