New Method of Joint Replacement for Seniors in Pain

Seniors are finding relief from severe and chronic joint pain caused by arthritis.

Oct. 26, 2011 - PRLog -- The Society of Certified Senior Advisors has released an article that discusses how seniors are finding relief from the severe and chronic joint pain caused by arthritis. There are over 32 million people that are affected by arthritis, eighty percent of those have some limitation in their movement and 25 percent are not able to perform major Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).

Excerpts from article:

Common Misconceptions About Joint Replacement

Joint replacement surgery patients often say how much better off they are after the surgery, leading others to gravitate toward the same option. However, orthopedic surgeons are not quick to put you in their surgery schedules. Patients may feel they are ready, but there is enough misinformation circulating about joint replacements that should be addressed first. Some common misconceptions about joint replacement are:

-Better post-operative range of motion. This is just not true, explains Dr. Kevin Bozic, MD, MBA, Vice Chairman of UCSF’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery. “While this is an option that will take away the pain for patients, increased range of motion is not a reality with these surgeries. Whatever your range of motion is before the surgery, it will remain the same after the surgery. You just won’t have the pain associated with the movement anymore. The main goal of joint replacement surgery is to relieve pain.”

-It is for seniors only. Active adults of any age experience pain in their joints, so people aren’t waiting to become seniors to have their joints replaced. Because the surgery options are becoming less invasive, more people in their 30s and 40s are having joint replacement surgeries.    The younger the joint replacement patient is, the shorter time the joint will last. This is because that person is typically harder on the joint because they more active, causing more wear and tear on the joint.
