Hello everyone,

I am Dr Neetan Sachdeva I am Orthopaedic surgeon.

Let's talk about Osteoporosis, Osteoporosis is a very common disease now affecting all of us, many individuals, many ladies, elderly men-females, everybody is getting affected over period of time. About one and two females and 1 and 8 men are affected in India with Osteoporosis. Now you may be having lot of big body ache, pains, if you above 35-40 you may be a male, you may be a female, lot of pain, big aches thakawat jisko bolte hain hum log, may be tired getting up don't feel like working you may be approaching a menopause, such cases we usually trying differentiate between Arthritis and Osteoporosis. If we are going ahead with this investigations with like something like dexa scan which is usually done about 40-45 years of age not before that, in elderly men also it is done and post menopause female also it is done and it comes us to be osteoporosis, then we have treatment for that. So what is basically and Osteoporosis, Osteoporosis is porous bones or soft bones. Now the bones they collapse their own self just by small trivial injuries, just by little weight or just buy some activity you may have damage your bones that happen in osteoporosis. In routine we normally have a very good bone strength around 35 after, 35 gradually the bone strength decreases. So about 40-45 is the age when you start having osteoporosis, that is the time we should be very careful. Now what causes osteoporosis? Lack of exercise, not the right food, lack of calcium, vitamin D, you may be suffering for Rheumatoid Arthritis or any kind of arthritis you may be on steroids, obesity, obviously some comb or bit factors are always there for Osteoporosis. So how would we diagnose Osteoporosis, it is mainly the gold stand test is the DEXA scan that is a bone density, common areas which scanned is the hip, the spine, maybe the wrist and other areas are also spine, but spine is the main area where the Osteoporosis is diagnosed. There are some scores which you find on your report those are known as T-scores, T-scores are the value given by WHO from which we diagnose Osteoporosis, less than 2.5 or above is Osteoporosis. The severity of the Osteoporosis is bones treatment, the treatment maybe just adding supplements, maybe some exercise, eating good food, you may have calcium, vitamin D, if you have severe osteoporosis we might give you some other medication. Yes, alcohol, smoking these all things also adds to Osteoporosis. You need to decrease on those and probably stop them if anyone is having them. Osteoporosis is recently controlled very nicely on drugs and it can be controlled by exercise, you may build up your bone mask with all these supplements, and if you're still not happy with all these you may further go ahead test with Osteoporosis and other than this test Arthritis test can also be done to differentiate between Osteoporosis and Arthritis.

So, if you have any further queries you can contact me on my clinic at Rajdhani Enclave, Pitampura or you can contact through Lybrate.

Thank you very much.

Well just a plain x ray will not tell you the cause of pain. It is done to find a bony cause. Normal X-ray does not mean that you should not have pain. Get evaluated.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Most Common Causes

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Most Common Causes

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes numbness or tingling in the hands and arms besides other symptoms. Carpal tunnel is basically a narrow passage on the palm side of the wrist. This condition is caused when a nerve in the carpel tunnel is compressed. Since this median nerve runs up through the hands to the forearm, it affects the arms as well. Not only does it cause nerve pain, but also results in limited functionality of the thumb.

To prevent this syndrome, one needs to understand its causes. We have discussed some of the primary causes below:

  1. Issues with the thyroid hormone: Hypothyroidism, an imbalance or lack of thyroid hormones in the body, can create problems that lead to issues with the overall musculoskeletal system. An over-active pituitary gland can also cause issues that affect mobility and motor skills. This can lead to or exacerbate the carpal tunnel syndrome.
  2. Arthritis: Arthritis causes swelling and inflammation of joints and tendons, which tend to increase the symptoms of carpal tunnel. Eventually, arthritis can also lead to compression of the median nerve and other structures in the wrist, thereby leading to carpal tunnel syndrome.
  3. Pregnancy or menopause: During pregnancy as well as menopause, women experience tingling or numbness in their hands, which is believed to be caused by carpal tunnel. Experts say that when a fluid called oedema builds up in the tissues around the wrists and other parts of the body, it puts a pressure on the median nerve, leading to pain.
  4. Work pressure: Experts believe that behaviours can increase the risk of carpal tunnel. The other instances which cause this syndrome include physical labour, using mechanical tools and repeated stress to the wrist. However, various studies suggest that there isn’t any direct association between using a computer and carpal tunnel syndrome. It may just cause different forms of hand pain.
  5. Imbalance of body fluids: Fluid retention in the body increases the pressure within the carpal tunnel, which irritates the median nerve. This is common during pregnancy and menopause as discussed earlier.
  6. Obesity: One of the significant risk factors for this syndrome is being obese. So be careful about gaining excess weight.
  7. Other conditions: Certain conditions like hormonal imbalance, diabetes and kidney failure may increase the chances of carpal tunnel syndrome. It also occurs in people who usually have narrow carpel tunnels. In some cases, it is inherited and is passed from one generation to the next.
  8. Inflammatory conditions: Illnesses that end up in inflammation, such as rheumatoid arthritis, can affect the lining around the tendons in the wrist and put pressure on the median nerve.
  9. Fractures: A fracture in the wrist can cause narrowing of the carpal tunnel and irritate the nerve.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Pain In Elbow - Know The Causes and How to Manage It

