Knee Dislocation - What Causes It?

Knee Dislocation - What Causes It?

Kneecap dislocation is a condition wherein the ligaments, responsible to bind the knee bones together, separate from each other. Although a very rare phenomenon in itself, knee dislocation can lead to permanent loss of mobility, if not taken care of immediately after diagnosis.

Causes
Knee dislocation can occur, if you have had recently survived any major accident such as a car crash or taken a fall from a high-storeyed building. A dislocated kneecap might cause significant numbness and severe pain below the knees. In some cases, the knee can get relocated on its own, which might cause the kneecaps to become swollen, numb and extremely painful to live with as time passes. The general structure of the leg might be significantly deformed due to a dislocated kneecap.

Treatments
The doctor can opt for a relocation of the lower leg to revert it to its former position.
b. To prevent future accidents, the doctor will recommend the use of an immobilizer to prevent the kneecaps from bending, and also to initiate the healing process.
c. Under extreme conditions, a dislocated knee might permanently damage the knee bones and the assorted tissues (ligaments). In such cases, a surgery will be recommended to restore normalcy.

It is recommended to regularly follow up with an orthopaedist to avoid future complications. One might also take the help of crutches which might help to move the kneecap in a much more controlled way. Just be a bit extra cautious while engaging in sports such as skiing, bungee jumping, or any other contact sports.

Shoulder Impingement - 4 Factors Behind It!

Shoulder Impingement - 4 Factors Behind It!

Shoulder impingement syndrome is a condition of the shoulder that is characterized by feeling of pain and weakness while lifting the arm overhead. A tendon, known as the rotator cuff tendon, attaches the tip of the upper arm to the shoulder. Impingement of the shoulder occurs when this tendon is trapped in the sub acromial space. The sub acromial space is the space near the shoulder joint where the tendon goes through.
When the tendon is trapped, it tends to scrape against the bone, resulting in excruciating pain. The pain aggravates if you are performing overhead movements such as painting or swimming.

The symptoms of shoulder impingement syndrome are:

  1. Feeling of pain while lifting the arm overhead
  2. Any lateral raising movement may also cause pain
  3. Sleeping at night may be problematic as lying on one side of the body may cause pain
  4. Clicking sounds while performing exercises such as the overhead press

Shoulder impingement syndrome can be caused by a number of factors; some of them are:

  1. Swelling of the rotator cuff: The rotator cuff tendon may swell on account of a shoulder injury.
  2. Bone spurs: If there are bone spurs in the sub acromial space, then it may narrow down the space making it easier for the tendon to rub against the bone.
  3. Accumulation of calcium: In some cases, calcium deposits tend to accumulate in the rotator cuff tendon leading to shoulder impingement.
  4. Inflammation of the bursa: The bursa is a sac filled with fluid cushions bones; inflammation of the bursa may also result in shoulder impingement

If you are suffering from a shoulder impingement syndrome, you may adopt the following strategies to deal with it:

  1. Rest: Make sure you do not perform activities that could aggravate the pain; allow the affected area to rest so that it heals faster.
  2. Medications: Medicines such as NSAIDs help in reducing the pain to provide temporary relief.
  3. Exercise: Adopt various external rotation exercises to strengthen the rotator cuff tendon and prevent shoulder impingement syndrome.

Know About The Main Reasons Of Bone Pain In Aging People

Know About The Main Reasons Of Bone Pain In Aging People

Bone pain in aging people is a common problem that men and women experience all over the world as they cross the age of 40. It can surface in any body part such as the neck, lower back, shoulder, or even nerve and many times, people ignore it thinking that it is a part of aging. Well, it is true that bone pain is a part of aging but it is also true that it is not something that should be ignored. It should be taken seriously and not brushed aside with self-medication or quiet suffering of the pain. Otherwise, it would turn chronic and affect the quality of life by completely hindering movement.

Timely consultation with an orthopedic surgeon is a must and if someone is in the aging group, he or she must know the reasons that lead to bone pain as they grow old.

  1. Wear and tear of joint cartilage: The bones have cartilage (tough elastic tissues) on their ends that produce a liquid called synovial fluid that keeps the joints lubricated. It supports the bones and provides them a cushion of sorts so that they can move properly and do not rub against each other. However, as one age, these cartilages become weak due to wear and tear, which slows down the production of the lubricating fluid. This leads to direct rubbing between the bones against each other and it causes pain, inflammation, and joint stiffness. This condition is called arthritis and affects the joints severely.
  2. Inactive lifestyle: A sedentary lifestyle is the most common reason for people experiencing joint and bone problems such as frozen shoulder, back pain, and the like. Inactivity and sitting in the same position for long hours causes the joints to become stiff and also prevents the body from getting adequate sun exposure, which is a must for the body to manufacture vitamin D. It also causes the body to gain weight resulting in a high BMI (body mass index). A high BMI means the individual is overweight and this additional weight puts a strain on the joints. This makes them swell, leading to pain and discomfort. Therefore, one should try to maintain an active lifestyle and refrain from sitting in the same position for long hours.
  3. Hormonal changes: A change in hormones, in men as well as women, is one prime reason for bone pain. In aging men, the gradual slump in sex hormones like testosterone causes the bones to lose density and as a result, they become fragile. The same holds true for women. When they reach the menopause stage, their bone tissues begin to lose minerals and calcium. Thus, they become brittle leading to a condition called osteoporosis.

