According to a new study, physiotherapy can be an effective non-surgical option for those suffering from osteoarthritis. Christopher M. Powers, co-director of Musculoskeletal Biomechanics Research Laboratory at the University of Southern California, said: “Many times knee pain is associated with abnormal movement patterns that cause increased stress on the joint. “Arthroscopic surgery does little to correct the dynamic factors that may be contributing to knee pain and pathology. In a study presented by researchers from Leiden University Medical Center, Netherlands, it was shown that “people diagnosed with undifferentiated rheumatoid arthritis could have their disease outlook changed significantly if the proper treatment is given at the right time.” The study stresses the early treatment of rheumatoid arthritis since this can considerably change the track of the disease.
