Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) :
The monetary burden of OA is considerable. A Canadian Osteoarthritis Research Program study discovered that the average care price each patient was USD 12,200 for every year. Around 80% were indirect costs linked with lost time from employment and unpaid caregivers. Based on the Arthritis Alliance of Canada, it is projected that the existing total Canadian economic burden for OA is USD 27.5 billion, with direct costs accounting for around USD 10.2 billion. Government programs are liable for maximum direct prices comprising healthcare provider appointments, diagnostic processes, and pre and post care for surgery. Companies’ health benefit plans typically cover a share of the specialized services (e.g., physiotherapy), assistive devices (e.g., custom knee braces), and drugs essential to treat or relieve this condition. Companies are also obstructed by the indirect prices linked with time away from work and loss of yield accompanying OA. Effective treatments not only result in optimistic medical and health results, including quality of life, it can also have a positive economic influence on the workroom efficiency and nonattendance owing to reduced physician visits, hospitalizations, and reduced recovery episodes.
The three injection segment was the largest market in 2019. Doctor’s typically choose hyaluronic acid injection treatments that are implemented as 3 injections over a span of 3 weeks. They recommend hyaluronic acid injections to patients presenting with chronic, low-grade OA which is frequently contained to the medial, lateral, or anterior compartment. Patients with mild arthritis often have substantial relief from viscosupplementation and habitually arrive at the clinic every 6 to 8 months asking for repeat injections with repeated symptomatic improvement. Doctors are unlikely to recommend hyaluronic acid injections to patients with substantial inflammation or alleged synovitis since the anti-inflammatory effects are not stronger than those of corticosteroid or platelet-rich plasma injections.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a progressive degenerative disorder of the cartilage and is one of the 10 leading causes of disease burden in Australia. In an Australian survey of older adults (over 65 years of age) living in the community, over 55% of females and 40% of males experienced some form of long-term arthritis or rheumatism. It has been estimated that in European and North American population’s one -third of all adults aged 25-74 years have features of OA as determined by radiographic methods. Osteoarthritis sufferers can experience a significant loss in the quality of life. In a study comparing quality of life of OA sufferers over 65 years of age with control patients suffering no chronic illnesses, OA patients scored significantly lower than controls on all quality of life domains. In an Australian community survey of older adults (65 years or older), presence of self-reported OA was a significant predictor of higher disability scores when assessed by a Health Assessment.
