Known as “Fibromyalgia”, hip, neck and lower back pain is a common syndrome in which a patient has long-term pain spread throughout the body. The pain is most often linked to fatigue, sleep problems, headaches, depression, and anxiety. Fibromyalgia is most common among women age 20 to 50.
Patients suffering from fibromyalgia may also have tenderness in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues.
Although the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, possible triggers may include:
The following conditions may be seen with fibromyalgia:
Also known as “Osteoarthritis”
Articular cartilage is a firm rubbery protein material covering the end of a bone. It acts as a cushion or shock absorber between the bones. When it breaks down, this cushion is lost, and the bones will grind together. This causes the development pain, swelling, bone spur formation or decreased motion. Osteoarthritis commonly affects weight bearing joints such as the knee, but it may affect any joint.
Osteoarthritis is one of the five leading causes of disability among elderly men and women. The risk of disability is as great as that from a cardiovascular disease.
There are two types of injuries: acute injuries and overuse injuries. Acute injuries are usually the result of a single, traumatic event such as: wrist fractures, ankle sprains, shoulder dislocations, and hamstring muscle strain.
Overuse injuries are more subtle and usually occur over time. They are the result of repetitive trauma to the tendons, bones and joints. Common examples include: tennis elbow, swimmer's shoulder, Little League elbow, runner's knee, jumper's knee, Achilles tendinitis and shin splints. In most sports and activities, overuse injuries are the most common and the most challenging to diagnose and treat.
Surgery is generally the final step in any problem and is only undertaken when more conservative measures such as physiotherapy have failed to produce the desired or optimal result.
Orthopaedic Surgeons ensure that their clients have received a comprehensive physiotherapy assessment and course of treatment before other interventions or surgery are contemplated.
A major part of the successful outcome following surgical procedures is good physiotherapy treatment concentrating on:
It is useful to see an orthopaedic surgeon before your surgery to ensure that you understand the exercises you will be undertaking immediately post-surgery.
The natural curve of your spine absorbs shock and weight of your body as you are standing, walking, sitting or running. However, sometimes these curves can be exaggerated, resulting in conditions such as scoliosis (when the spine is curved sideways), kyphosis (commonly known as the “hunch back”) or excessive lordosis (when the spine sways).
Pain is usually associated with these postural conditions, whether mild or severe. If left untreated it will become more painful and may result in other serious conditions such as herniated disks, bulging disks or nerve impigments.
Diabetes, obesity and hypertension are all associated with the increased risk of cardiovascular and renal disease. The coexistence of this triumvirate is due to a combination of environmental, genetic, life style and behavioural confounders.
Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis are the two most common conditions that damages joints and affects their function – generally patients who suffer from arthritis struggle to prevent their limps from shaking.
Osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, damages the cartilage that caps the bones in your joints. Rheumatoid arthritis occurs when your immune system attacks the lining of your joints causing a painful swelling and later resulting in joint deformity
