Joint Replacement Surgery: Health Information Basics for You and Your Family

What Can Happen to My Joints?
Joints can be damaged by arthritis and other diseases, injuries, or other causes. Arthritis or simply years of use may cause the joint to wear away. This can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. Bones are alive, and they need blood to be healthy, grow, and repair themselves. Diseases and damage inside a joint can limit blood flow, causing problems.

What Is a New Joint Like?
A new joint, called a prosthesis (praas-THEE-sis), can be made of plastic, metal, or both. It may be cemented into place or not cemented, so that your bone will grow into it. Both methods may be combined to keep the new joint in place.
A cemented joint is used more often in older people who do not move around as much and in people with “weak” bones. The cement holds the new joint to the bone. An uncemented joint is often recommended for younger, more active people and those with good bone quality. It may take longer to heal, because it takes longer for bone to grow and attach to it.
New joints generally last at least 10 to 15 years. Therefore, younger patients may need to have the same damaged joint replaced more than once.

Most of the people feel a pain still after successful replacement

You can avoid joint replacement surgery, if you can really recover the damaged joint, Joint damage may cause due to above said condition. Glucosamine is marketed to support the structure and function of joints. But Glucosamine should be taken with combination based on the health condition of the person. Please consult a doctor before you proceed with this. Or you can reach us. Lets go with food supplement of glucosamine, we help you with natural from nature.

He is suffering from beckers muscular dystrophy. Is there any place for proper treatment in india.
Myopathy is usually a progressive disorder but sometimes it is self arrested. Do physiotherapy to prevent contractures & deformities. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Following may help inj dinabol 25 mg im weekly x 6wks. You will need other supportive medicines also. This disease does not affect the intelligence of the patient use your intelligence. You can work on computer etc. Keep your moral up.

Hi lybrate-user, since there is no fracture no need to worry, you must have kept your arm in rest because of the impact, you have to do exercises to breakdown the tightness (adhesion). If you do proper exercises and stretching your arm will be active.

Go for physiotherapist as you might had pivd, with coughing you will experience pain as it produces jerky movement to lower back. - do water fermentation for atleast 20 - 30 min specially at night to relax yourmuscles.- go for vit d, uric acid, b12 test - precautions- 1 avoid forwardbending of spine 2 no lifting heavy weight throught out life 3 use of firm matress 4 no jerky movement to spine 5 increase back muscle strength by doing back isometrics- put towel roll under back and press it for 30 sec abd tgan releive it do this for 10 timesfor 2- 3 timesdaily. Do this exercises after pain lower by apllying hot water for 3 days. Than there are more execcises as your pain lowers down and increase muscle strength.

The shoulder is the most movable joint in the human body. Swelling, damage, or bone changes around the rotator cuff can cause shoulder pain. *here are some tips for helping shoulder pain get better: 1> put ice on the shoulder area for 15 minutes, then leave it off for 15 minutes. Do this 3 to 4 times a day for 2 to 3 days. Wrap the ice in cloth. Do not put ice directly on the skin because this can result in frostbite. 2> rest your shoulder for the next few days. Do not perform any movement which causes pain in the shoulder. 3> slowly return to your regular activities. 4> learn exercises to stretch and strengthen your rotator cuff tendons and shoulder muscles from physiotherapist.

Hi, the source of problem coulbd be discogenic, xray is not the ideal investigation to diagnose any pathology in vertebral column except vertebral compression fracture. My advise would be to get mri of lumbar spine done to assess how much disc height reduction (which might not cause problem itself, unless it causes herniation posteriorly) or if any disc herniation is there. Visit some interventional pain specialist or orthopedician in your city for proper diagnosis of condition and further management either conservatively with physio (for lumbar paraspinal muscels strengthning or releasing if any spasm is there) or by some minimally invasive interventions such as nerve block or disc decompression depending on grade of herniation. Hope it helps your query.
