RAJOURI: The World Arthritis Day was celebrated in District Hospital under the supervision of Medical Superintendent (MS) Dr Mehmood Hussain Bajar on Thursday.
Many patients suffering from Rheumatic and Musculoskeletal Diseases (RMDs) were examined by the Consultants Orthopaedics and delivered physiotherapy/Panchkarma services by physiotherapists and AYUSH doctors.
The patients were also sensitised regarding the preventive, promitive, curative and rehabilitive aspects of the RMDs.
MS expressed that World Arthritis Day (WAD) is a global awareness-raising day and he informed that in 2017, WAD is part of the ‘Don’t Delay, Connect Today!’–often received delayed or no diagnosis.
He further informed that early diagnosis is key to preventing further damage, but RMDs often receive delayed or no diagnosis.
The campaign aims to raise awareness regarding the importance of early diagnosis in preventing further damage to those living with RMDs, and to encourage timely access to evidence-based treatment, he added.
