GPs urged to treat knee buckling in patients with osteoarthritis to prevent future falls


Yet another utterly stupid article and statement. When are researchers and doctors going to stop talking about PREVENTING things, all we do is postpone them until they occur at older ages when they are even more of a problem. It is as stupid as saying we prevent death, of course we don't we just keep people alive longer, often now too long. I walked out of GP 6m ago utterly sick of old age being seen as an illness, even completely demented doubly incontinent coprophagic patients needed full treatment for everything that cropped up rather than accepting that a decent chest infection is nature's way of bringing things to an end. Madness and I am glad to be out.
