- According to a study conducted by researchers at John Hopkins University School of Medicine, individuals suffering from osteoarthritis are more likely to experience knee pain if they don’t get enough sleep.
- The team of researchers also found people with knee osteoarthritis and insomnia are more likely to suffer from a nervous system disorder called central sensitization.
- Dr. Virgil Stenberg of the Helen Foundation discusses a study that knee osteoarthritis pain worsens with insomnia and how Microdose Therapy™ can help.
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that slowly wears down the protective cartilage on bones. This disease typically affects joints in the hands, knees, hips and spine, and can cause intense pain, decreased range-of-motion and joint stiffness. According the World Health Organization (WHO), roughly one in 10 men, and one in five women over 60 are affected by osteoarthritis.
Given the impact of this condition, researchers at John Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD, began investigating the effects of insomnia on knee osteoarthritis patients specifically. What researchers found was that knee osteoarthritis patients with insomnia have more pain and worse physical function than those without insomnia.
Furthermore, it was also discovered that knee osteoarthritis patients with insomnia are more likely to suffer from central sensitization, which is a nervous system disorder that increases sensitivity to pain and lowers the threshold for tolerating discomfort.
