Worldwide medical health insurance customers might be interested to learn that people suffering with depression are likely to experience worse symptoms of knee arthritis.
A study published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery found that people who had mild to moderate knee arthritis were more likely to see their condition affected by the mental health problem.
Tae Kyun Kim, study author and director of the Division of Knee Surgery and Sports Medicine at Seoul National University Bundang Hospital's Joint Reconstruction Center, said that patients even reported having significant levels of pain from the arthritis when their X-rays suggested that the illness was not significant.
He added: "The relationship between pain and depression suggests that both should be considered by physicians when treating patients with knee osteoarthritis, particularly in those with X-rays not indicating severe damage to the joint."
