What is Orthopaedics?Orthopedics, as a medical specialization, revolves around the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases impacting the musculoskeletal system. This intricate system comprises joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and nerves, collectively enabling movement, functionality, and an active lifestyle.
What is the first step?
Orthopedic disorders, including knee, back, neck pain, and osteoarthritis, are prevalent concerns. The initial step involves recognizing the symptoms and understanding the causes associated with these conditions. While initial symptoms often manifest as pain in specific areas, it's crucial to be attentive to various other indicators.
Knee pain may arise from injury, underlying medical conditions, or mechanical problems. Symptoms range from unbearable pain, an inability to flex the knees, a numb feeling, limping, difficulty standing, to swelling, redness, and fever accompanied by pain.
Back pain symptoms encompass persistent aching or stiffness along the entire spine, from the base of the neck to the tailbone. Common causes include spine-related disorders, accidents, injuries, lifestyle habits, and underlying medical conditions.
Neck pain can result from muscle sprain or strain, underlying diseases, injuries, accidents, or aging. Common symptoms include neck muscle spasm, tension, tenderness, and stiffness.
Osteoarthritis manifests as joint tenderness, reduced flexibility, bone spurs, joint stiffness, a grating sensation, and swelling. Although the exact causes are unclear, research suggests a combination of factors such as heredity, weak muscles, autoimmune diseases, aging, joint injury, stress, bacterial or viral infections, and being overweight may contribute to its development.
