According to Dr. Nguyen Chi Lang, older adults are more likely to develop osteoarthritis such as osteoporosis, knee degeneration, spinal degeneration, cartilage degeneration, etc. Their bone and joint cartilage quality deteriorated. Since the ability to absorb calcium in the bone is less likely to cause osteoporosis.

Osteoporosis progression is silently natural, slow and manifesting as other diseases, but quite dangerous and obviously a painful both literally and figuratively, making mobility problems and travel difficulties..

There are many reasons causing osteoporosis that are mainly influenced by the age factor. Bone mineral density in the elderly will be significantly reduced. Over time, articular cartilage wears off, when worn more will cause joint pain, making travel difficult. The phenomenon of joint cartilage wear in knee joints, also known as knee osteoarthritis. In addition, people who are obese, overweight, young adult with Arthralgia, birth defects, metabolic diseases, and genetics also increase the risk of getting joint damage. 

Adults over 50 years of age, if you experience Joint Pain and Stiffness early in the morning right after waking up, or sudden joint pain when the weather changes, you may be suffering from arthritis in the elderly. Osteoarthritis often has serious impacts on health. Patients if not treated in time will lead to an easy bones break due to a slight injury. Even though some patients just slip even slightly in the sitting position causing Femoral Neck Fracture and Vertebral Fracture.

When experiencing joint aches, the patient should get an examination at a trusting medical center or hospital. It is best to find one specializes in joints and arthritis treatment to identify the cause of joints damage, to diagnose and begin treatment.

To prevent osteoarthritis, older adults should have a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids (commonly found in nuts). Green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and kale, can also help reduce inflammation and pain. Cold weather associated with joint pain is due to lack of work out and less exercise. Therefore, older adults need exercise to help lubricate the joints as well as reduce inflammation and associated pain.
