London, UK (PRWEB UK) 23 July 2013 -- In the June 13th issue of The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the AAOS published a collaborative clinical practice guideline (CPG) on called “Treatment of Osteoarthritis (OA) of the Knee (Non-Arthroplasty)—2nd Edition.” (http://www.aaos.org/news/aaosnow/jun13/cover1.asp) This is to replace the 2008 AAOS CPG, due to methodological concerns regarding the evidence used in the first CPG.
With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine took a closer look at osteoarthritis, and efforts currently underway to better understand the condition. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “One of the main issues with treating such a condition is that doctors don’t know that much about it. There’ve been exhaustive tests into the clinical causes of the condition and just what causes the bones and joints to degrade as they do in the first place but simpler things like, why it’s such a painful condition are still unknowns to the modern medicine.”
Yourwellness Magazine commented that current research is looking into the cause and route of pain through the body, and is particularly concerned with why a condition which is centred on joins can have just a radical effect on the nerves. Yourwellness Magazine explained that osteoarthritis can cause a hyper sensitivity in the skin, which can get so bad that sufferers might be in pain due to having something as soft and light as a cotton bud brushed across their skin. Yourwellness Magazine noted that results of such studies are yet to come forward, osteoarthritis sufferers may be reassured to know that not only are scientists trying to find clinical causes, they’re looking into the roots of the pain itself.