Therefore, as soon as one crosses the age of forty or starts experiencing pain in the joints or bones, one should perceive it as a wake-up call. It is time to start caring for the bones and joints and it can be done through exercise, a nutritious diet rich in calcium, and regular bone checkup. Also, one should follow the instructions prescribed by an orthopedist, if any. This will keep the bones in good shape and one can age smoothly without facing any bone- or joint-related problems.

Brittle Bones Disease - Common Types Of It!

Brittle Bones Disease - Common Types Of It!

Osteogenesis Imperfecta or brittle bone disease weakens bones and causes them to break easily. This condition is frequently seen in children at birth, but it only develops in children who have a history of brittle bone disease in their family. Depending on the severity of the development of the disease, children can face anything from a couple of bone fractures to hearing loss, problems in the spinal cord, permanent deformation of bone structure, and heart failure. About one in every 20,000 babies develops brittle bone disease and it is equally spread out throughout different ethnic groups and genders.

Causes
It is caused due to a defect in the gene that helps in the production of type 1 collagen, which is a protein used in the creation of bones. This defect of gene is hereditary and is thought to be caused due to certain genetic mutations.

Types
There are four main types of brittle bone disease, namely Type 1 OI, Type 2 OI, Type 3 OI, and Type 4 OI.

  • Type 1 is the most common and mild with development of fragile bones that are prone to fracture, and teeth problems such as cavities and dental cracks. It is not common among adults.
  • Type 2 is the most severe form of the disease and potentially fatal. The body is unable to produce needed collagen resulting in formation of narrow chest, underdeveloped lungs and ill structured ribs in babies.
  • Type 3 OI results in fracture in bones in children even before birth and may result in worsening of bone structure deformities as the child grows up.
  • Lastly, Type 4 has symptoms both severe and mild. It is similar to Type 3 as it is caused due to production of lower quality collagen. Children suffering from this type of brittle bone disease are born bow legged, but the condition reduces over time.

Symptoms
The symptoms experienced by patients suffering from this condition vary from type to type. It is common knowledge that the most glaring symptom is fragility in bones, but there are many other symptoms that may appear as the cases grow more severe. Some patients report development of deformities, while others experience fractured bones without apt injuries. Loose joints, bowed arms and legs, week teeth, abnormal curving of the upper section of the spine, scoliosis, loss of hearing, heart defects, blue sclera (thinning in the collagen fibers), and respiratory issues are also frequently documented symptoms.

Tennis Elbow - Who Is At Risk?

Lateral epicondylitis, which is the medical name for tennis elbow, is a condition wherein the tendon in the upper arm develops a tear due to repeated motions. This is a very painful condition and can make your daily life difficult. It usually tends to affect your dominant arm i.e. the arm that you use the most.

Who does it affect and why does it happen?
As mentioned earlier, tennis elbow occurs due to repetitive similar movements of the elbows, forearms and wrists over a prolonged period. The common name for this condition came due to repeated occurrences with tennis players although it can happen to players of other sports as well as people in other profession too. Some of the people who are most susceptible to this could be from the following fields:

  1. Sporting activities such as squash, tennis, fencing, cricket and many other sports where repeated arms movements are required.
  2. Carpenters
  3. Painters
  4. Musicians playing certain instruments
  5. Typing
  6. Knitting work
  7. Chefs and waiters
  8. Cleaning
  9. Road and construction workers

Symptoms

  1. A slow exacerbation of pain over a period and gradual worsening can be a major symptom.
  2. In certain cases, the pain may manifest suddenly which will make any movement very difficult.
  3. Moving your arm may become very difficult, especially during any up or down movement of the arm.
  4. In some cases, the pain may be experienced only when shaking objects or actions wherein squeezing or hard gripping is required.
  5. Performing daily activities such as a tooth brush, trying to open jars or even trying to use a knife or fork can get extremely difficult.

How it can be treated?
Most treatment methods include keeping the elbow in a resting position and giving it time to heal automatically. However, some medication may also be given to relieve pain and quicken healing. Some of these are mentioned below.

