DJO Global recently unveiled an ultralight knee brace for people suffering from osteoarthritis.
Close to 40% of elderly Americans are obese or have osteoarthritis of the knee, or both, which, on average, eliminates 3.5 years of a positive quality of life for seniors, according to new research.
Patients with severe osteoarthritis of the knee, which is common in seniors, experienced better leg functioning before knee replacement surgery and faster recovery times when they completed a preoperative exercise program.
A new study has found that the cost associated with caring for osteoarthritis patients tops $185.5 billion per year and is dramatically higher for women than for men.
Seniors with osteoarthritis pain may benefit from a popular Chinese martial art. Practicing two hours of Tai Chi per week has been shown to reduce pain in older adults, a new study found.
