Brian Carr, MD, discusses results of the Standing Up to Knee Pain: The Physical, Social, and Mental Impact of Knee OA survey, which polled 500 US adults who have been treated for chronic knee pain and/or osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee. It found that although 100% of patients have tried some form of treatment to address their pain, a staggering 97% still report that their daily lives are negatively impacted by their condition. The majority (75%) had trouble climbing stairs and exercising, and more than one-half reported that knee pain impaired their overall health and fitness.
Also, Physician’s Weekly’s editorial Board member Alex McDonald, MD, speaks with Dana Corriel, MD, a board-certified internist, entrepreneur & digital strategist. She is the founder of an online platform that works to centralize the efforts of verified health experts (@SoMeDocs). They have a great conversation about the potential of entrepreneurship among doctors!
