osteoporosis

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a type of joint disease that results from breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone. The most common symptoms are joint pain and stiffness. Initially, symptoms may occur only following exercise, but over time may become constant. Other symptoms may include joint swelling, decreased range of motion, and, when the back is affected, weakness or numbness of the arms and legs. The most commonly involved joints are those near the ends of the fingers, at the base of the thumb, neck, lower back, knee, and hips. Joints on one side of the body are often more affected than those on the other. Usually the symptoms come on over years. It can affect work and normal daily activities. Unlike other types of arthritis, only the joints are typically affected.

oteoarthritis

Osteoporosis is the most common reason for a broken bone among the elderly.Bones that commonly break include the vertebrae in the spine, the bones of the forearm, and the hip.Until a broken bone occurs there are typically no symptoms. Bones may weaken to such a degree that a break may occur with minor stress or even spontaneously. A broken bone may lead to Chronic pain and a decreased ability to carry out normal activities.Osteoporosis may be due to lower than normal bone mass and greater than normal bone loss.

inflammatory joint disease

Inflammatory arthritis or Inflammatory joint diseases are a group of diseases which include rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthropathy, inflammatory bowel disease, adult-onset Still's disease, scleroderma, juvenile idiopathic arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). The symptoms of inflammatory arthritis are stiffness, pain, and swelling of the joints, restricted motion, and reduced physical strength. The other symptoms may include systemic complaints including fatigue. Treatments for inflammatory arthritis may vary by subtype, though they may include drugs like DMARDs (disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs) and tumor necrosis factor inhibitors.

back pain

Back pain can occur in any region of the back. It is divided into neck pain (cervical), middle back pain (thoracic), lower back pain(lumbar) or coccydynia (tailbone or sacral pain) based on the segment affected.The lumbar area is the most common area for pain, as it supports most of the weight in the upper body. Back pain may be acute, sub-acute, or chronicdepending upon the duration. The pain may be characterized as a dull ache, shooting or piercing pain, or a burning sensation. Discomfort can radiate into the arms and hands as well as the legs or feet, and may include numbness,or weakness in the legs and arms.

sports injury

Sports injuries are injuries that occur while exercising or while performing athletic activities. About 3 million avid sports competitors around 14 years of age, experience sports injuries annually which causes some loss of time of participation in the sport. The leading cause of death involving sports-related injuries, is brain injuries. When injured the nervous and vascular systemsare the two main systems affected .The origins in the body where numbness and tingling occurs upon sports injuries are usually the first signs of the body.

arthroscopy

Arthroscopy (also called arthroscopic or keyhole surgery) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure on a joint in which an examination and sometimes treatment of damage is performed using an arthroscope, an endoscope that is inserted into the joint through a small incision. Arthroscopic procedures can be performed during ACL reconstruction. While commonly used for meniscal injuries to the knee, this use is not supported by any evidence for its claimed positive results.

The advantage over traditional open surgery is that the joint does not have to be opened up fully. For knee arthroscopy only two small incisions are made, one for the arthroscope and one for the surgical instruments to be used in the knee cavity. This reduces recovery time and may increase the rate of success due to less trauma to the connective tissue. It has gained popularity due to evidence of faster recovery times with less scarring, because of the smaller incisions. Irrigation fluid (most commonly 'normal' saline) is used to distend the joint and make a surgical space.

joint replacement

Replacement arthroplasty or joint replacement surgery is a procedure of orthopedic surgery in which an arthritic or dysfunctional joint surface is replaced with an orthopedic prosthesis. Joint replacement is considered as a treatment for severe joint pain or dysfunction.

It is a form of arthroplasty, and is often indicated from various joint diseasesincluding osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

bone tumors

A bone tumor is a neoplastic growth of tissue in bone. Abnormal growths found in the bone can be either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Bone tumors may be classified as "primary tumors", which originate in bone or from bone-derived cells and tissues, and "secondary tumors" which originate in other sites and spread (metastasize) to the skeleton. Secondary malignant bone tumors are estimated to be more common than primary bone cancers.

bone infections

A bone infection, also called osteomyelitis, can result when bacteria or fungi invade a bone.In children, bone infections most commonly occur in the long bones of the arms and legs. In adults, they usually appear in the hips, spine, and feet.Bone infections can happen suddenly or develop over a long period of time. If they’re not properly treated, bone infections can leave a bone permanently damaged.

If your knee replacement fails, your doctor may recommend that you have a second surgery—revision total knee replacement. In this procedure, your doctor removes some or all of the parts of the original prosthesis and replaces them with new ones.Although both procedures have the same goal—to relieve pain and improve function—revision surgery is different than primary total knee replacement. It is a longer, more complex procedure that requires extensive planning, and specialized implants and tools to achieve a good result.
