Acten and the effect of age on joint health

There is a common belief that our weight-bearing joints will inevitably degenerate as we age and as one of the main causes of this degeneration is wear and tear, there is a lot of sound evidence to support this. However, just because we have been running around for a lot of years and have experienced a gradual deterioration of the joint surfaces, this does not necessarily result in pain and dysfunction. I have recently been treating a gentleman who is [...]

Injury and trauma -> Wear and tear -> Possible Initial surgical intervention -> Osteoarthritic changes -> Joint replacement???

Osteoarthritis Spondylosis

Osteoarthritis Spondylosis

When osteoarthritis affects the neck and back it is called spondylosis. Changes occur in the bones of the spine and the cushioning discs that separate each of the spinal bones. These changes are similar to those caused by osteoarthritis in other joints and can lead to back pain and difficulty with everyday activities. If the osteoarthritis causes the nerves exiting the spinal canal to become pinched, a feeling of numbness or weakness in the legs may occur. In more [...]

Take care of those knees

Take care of those knees!

Our knees should last a lifetime of walking, running, jumping, landing, going uphill and down dale. We just take them for granted…until something goes awry. The most common cause of knee pain is trauma. Ligaments, holding the joints in place and preventing unwanted movement can be sprained, muscles and their tendon attachments around the knee can be strained, meniscal cartilages which act as shock absorbers and help the joint to fit together more precisely can be torn and, with [...]

Myth 2: Cracking Your Knuckles Causes Arthritis.

False. Good news for knuckle-crackers — the pop you hear when you crack a knuckle doesn’t mean you’re putting wear and tear on those joints, Carter says. When you bend your finger to crack your knuckle, you put pressure on the fluid between your bones, and that releases a gas. “That’s what you hear: pop,” he says. Doing it won’t lead to arthritis, so you’re safe to crack away. #acten

Myth 1: Arthritis Only Happens to the Elderly.

False. It’s true that as you age, the prevalence of both inflammatory arthritis (when your joints become swollen and warm as a result of inflammation) and osteoarthritis (when the cartilage and bone wear away as a result of an injury or over time) goes up. But that doesn’t mean arthritis only affects older folks. In fact, nearly 60 percent of people diagnosed with arthritis are under age 65. Inflammatory arthritis, which occurs because of a genetic predisposition (it runs in [...]

Osteoarthritis Joint Damage

Osteoarthritis – Joint Damage

Osteoarthritis is a painful condition that affects the joints, especially the hips, knees, neck, lower back, or hands and feet. When osteoarthritis develops in a joint the cartilage (the soft tissue that protects the surfaces of the bone) begins to thin and roughen. This loss of a protective cushion between the ends of the bones can cause them to rub together and result in joint damage. The joints can become painful and swollen as the body tries to repair the [...]
