Non-Pharmacological Treatment to Open New Growth Frontiers for Athletic Knee Treatment Market: Fact.MR

Documented instance of side effects induced by orally consumed drugs is spurring approaches such as physiotherapy, bracing and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation

Fact.MR’s ongoing global athletic knee treatment market study projects a steady growth forecast through 2021, as the healthcare industry reorients its treatment priorities in the aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic. A further incline is anticipated, as public sports and athletic events resume in forthcoming years.

The National Safety Council (NSC), US, estimates that in 2019 alone, exercise with or without exercise equipment accounted for about 468,000 injuries. Bicycling followed with around 417,000 injuries, while basketball resulted in 404,000 incidents, and lastly football with 292,000 injuries. It estimated that most of these injuries resulted from unintended collisions between persons or with an object, mostly in the age group of 15 to 24 years.

Consequently, key manufacturers are augmenting their production capacities to accelerate drug development. Leading pharmaceutical provider Pfizer, for instance, is currently working on determining the effectiveness of its NCT02528188 (Tanezumab) candidate among knee and hip osteoarthritis patients. Besides, alternative approaches incorporating non-pharmacological approaches are also being investigated.

“Elevating concerns over possible side-effects of orally administered drugs is spurring drives for alternative treatment approaches, mostly reliant on non-pharmacological options, prompting manufacturers to develop advance knee pain management solutions,” says the Fact.MR analyst.
