According to recent reports, India may become osteoarthritis capital of the world with 60 million cases by 2025. The most prevalent form of arthritis in India is osteoarthritis that affects almost 15 million people annually. The team also highlighted the fact that lack of awareness among public is one of the primary reasons why most of those suffering from orthopedic problems suffer in pain. Prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the joints, bones, spine and hips pose a significant concern in India today.
Dr. Harshavardhan Hegde, Executive Director, Fortis Escorts Bone & Spine Institute said during his talk, “With the significant rise of bone & spine disease in India, it becomes imperative to spread as much awareness as possible about the diseases and their causes. Exercise and healthy lifestyle at all level play a major role in preventing a large number of bone & spine diseases. Weight management, adequate vitamins levels and healthy diet can also go a long way in preventing and controlling diseases related to the bone & spine."
