• treatments
  • Because bone plays a role in initiating osteoarthritis, therapeutic approaches focusing on bone tissue are included in the discussion of novel treatments. (springer.com)
  • The growing number of the patients suffering from osteoarthritis and the effectiveness of the current treatments attract a great deal of attention to genetic-based therapeutic methods to cure and prevent the progression of this chronic disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • stiffness
  • Although some people with mild osteoarthritis do not suffer from symptoms, this condition can cause serious pain and stiffness for others. (uspharmacist.com)
  • The distances between the bones in the ankle are normally as follows: Talus - medial malleolus : 1.70 ± 0.13 mm Talus - tibial plafond: 2.04 ± 0.29 mm Talus - lateral malleolus: 2.13 ± 0.20 mm WOMAC, a non-radiographic classification system of osteoarthritis, taking into account pain, stiffness and functional limitation. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • Bone and Osteoarthritis places emphasis on the molecular and cellular events that lead to osteoarthritis, stressing the role of subchondral bone, which distinguishes this from other books on the disease. (springer.com)
  • The general topic of osteoarthritis is therefore a timely subject for a series on bone biology. (springer.com)
  • The Ahlbäck system has been found to have comparable interobserver precision and arthroscopy correlation to the IKDC system, but most of the span of the Ahlbäck system focused at various degrees of bone defect or loss, and it is therefore less useful in early osteoarthritis. (wikipedia.org)

  • Here are osteoarthritis exercises that keep you in shape without worsening your pain. (arthritis.org)
  • Are you dealing with chronic pain from fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis, pain that never goes away completely? (arthritis.org)

  • In an accompanying editorial, Marc C. Hochberg, M.D., M.P.H., from the University of Maryland, suggests these findings offer hope to patients for whom no other treatment relieves the pain of osteoarthritis -- especially if researchers can identify the active ingredient in leech therapy that leads to the effectiveness of the treatment.

  • In osteoarthritis, the choice of treatment is based on pain and decreased function, but radiography can be useful before surgery in order to prepare for the procedure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Does the hip powder of Rosa canina (rosehip) reduce pain in osteoarthritis patients? (wikipedia.org)
  • Causes
  • Other post-traumatic causes such as intra-articular fractures of the distal radius or ulna can also lead to wrist osteoarthritis, but are less common. (wikipedia.org)
  • Diagnosis
  • From lateral to medial and when viewed from anterior, the proximal row is formed by the: Scaphoid Lunate Triquetral Pisiform From lateral to medial and when viewed from anterior, the distal row is formed by the: Trapezium Trapezoid Capitate Hamate Osteoarthritis of the wrist is predominantly a clinical diagnosis, and thus is primarily based on the patients medical history, physical examination and wrist X-rays. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • While aging does not cause osteoarthritis, it is definitely a factor in developing the disease. (bhg.com)
  • Anyone can get osteoarthritis, but the disease is uncommon in people under the age of 40. (bhg.com)
  • Gene transfer strategies for medical management of the Osteoarthritis have attracted the attention of scientists due to the complex pathology of this chronic disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • instability
  • Scapholunate advanced collapse (SLAC) is a predictable pattern of wrist osteoarthritis that results from untreated long-standing scapholunate instability, which in turn is secondary to a rupture of the scapholunate ligament. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Stage I Stage II Stage III Stage IV In order to understand the cause of post-traumatic wrist osteoarthritis it is important to know and understand the anatomy of the wrist. (wikipedia.org)
