Knee Osteoarthritis Prevalent Among the Younger Population


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/28/2015 -- Arthritis conditions are affecting millions of people from around the world today. The development of arthritis is associated with aging as many who suffer from it belong to the elderly age bracket. However, it seems that arthritic conditions such as knee osteoarthritis are becoming more prevalent in younger individuals.

Research reveals knee osteoarthritis has become prevalent among the younger population. The condition is affecting individuals below 65 years old. Knee osteoarthritis can place sufferers in a negatively life-changing situation. It can make them more susceptible to immobility and depression, which often leads to obesity and other conditions.

The American College of Rheumatology presented a study that found the sufferers of knee osteoarthritis are becoming younger compared to the situation around two decades ago. Researchers believe that if the number of sufferers continues to increase, it can add a significant burden to the healthcare system of the United States.

"Knee osteoarthritis can reduce the quality of life of sufferers. This is why they are resorting to pain management measures that can help them achieve some improvements in pain and mobility," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

The researchers conducted a second study, and they found that exercise and weight loss have helped dramatically in reducing the pain as well as improving the function of knee osteoarthritis sufferers. Today, more and more people are engaging in physical activities to improve their overall health.

Elena Losina, PhD, co-director of the Orthopaedic and Arthritis Center for Outcomes Research from the Brigham and Women's Hospital, believes that obesity may have played a role in the increasing number of younger people who suffer from knee osteoarthritis.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention considers obesity as a national epidemic. Obesity is associated with the development of a number of conditions, including knee osteoarthritis. The condition is also linked with the increasing number of people who suffer from knee injuries. According to research, there are many individuals who are under the age of 65 and who underwent knee replacement surgeries. This demonstrates that the sufferers of knee osteoarthritis have become younger and younger.

Individuals who suffer from knee osteoarthritis and other arthritic conditions often resort to the use of natural alternatives such as glucosamine supplements. Pain relief drugs have been associated with side effects, and this has led many sufferers to turn to glucosamine supplements.

Glucosamine is believed to reduce pain and improve the ability of sufferers to move and function on a daily basis. This natural alternative is also believed to repair cartilage in the joints (
