Abstract:

Osteoarthritis knee is the most common joint disorder affecting nearly 10% of the world population. There are several non-modifiable and modifiable risk factors for OA Knees with obesity being the greatest modifiable risk factor. How excess weight influences OA is not clear. Obesity has both a mechanical and inflammatory component in the development and worsening of knee arthritis. Traditionally osteoarthritis knees have been treated with non-pharmacological, pharmacological and surgical methods. When OA Knee is associated with obesity where the situation is far more complex, these treatment methods are not effective. There is a need for paradigm shift from conventional to comprehensive treatment. A patient with OA and obesity knees suffers and not in isolation and the traditional treatment methods alone may not be enough. Yoga with its multidimensional approach of body, mind and soul implications could be an answer. Extensive research on the role of yoga as an add on in the treatment of OA knees associated with obesity has shown excellent to good results. My research studies were picked up by American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) in formulating the 2013 Non-Arthroplasty treatment guidelines for OA Knees. A broad-based treatment called wholistic treatment keeping yoga as the central option in the treatment of OA Knees and Obesity seems to be the best option.
