Treatment of Knee Arthrosis Varies According to the Person

Although knee arthrosis, known as knee calcification in the society, is known as an elderly disease, it can occur at any age. Expressing that knee arthrosis does not appear suddenly, Orthopedics and Traumatology specialist Prof. Dr. Hasan Bombacı stated that arthrosis has a long development process which lasts 10-15 years and warned that measures should be taken against it at an early age.

Arthrosis is a problem that greatly affects daily life and working life, especially in advanced stages. Knee arthrosis, which is considered in the category of diseases due to the body's inability to adapt to modern life, is therefore considered in the “diseases of incompatibility” group. Saying that there are studies showing that the incidence of knee arthrosis has increased significantly in the industrial age, Yeditepe University Koşuyolu Hospital’s Orthopedics and Traumatology specialist Prof. Dr. Hasan Bombacı pointed out that although it is known as an elderly disease in the society, knee arthritis can occur at any age.

Prof. Dr. Hasan Bombacı has said that a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, metabolic diseases, excessive smoking and especially sports activities made without reasonable knowledge cause the body to wear out and cause cartilage to deteriorate in the earlier period.
