The condition of Osteoarthritis, which is known as degeneration of joints and occurs at multiple locations of the body, including joints, hips, hands, and feet, is becoming an unavoidable condition among men from ages 30-45 as there is a spike from 5% to nearly 25% cases of this condition at present.
This condition, which is neglected by giving it a name of a simple pain or sprain due to gym or sports activity at an earlier age, is becoming a problem for men in their 30's. Men's movement has been affected due to negligence in early childhood and growing years and is now appearing as swelling and severe pain in multiple body locations.
Dr. Sai Laxman Anne, Head of Orthopaedics at KIMS Kondapur, has named this condition to be progressive. The work from a home culture that limits physical activity and low exposure to sunlight and weight gain due to binge eating has been the main reasons for Osteoarthritis among youngsters.
According to health experts, this condition usually aggravates when the cartilage in joints goes weak and gets damaged. But the oil-rich junk foods that are proven harmful for the cartilage are why many youngsters face this issue.
Besides, neglecting injuries and not getting complete treatment during their growing stages could be a pointer for this condition. The typical age group of this condition was set at 55-60-year-olds, but there has been a shift in trend as senior citizen count dropped, and the focus is on men and women in 30s. This condition can be controlled if detected and treated earlier as the aggravated conditions can lead to severe troubles and months of bedridden lifestyle.
