Since 2000, the World Health Organization has been promoting the theme of "Bone and Joint Diseases". Since October 12th of each year as World Arthritis Day, this year has entered its fifteenth year. It is understood that there are currently 355 million people with arthritis worldwide. In Asia, one out of every six people develops arthritis, the world's number one disabling disease at some point in their lives. It is conservatively estimated that there are more than 100 million arthritis patients in China, and there is a tendency to become younger.
Arthritis usually occurs in the elderly, and the incidence increases with age. But now the trend of rejuvenation is becoming more and more obvious. For example, young people today do not pay attention to protecting the joints in summer, winter girls like to wear short skirts, excessive exercise, or live in wet and dark places for a long time. May suffer from arthritis.
It is important to point out that women who like to wear high heels are prone to degenerative knee arthritis due to excessive knee pressure. According to statistics, women wearing high-heeled shoes and often climbing stairs, the knee joint load pressure is three times the weight, when wearing high-heeled shoes down the stairs, it can be increased by 7-9 times. Experts recommend that female friends try to avoid squatting or climbing stairs, and do not choose activities that have a greater impact on the knee joint. As long as you pay attention to the details in your life, you can effectively prevent degenerative knee arthritis from happening in advance. In addition to a pair of essential high-heeled shoes, low-heeled or flat-heeled shoes are more necessary for girls to help protect the knee cartilage from the pain.
The “sedentary family” is one of the most vulnerable to arthritis. In recent years, among arthritis patients, fewer and fewer people are engaged in heavy physical labor, while long-term desks and computers use computers to drive into the susceptible population of arthritis. The office crowd should pay attention to protecting the joints such as the shoulders, wrists, knees and ankles, and driving will gradually lead to the formation of joint disuse and degeneration. The long-term grasp of the steering wheel will increase the incidence of wrist syndrome.
It is reported that arthritis is one of the most common chronic diseases, there are more than 100 kinds. According to statistics, 50% of people over the age of 50 in China are osteoarthritis patients, 90% of people over 65 years old are osteoarthritis patients; women have three times the probability of rheumatoid arthritis, 35-50 The age is the peak of the disease.
