To those who suffer from knee pain

Pain of the joints (arthralgia) disturbs daily life, causing difficulty walking for example. The outpatient clinic of our hospital receives many patients in whom knee pain has advanced to a level causing difficulty walking.
In our daily clinical practice, we manage these patients, always bearing in mind: "What we should do is to help these patients restore walking capability, by alleviating the current difficulty in walking due to knee pain." However, we often feel that treatment would be easier if the patient had consulted us earlier.
Knee pain is attributable to various factors. Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the factors often seen. Prevalence of knee osteoarthritis per 100,000 people is estimated as *1,770 among male and *2,693 among female. Unfortunately, restoration of normal status is unlikely once the knee has been destroyed.

This fact is not widely known and lack of awareness contributes to delayed clinic visits by patients with knee pain to medical facilities.
The website "Healthy-Knee.com" is intended to supply information to individuals suffering from knee pain so that correct knowledge of knee pain can be disseminated to these people and support provided for actions/behaviors promoting early pain relief.
We hope that this website will help you resolve your knee pain and lead to an active daily life.