Pain In Elbow - Know The Causes and How to Manage It

Throwing a ball, lifting something or even eating requires the use of the elbow joint. This is one of the most overused joints in the body and hence is very susceptible to wear and tear, which mostly causes pain. Pain in the elbow could be the result of an issue with the arm muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones or bursae. The treatment for this pain depends largely on the factors causing it. Some of the most common conditions that cause elbow pain are:

Golfer’s Elbow
This condition is also known as 'Medial Epicondylitis'. It is caused by an overuse of the elbow muscles and affects the elbow’s inner tendons. Resting the elbow, cold packs and the use of over-the-counter pain killers can usually relieve this sort of pain.

Tennis Elbow
This condition is also caused by repetitive actions and affects the elbow’s outer tendons. It is also known as lateral epicondylitis. Resting the elbow can help this type of pain. In addition, patients may also need to wear an elbow strap or brace to support the joint. In some cases, physiotherapy may also be needed.

Student’s Elbow
This is also commonly known as draftsman’s elbow or olecranon bursitis. This condition affects the small fluid sacs or bursae in the elbow. These fluid sacs aid in the movement of the elbow. Leaning on the elbow for a long time, a sharp blow or an infection could be the cause of this condition. It can be treated with medication and elbow pads. In chronic and severe cases, surgery may also be needed.

Fracture or Dislocation
Falling on the elbow can lead to a bone being dislocated or a fracture in the joint. In such cases, the pain will be accompanied by swelling, discoloration and difficulty in moving the elbow. Fractures and dislocated bones need medical attention. Your doctor may advise you to wear a brace or a cast depending on the severity of the issue.

Sprains and Strains
Repeated stress or a trauma can result in a sprained or strained ligament. In such cases, the joint will feel unstable. Pain caused by these ligament conditions can be relieved by resting the elbow, applying a cold pack and wearing a brace to support the elbow. Sometimes, a doctor may also advise physiotherapy.

Panner’s Disease
This condition is caused by dislodged pieces of bone and cartilage that could be the result of an injury. Young men are the most affected by it. Resting the joint and abstaining from lifting any weights can help relieve pain caused by Panner’s disease. In some cases, physical therapy may also be recommended.

Elbow pain can be tricky to treat. Sometimes, it can just go away with rest or with the application of cold packs or rehabilitation exercises. The most important thing is to be patient and get the treatment process started. Make sure to consult with a doctor before treating any kind of elbow pain. Home remedies are best avoided when it's the elbow at stake. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Relation Between Vitamin D Deficiency And Bone Problems!

Relation Between Vitamin D Deficiency And Bone Problems!

When we speak of bone health, calcium is usually the hero of the story. However, by itself, calcium is not enough for healthy bones. Vitamin D is equally important for healthy bones and the prevention of orthopedic conditions.

What does Vitamin D do?
Vitamin D helps the body absorb calcium from the food being eaten. It also controls the calcium and phosphate levels in the body. This is critical for the growth and development of new bones. Vitamin D also controls how much calcium and phosphates are being expelled by the body. In this way, vitamin D helps strengthen the bones and improve overall bone health.

Vitamin D Deficiency
Vitamin D is not commonly found in food. It is present only in certain types of oily fishes, egg yolks and mushrooms. Most of the vitamin D we eat comes from fortified cereals, breads and dairy products. The sun is an important source of vitamin D but exposing yourself to too much sunlight could cause various skin problems. Thus, vitamin D deficiency is very common. When it comes to bone health, vitamin D deficiency can cause low-density bones. This, in turn, can cause rickets and osteoporosis. People with vitamin D deficiency are likely to suffer frequent fractures. Vitamin D deficiency can also cause skeletal deformities such as bow legs and a stooped spine.

Vitamin D and Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a musculoskeletal condition that is marked by low bone density. Studies have shown that people with osteoporosis have lower levels of vitamin D as compared to others. Some studies also suggest that fractures are more common in winter as compared to summer. The winter sun is often hazy and many days can go by without strong sunlight. Thus it can be inferred that people do not get their required quota of vitamin D from the sunlight in winters leading to a deficiency and aggravated osteoporosis-related fractures.

Who is most susceptible to bone conditions caused by vitamin D deficiency?
Vitamin D deficiency is a very common condition across the globe. Some surveys have claimed that approximately 30% of the global population suffers from vitamin D deficiency. People with dark skin, women and elderly people are most susceptible to this deficiency. People suffering from kidney diseases may also be affected by vitamin D deficiency. Vitamin D supplements are usually very helpful in combatting this deficiency. These can be taken by young children as well as adults.
