A new study in Lancet has shown the dramatic consequences of getting a knee or hip replaced before the age of 70. You have a 35% chance you will require that joint to be replaced again in your lifetime, which are huge odds. Are patients aware of these odds? If you wait until after 70, the study suggests you risk is only 5%.
All the more reason to keep following your conservative treatment plan, which of course involves a good hands on therapist like your osteopath at city osteopathy.
