An ortho awareness programme was organised by Fortis Hospital for patients and attendants at Fortis Medcentre, Ferozepur Road, on Wednesday.

Free consultation and medical check-up was also conducted at the camp.

Director of orthopaedics Dr Sanjeev Mahajan said, "The most common cause of joint pain is typically some form of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Most arthritic pain is a chronic condition that must be managed daily."

He gave the patients insight about the disease and said that taking care of small things could prevent further damage to the joints.

He told them about the knee pain treatment, which can help in minimising the knee pain.

Mahajan said, "Knee pain can develop from everyday activities such as ligament tears, overuse, or injury. The knee is the largest joint in the body and is prone to sore joints, tendonitis and arthritis."

Head of physiotherapy Dr Som Gupta was also present at the camp.
