The medical centre believes that surgery shouldn’t be the first line of treatment that one should take in addressing problems. Especially, with the treatment of knee osteoarthritis as it has been a widely acknowledged that before considering any form of knee replacement surgery, people experiencing this kind of pain can usually benefit from exploring non-invasive interventions, especially as part of a personalized treatment plan.
Inliven offers effective treatments on the varying knee pain and joint problems that a person can possibly incur due to daily activities and various other reasons.
As for the knee pain, there are many potential causes to it ranging from osteoarthritis in the elderly, to common traumatic injuries such as meniscal cartilage tears or ligament sprains in the young and active.
Other common conditions that can contribute to knee pain include knee- cap instability and chronic overuse. Knee pain and knee conditions are not an easy subject for any doctor to handle. It is important to find an expert who has a keen interest in the subject. The patient should be willing to take time to fully examine all aspects of the knee, as well as to get a comprehensive history of his knee pain and function. In light of this health case, Inliven recommends that a person suffering from knee pain should undergo a thorough knee pain assessment prior to any treatment.
In view of osteoporosis which is a bone condition characterized by low bone mass or decreased bone strength, it is a disease related to ageing whereby there is a decrease in new bone formation. As more calcium is lost from bone, it eventually weakens and becomes more prone to fractures especially in the hip, spine and wrist. Common symptoms are bone pain, especially in the spine and hips. Apart from pain, people with osteoporosis may suffer from weakness in the muscles, as well as stiffness in the bones. Many patients also complain about difficulty in carrying out their normal daily activities, such as lifting things and doing general exercises and household chores. Contrary to popular belief, it is not just calcium intake which determines bone health. Many other factors are also involved in the maintenance of strong bone mass as we age. Inliven’s treatment for osteoporosis includes bone and joint screening packages which help to detect problems early so they can prescribe a personalized treatment plan to start a patient’s journey to recovery.
To ensure the wellbeing of each patient is the ultimate goal of Inliven.
