GETTING ACQUAINTED WITH ARTHRITIS
Aches and pains are called different things by different people, but when doctors say arthritis, they are referring to painful inflammation in a joint. In some form of arthritis the inflammation brings with it swelling, pain and redness. The damage occurring in bones and tissues of the joints makes them stiff and often makes movement difficult.Arthritis may be a chronic disease, as opposed to an acute disease, which is serious for a while, is treatable, and goes away with treatment. Some forms of arthritis do not go away but can be controlled with treatment. Treatment can help you lead a normal life and continue your daily activities in a productive way. The treatment for arthritis must continue. In many cases remission occurs. That means the symptoms disappear for a while but may reappear after sometimes. Treatment must be continued to prevent recurrence or to lengthen the amount of time before symptoms flare up again.
MOST COMMON FORMS.
The most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. In the US over 16 million people have osteoarthritis, 6 million have rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is sometimes known as the wear-and-tear disease or old age arthritis. It is solely a disease of the joints that occurs with increasingly frequency with age, though it does affect people as early as age 35. It begins gradually and may remain mild for sometime. There is usually little inflammation with this type of arthritis, and it does not cause general illness or affect parts of the body other than the joints. Disability often develops gradually.Rheumatoid arthritis is inflammatory and attacks more than the joints. It may cause disease in the lungs, skin, blood vessels, eyes,spleen, and heart. This is a type of arthritis that can cripple and even kill.It is a chronic disease, but in some cases acute spells occur when inflammation flares up unpredictably. About three times more women have this type than men.In children it may destroy joints and can affect the growth pattern.Three other types of arthritis are much less common. Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic inflammatory conditionmost common in men,which affects the spine and usually begins in the teens or early twenties.Systemic lupus erythematosus (known a SLE or lupus) is an acute systemic disease related to rheumatoid arthritis. It causes inflammation and damage to joint and organs throughout the body. Sometimes the kidneys, heart, lungs,brain, and blood vessels are affected by inflammation. A common feature of the disease is a skin rash on the face. Ten times more women have SLE than men.Gout, or gouty arthritis, attacks and inflames any of the joints, one at a time. The most common site is the big toe. More men have it than women.
A spinal cord injury is a damage to the spinal cord. It’s an extremely serious type of physical trauma that’s likely to have a lasting and significant impact on most aspects of daily life.
The spinal cord is responsible for sending messages from the brain to all parts of the body. It also sends messages from the body to the brain. We are able to perceive pain and move our limbs because of messages sent through the spinal cord.
If the spinal cord sustains an injury, some or all of these impulses may not be able to ‘get through’. The result is a complete or total loss of sensation and mobility below the injury. A spinal cord injury closer to the neck will typically cause paralysis throughout a larger part of the body than one in the lower back area.
A spinal cord injury is often the result of an unpredictable accident or violent event. The following can all result in damage to the spinal cord:
- a violent attack such as a stabbing or a gunshot
- diving into water that’s too shallow and hitting the bottom
- trauma during a car accident (specifically, trauma to the face, head and neck region, back, or chest area)
- falling from a significant height
- electrical accidents
- severe twisting of the middle portion of the torso
Some symptoms of a spinal cord injury include:
- Problem in walking
- Loss of control of the bladder or bowels
- Inability to move the arms or legs
- Feelings of spreading numbness or tingling in the extremities
- Pain, pressure, stiffness in the back or neck area
- Signs of shock
- Unnatural positioning of the head
If you suspect that someone has a back or neck injury:
- Don’t move the injured person – permanent paralysis and other serious complications may result
- Keep the person still
- Place heavy towels on both sides of the neck or hold the head and neck to prevent them from moving until emergency care arrives
- Provide basic first aid, such as stopping any bleeding and making the person comfortable, without moving the head or neck
Because spinal cord injuries are often due to unpredictable events, the best you can do is reduce your risk.
Some risk-reducing measures include:
- always wearing a seatbelt while in a car
- wearing proper protective gear while playing sports
- never diving into water unless you’ve examined it first to make sure it’s deep enough and free of rocks. Consult an Expert & get answers to your questions!
