Wise philosophers will advise you to take efficient care of your body, as that’s the only place you have to live within.
When addressing human anatomy and physiology, your joint is typically a structure that will work to separate two or more adjacent elemental structures in your skeletal being. Based on the type of joint, these may or may not proceed to move over and rub onto each other. It’s essential to take efficient care of the associated bones, ligaments, tissues, nerve, and bloody supply across and around these joints for maximum functionality.
When you possess healthy joints, they allow for your wrists, elbows, fingers, ankles, shoulders, and many more parts to move effectively and with ease. Apart from these, your bones are also responsible for protecting your brain and other vital organs, supplying integrity and uniformity to your skeletal structure, providing storage for minerals like calcium, and also releasing hormones for controlling blood glucose levels.
Oftentimes, bones tend to get damaged due to subsequent bone and joint disorders or diseases that leave your vital body functions seriously diminished in one or more areas or regions and this seriously deteriorates your quality of life. Being aware of the right kinds of bone and joint disorders, their diagnostic parameters, and associated details will help you step closer to getting the proper treatment strategy and reach you further to complete therapy or cure. We’ve curated a list of the most commonly affecting bone and joint problems found on a global basis in the human population for you to have a look at!
Globally a very prevalent bone and joint condition, this refers to the deliberate bone loss occurring due to weakened bones that could proceed to have breakage or brittleness. Approximately 55 million people on a worldwide basis are affected by this disorder in later stages of their life. The statistical data present evidence of the increasing occurrence of Osteoporosis in females as compared to males. At times, in some unfortunate cases, children could also be susceptible to getting juvenile osteoporosis. This invisible disease proceeds to cause damage without the patient being even slightly aware of the same. When diagnosed, a lot of bone density problems come to the surface as the body has begun losing too much bone tissue but appears asymptomatic. Cases have shown how patients have progressed with their lives normally, living with Osteoporosis and the matter comes to hand only when they visit the Physician for a slight sprain or a fracture.
This dilapidating bone disease could cause immense pain along with diminished or reduced bone and joint function, thereby affecting your physical activity routine. A lack of blood supply to the bone tissue and associated joints will cause that area of bone to die, thereby leading to this condition. Typically, the majority of the population reports a significant hip or ligament fracture, wherein blood supply to the bone is compromised due to prevalent bone trauma. Along with the bone collapsing, even surrounding joints could undergo the same fate. The three major types could include ischemic, avascular, and aseptic necrosis, and the typical areas wherein this disease is caused include thigh bones, knees, shoulder, upper arms, and the ankles.
This is a type of chronic degenerative joint disease and also the most commonly occurring joint disorder amongst the general population. Traditionally, it was classified as the ‘wear and tear’ disorder nominative of old age wherein the cartilage that was typically cushioning the joint undergoes gradual breakdown and becomes stiff causing excessive pain in those regions. Approximately 5-6 million adults are diagnosed with this condition on a worldwide basis, whereby hip and knee arthritis are the majorly occurring ones. As the amount and severity of pain increases, your joints and bones become less flexible, eventually causing movement incapacities.
This autoimmune joint disorder is chronic and is majorly classified by joint and surrounding regions’ inflammation. Typically, this condition is prevalent at any age but most vibrantly it is found amongst middle-aged individuals. In this disorder, your immune system mistakes your body parts as dangerous and proceeds to attack your bone tissues and joint regions usually present in the hands and feet. Quite contradictory to the wear and tear type of breakdown occurring in Osteoarthritis, this condition involves damage to the lining of joints whereby a gradual painful swelling and inflammation is caused that eventually leads to joint deformity and bone erosion.
The name is narrative of the type of final appearance during this condition whereby the bones present in the spinal curvature tend to take on an abnormal outlook and appear curved or side-to-side either during or before puberty. In America alone, the usual population suffering from this disorder goes up to 4 million on an annual basis. Physicians will notice an S- or C-shaped spinal curvature and this makes the patient appear perpetually bent over. Normal physical activity is highly affected and movement is very restricted. Corrective surgery is quite expensive which is why most people tend to avoid treatment measures and suffer for life. If not corrected well in advance (during childhood), it could persist right until adulthood and hamper a normal lifestyle.
In this commonly occurring joint disorder, there is excessive accumulation of uric acid crystals within the joints and this leads to abnormal levels of pain, swelling, inflammation, burning sensation, and redness in affected the area. Most often, this type of condition is found to affect the region of a joint that connects the big toe to the rest of your foot. A type of attack to patients suffering from this disorder is called Gout Flare-Up and it randomly strikes in the middle of the night causing immense discomfort and stress. As per statistical representations, men are found to suffer from Gout more commonly in their middle ages, and women are found to get Gout in the later stages of their life.
Your bursa is typically a fluid-filled sac that exists between your joints, tendons, and muscles functioning as a cushioning point between the three. When this sac starts getting swollen up and causes immense inflammation and painful irritation, it is termed as a disease called Bursitis. Multiple such sacs could be affected at a singular time, and we call them Bursae. In this case, too, patients experience Flare-Ups caused by excess usage of joints and/or sudden occurrence of injuries. At times, in rare cases, bacterial infections could also lead to or aggravate this condition. Commonly associated symptoms in this type of disorder include stiffness, aching when movement occurs, swelling, warmth, joint redness, pain, and associated tenderness in the swollen joints.
Another commonly prevalent autoimmune disorder called Lupus affects a variety of parts throughout your body, however, joint pain is one of the recurrent conditions associated with it. Typically affected body parts include skin, blood, brains, bones, internal organs, etc. Joint pain moves from one place to another and occurs most commonly amongst the areas of hands and feet joints, with swelling, stiffness, and inflammation reported by many. This inflammation is medically known to trigger arthritis in these areas too, making Lupus a serious cause for concern for your joint health. In most cases, it is known to be devoid of permanent damage or serious joint problems but it’s best to get it diagnosed at the earliest and begin treatment.
