So on a scale from one to twenty, how many football players get injuries to be more specific, knee injuries. Well with all the people that get hurt is higher than expected and sometimes it can mess with their job if they don’t heal fast.
Stenosing tenosynovitis, or most commonly referred to as trigger finger, is a condition where one of the fingers is stuck in a bent position. The affected finger may straighten in a snap similar to a trigger being pulled and then released. This situation usually occurs when there is inflammation in
The result of this pain in the joints and in the muscles is often inflammation. The symptoms of this condition closely resemble those of viral flu and sometimes those of arthritis. The pain in the muscles and joint becomes so acute that one is unable to do any meaningful physical activity.
The patient is 67-year-old gentleman who was discharged from a nursing home 2 days ago after 3 months stay. The patient had a right ruptured quadriceps tendon which was repaired in a Morris Town hospital and he was in the Atrium of Wayne for rehabilitation and discharged home.
Osteoarthritis is degenerative joint disease caused by mechanical wear and tear. Damage manifest as breakdown of cartilage, injury of subhondral bone and changes to all articular surfaces. it presents as pain in weight bearing joints that worsen with use. The joints that are mostly affected are the distal interphalanges, knees, hips, toes and spine . Knee osteoarthritis is suspected after a medical history and physical examination is done. During the physical examination the doctor will examine the knee and its series of motion. He will pay close attention to areas that are swollen, tender and painful . There are a variety of diagnostic tests that may help confirm the diagnosis if patient’s knee is affected. There is X-ray that
Tendinitis is the inflammation or irritation of tendons. A tendon is a thick fibrous cord that attaches muscle to bones. It causes tenderness and pain around a joint. It can occur anywhere in the body's tendons, although it mainly occurs around the shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and heels. Tendinitis has
Osteoarthritis is the breakdown of joints. Osteoarthritis is commonly caused by being overweight, the joints in the body aging and injuries. Some common treatments are exercise , diet, and medication. In more severe cases joint replacement could be an option for treatment.The two most common symptoms of this are stiffness of the joints or swelling. To diagnose Osteoarthritis the doctor must know medical history and the patient must go through a physical examination. Sometimes this means to go through X-rays to lab test.
James Phillips, a 16 year old, Caucasian male presented to the emergency department with joint pain, loss of appetite, and fatigue. Accompanied by his mother, she said his fever was on and off for the last 1 months and had episode of high grade fever for 3 days in a week. She further explained he has experienced several nose bleeds in the last 3 weeks. Vital signs were taken and Temperature was 100.4˚F, his pulse rate was107 bpm, and blood pressure was 136/68 mmHg. Patient is 5'10" weighing 150 pounds. Mother said patient has lost 10 pounds in 1 month but his routine has not changed. During assessment, pallor was noted, palpable nodules noted in bilateral axillary region, and multiple bruises noted on left and right lower extremities. Patient
Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that occurs flexible tissue at the end of bones wears down. However us cannot be cured , there are some treatments that may help. This may last for years or even your lifetime. The wearing down of the protective tissue at the end of bones occurs gradually and worsens over time. There is joint pains in the neck , hand , lower part of the back , knee or hips ( most commonly ). Medications , physical therapy and sometimes surgery can help reduce the pain and maintain joint movement. For the diagnoses they may be expected after medical history and medical examination. Or even in joint aspiration. Doctors numbs the area , inserts the needle into the joint to withdraw the fluid. When inserting the needle were
A review of her medical record indicates a history of polyarthritis with associated pain to hips, knees and back that is affecting her functional ability and causing decreased mobility. She also suffers from co-morbidities of anemia-chronic, COPD-chronic, oxygen dependent, HTN-stable, sleep apnea-chronic, NIDDM-stable, and unsteady gait. At today's visit, she
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune illness that will affect the body’s immune system which actually roles as to strike unfamiliar substance such as viruses and bacteria to secure our health, mistakenly strike the joints. This produce inflammation that causes the tissue that lines the inside of joints (the synovium) becomes thick which will cause swelling and pain in and over the joints.
It’s an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the lining of the joints. An autoimmune disease occurs when the individuals own immune system fails to recognize healthy tissue. The immune system, designed to protect our health by attacking foreign cells such as viruses, instead attacks the body’s healthy tissue. As a result, fluid builds up in the joints causing inflammation and joint pain. According to WebMD, Rheumatoid Arthritis is a type of arthritis that occurs in joints on both sides of the body. This symmetry helps distinguish Rheumatoid Arthritis from other types of arthritis. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says “the inflamed synovium leads to erosions of the cartilage and bone.” This inflammatory process primarily affects the lining of the joints, known as the synovial membrane, but can also affect other organs. As stated by James Warson, “the causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis are not known, but several theories are under investigation” (63). Some theories suggest that a virus may alter the immune system, causing it to attack the joints. Other theories suggest that exposure to smoking may lead to Rheumatoid Arthritis. It’s believed to be due to a combination of genetic, environmental, and hormonal
RA is associated with inflammation of the synovium, autoantibody production, progressive cartilage and bone destruction, early morbidity, and other systemic consequences in which many include cardiovascular events. Although structural changes can be visualized by conventional imaging techniques, joint damage is rarely apparent in early stages of disease, but rather accumulates over time (4). Various immune modulators and signalling pathways are involved in the pathophysiology of RA. The influx of mononuclear cells, including T and B cells results in synovitis, which is inflammation of the synovial joint. The synovial lining becomes hyperplastic and the membrane expands and destroys bone, due to osteoclast-rich regions. Cartilage is also degraded by enzymes secreted from synoviocytes and chondrocytes (4).

Topic Ten: Gene Therapy Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis with CXCL-10/IL-10 Gene Therapy1 Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a common autoimmune disease. The chronic inflammation they induced lead to severe joint swelling and damage2. It is more likely to strike on aged people and females3. In Australia, 400,000 people are suffering from it with different extent3-4. The mechanisms of the disease are well-studied. The synovium is the primary target of immune system for RA patients. With white blood cell migrated in, the synovium membrane become thick and inflamed, which leads to undesired tissue growth3. Various chemical substances are released from the inflamed site and starts affecting surrounding tissues, such as cartilages and ligaments. In severe cases, they might even result in whole-body disorder2-4.
