Hyderabad, 13th October 2022: The Free Bone & Joint check-ups organized by Kamineni Hospitals, LB Nagar, and King Koti, Hyderabad, on the occasion of World Arthritis Day have received a great response. Kamineni Hospitals announced that 520 people availed of the Free Bone & Joint tests on Wednesday, October 12, 2022. The time of the check-ups is from 10 am to 4 pm.
X-Ray, BMD, Orthopaedic Consultation, and Physiotherapy Consultation are provided as part of these free bone & Joint check-ups. Also, the patients will be extended a 20% discount on TKR surgery, if advised by the doctor.
Dr. C Kama Raj, Senior Orthopaedic Surgeon, Kamineni Hospitals, LB Nagar, says, “Many people misunderstand the symptoms of arthritis as problems of aging. The prevalence of this myth is also due to the fact that the majority of arthritis sufferers are over 65 years of age. But almost thirty percent of people under the age of 65 suffer from this disease without recognizing it as arthritis. Some of them are young men and women below 20 years of age.”
“Different types of arthritis differ in terms of the age at which the disorder affects a person and the type and number of joints affected. It is crucial to realize that arthritis is a symptom rather than a disease on this World Arthritis Day, in my opinion. We can only implement the ideal treatment to relieve the patient’s pain and suffering when we investigate and identify the primary cause of the patient’s arthritis.” Dr. C Kama Raj added.
