Osteoarthritis of the Knee

Most people might think that Knee Osteoarthritis occurs only in the elderly. However, age is not the only factor that causes the Knee Osteoarthritis. Obesity, hereditary traits, joint trauma, aesthetics, other illnesses, or even gender are considered as just some of the possible risky factors of Knee Osteoarthritis syndrome.

“Over the last few years, my knee arthritis got worse and worse anytime I walked. I have so much pain,” said Morris, an 80 year-old patient who suffered from Knee Osteoarthritis. “I went to the hospital and they told me that my knee was bad and that I needed an operation on them. I said no. Then I heard about Absolute Health so I went to see them. The doctor looked at my X-ray image and agreed that yes, it was very bad but said they would try a course of injections and other supplements and see what happens,” said Morris.

After deciding to take the treatment from Absolute Health, his knee is recovering step by step. “Around 3 months, I must say I’m excited and my knee looks a lot better. I move flexibly and I can lift my knee much better than I used to. I’m walking much easier. So the doctor still wants to carry on the treatment for a few more times and we will see how it goes. All I can say is thank you very much to Absolute Health, their doctors and staff. Thank you for giving me a chance to walk again properly,” said Morris.

Knee Osteoarthritis is a silent disease that can at best disturb your routine or your favorite activities and at worse can critically and significantly affect your quality life. It is not only a disease for the elderly and should be of concern to all people in society. Everyone should be aware that this disease can occur with anybody who lives a life with risk factors.
