How is obesity related to knee pain? | Dr. Sandeep Singh | CARE Hospitals

Dr. Sandeep Singh, consultant orthopedic surgeon, CARE Hospitals, Bhubaneswar, talks about how many people who are overweight or obese experience knee pain. In many cases, losing weight can help reduce pain and lower the risk of osteoarthritis. Obesity is also one of the most prevalent risk factors for osteoarthritis of the knee. By itself, obesity is thought to account for one-third of all knee osteoarthritis cases. It is thought to be the primary preventable cause of osteoarthritis in women and the second most common preventable cause in men. Obese individuals have a 4–10-fold higher risk of developing knee osteoarthritis than non-obese people. #CARE hospitals #TransformingHealthcare #kneepain #obesity To know more about Dr. Sandeep Singh, visit https://www.carehospitals.com/doctor/bhubaneswar/sandeep-singh-orthopaedic-doctor CARE Hospitals is widely considered to be the best hospital in Bhubaneswar, India.
