According to a report, one in every six people in our country is suffering from arthritis. Arthritis problem is more common in women than men. Dr. Mishra said, “The outbreak of knee arthritis in our country is twice as much compared to China and 15 times as compared to the western countries, and this is because of the genetic and other causes of Indian people suffering from arthritis of knee The risk is high. ”
He said that our life style is also responsible for knee arthritis, under which knee joint is used more in sitting and sitting. Due to this, the knee is quickly damaged in comparison to other joints of the body. In our country, people sit idle while worshiping, eating food, cooking, sitting etc. Apart from this, there is a need to sit on the knees in traditional style toilets.
