Orthopedic Problems In Adults And Aged Individuals

Any medical complication related to muscles, joints and ligaments fall under the medical category of orthopedic. The common orthopedic problems include knee pain, arthritis, whiplash, shoulder or bone dislocation, torn cartilages, fibromyalgia, etc. Each of these disorders has their own causes and treatments. One solution does not fit all and often the treatment also differs based on the age of the patient. In this article, we discuss in detail the common orthopedic problems that people ace irrespective of their age and social strata.

–    Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a bone degenerative disease that is common in middle aged and senior adults. It is caused due to the wear and tear of the cartilage due to ageing or also due to accidents that shatters the cartilage. It is one of the most bone problems that an orthopedic surgeon will have to deal with in his career.

–    Fractures and bone dislocations
Bone fractures and dislocations can happen to anyone without any distinction of age. Fractures need the patient to isolate the broken bone or limb without any movement until the bone is fixed in its original position and ligaments gel it together. Multiple fractures will require the patient to remain bed ridden until the limbs are ready for movement. Fractures inevitably can be cured only with the help of an knee pain relief and not even by primary care doctors.

–    Arthritis
Arthritis is a common rheumatic disease that has acute pain, inflammation, difficulty in movement, swelling, etc. as the symptoms. It is largely seen in aged people and is caused as a result of ageing process. The treatment for arthritis involves use of ointments, physiotherapy and medication. Sadly, the recovery process is proven to be painfully slow.

–    Low back pain
Low back pain is largely caused due to wrong sitting posture or slouching. Excess weight and lack of physical exercise can also lead to low back pain. It is estimated that at least four out of ten people suffer from low back pain at some point in time of their lives.

–    Rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is a severe inflammation in the joints that creates extreme difficulty in mobility and limb movements. The disorder also causes lumps in the joints hampering physical movement to a large extent. The situation worsens with time as the body’s immunity system starts attacking the healthy cells and thus breaking down the physical health of the individual completely. If left unchecked, Rheumatoid arthritis can even affect the respiratory system.
With age, it is common for the human skeletal system to break down. It is important to follow a healthy diet rich with proteins, calcium and vitamins to strengthen the bone structure and to maintain a good lifestyle.