  1. Elbow straps: These fix the elbow in a comfortable position and don’t allow it to move helping it heal on its own.
  2. Ice treatment : This is the most common home treatment prescribed to relieve pain. You can use homemade icepacks or even buy gel pack, which can then be held against the area to relieve pain.
  3. Painkillers: Ibuprofen and aspirin can be used to lessen the pain, although it is advisable to consult your doctors first.
  4. Various physical therapies: Physiotherapy, acupuncture or specific doctor recommended exercises could be done to not only relieve pain but also quicken healing and to strengthen the tendons and the muscles of that area.

5 Most Common Types Of Benign Tumours!

5 Most Common Types Of Benign Tumours!

Majority of bone tumours are benign, meaning they are localised and do not spread. Since benign tumours do not metastasize, they are not forms of cancer. Despite not being malignant, the severity of their presence should not be ignored as they may cause a lot of pain and lead to other problems such as damaged bones and fractures.

Benign Bone Tumours

  1. Osteochondromas: These form over 40 per cent of all benign bone tumours. They are mostly found in children and teenagers. Osteochondroma is a growth abnormality and they are found in the growing ends of long bones. An osteochondroma might grow separately or might be accompanied by other similar tumours.
  2. Osteoclastomas: They are also called giant cell tumours of the bone. They are common and are found in the epiphysis of long bones and around the knee.
  3. Osteoid Osteoma: These grow mostly in adolescents and very rarely in adults above 50. They primarily grow in the legs but they might also be found in other bones in the body.
  4. Enchondroma: It is a bone tumour that starts in the cartilage. It is mostly found in the cartilage of the inner lining of bones. Small long bones of the feet and the hands are affected the most. Teenagers get more affected than other age group.
  5. Osteoblastoma: These are slow growing tumours that take about two years to get diagnosed. An osteoblastoma makes the surrounding bones weaker as they dissolve them and make them more susceptible to fracture caused by small injuries. Men are twice as more likely to be affected by an osteoblastoma than women. Surgery is essential in all cases of osteoblastoma as they destroy healthy functional bone and grow in size with time.

In rare cases, these have also known to become malignant over time, despite their benign nature. It affects people under 30 mostly.

Malignant Bone Tumours

  1. OsteosarcomaIt affects the hip, knees and shoulders of mostly children and teenagers. It is also referred to as osteogenic sarcoma.
  2. Ewing Sarcoma Family of Tumours: These generate from medullary cavities and can also grow in blood vessels and adipose tissues. It primarily affects children and teenagers.
  3. ChondrosarcomaIt usually affects the hips, pelvis and shoulders of middle aged people.

Osteoarthritis - Common Factors That Put You At Risk!

Osteoarthritis - Common Factors That Put You At Risk!

Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes cartilages in the joints of a human body to wear away. The joints in your body are made of bones and the ends of each bone have cartilages to prevent friction between them. Certain factors like age, nutrition or health threats can cause the cartilages to break down into bits and pieces. As a result, bones come into direct contact with one another causing the joints to swell or to turn tender.

Take a look at the following factors that can cause osteoarthritis

  1. Stress on specific joints due to certain postures: The triggering cause behind acute joint pain could be the way you sit for long hours in a day. A sportsperson might face joint pains due to his or her occupation. Similarly, any person required to sit or stand for a long stretch of time due to his/her jobs can suffer from osteoarthritis as well.
  2. There might be a deformity in any of your joints: A person born with joint deformities might suffer from arthritic problems later in life. Severe accidents can lead to deformities too.
  3. You may have suffered injuries that resulted in the condition: Joint pains needn’t always require an impactful injury. Mild or heavy injuries can lead to arthritis all the same. Defects in the joint cartilage could be passed on through genes.
  4. Age could also be a contributing factor: If a person is aging, his or her chances of developing osteoarthritis increase manifold. Age can make your bones and cartilages go weak. As you grow older, the capacity of your bones to absorb nutrition also decreases.

Prevalent symptoms that help you identify osteoarthritis

  1. A grinding sensation in the joints: A person suffering from osteoarthritis will experience continual bouts of grinding pain in the joints. This may keep him or her from walking, sitting, working or even resting. The grinding sensation is indeed disabling.
  2. You tend to face stiffness in the bones: Patients with this kind of arthritis have been reported with lacking flexibility in their joints. If they are sitting for too long, or have been inactive for some time or might have just woken up from sleep, they are likely to experience stiffness in their bones. Joints even turn sore in such situations.
  3. Extra bits of bones could create trouble: Extra bits of bones that develop at a later age are also referred to as bone spurs. They stick around the sore area and make movement a real challenge.

Modes of treatment
If osteoarthritis is detected at an early age, it can be fought against using medications. However, when the disease is really discomforting, treatment procedures like acupuncture or regimented exercising can help a patient. Yoga also does wonders to remedy joint pain. Surgical procedures are also available but they should be fallen back upon as a lender of the last resort. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.
