What are Orthepodic Disorder ?
Bones are the solid organs of which the human skeleton is made up. Bones are in a constant state of renewal. At an early age, the bone tissue is produced (ossified) at a higher ratio than the breakdown (resorption) of old tissue—a process called bone ossification and resorption, bone remodeling, or bone metabolism. As people age, the metabolism process is reversed; such that resorption occurs at a higher ratio than ossification (which is typical of aging).
Orthopedic conditions are injuries and diseases that affect the musculoskeletal system. This body system includes the muscles, bones, nerves, joints, ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissues. Damage to any of these tissues or structures can come from chronic orthopedic diseases or from an injury.
Causes Of Orthepodic Disorder
Common Cause of Orthepodic Disorder:
- Long-term use of some medications (such as taking corticosteroids or cortisone orally), and other medications such as heparin (an anticoagulant), as well as epilepsy medications (such as phenytoin);
- Some endocrine disorders such as hyperactivity of the thyroid and parathyroid glands, Cushing's syndrome, and deficiency of estrogen;
- The density of women’s bones decreases dramatically in the few years post-menopause, particularly if the menopause begins early (before the age of 45).
Symptoms of Orthepodic Disorder
The symptoms of orthopedic issues will vary depending on the specific condition and body part.
- Deformities or unusual appearance of a joint
- Fatigue combined with joint pain or swelling
- Joint stiffness and limited range of motion
- Muscle spasms
- Numbness, tingling, or weakness
- Pain, which may be mild, moderate or severe and sharp, dull, achy, crampy, stabbing, or burning
- Swelling of the injured or diseased area
Warmth and redness in case of infection or inflammation
Such symptoms as pain, muscle spasms, numbness, swelling, and stiffness may come and go depending on the specific condition and your activity level. Pain and other symptoms from orthopedic conditions can limit activity if it worsens with movement.
Treatment for Orthopedic Disorder
Stem cell therapy for orthopedic conditions involves injecting your own processed bone marrow into an injured bone or joint. Bone marrow contains a certain type of stem cell that may help reduce inflammation, promote healing, and create healthy new tissue. A stem cell is a type of “simple” cell.
In the past, an orthopedic injury or condition would have required an invasive surgical procedure that required a long term recovery. But now stem cell therapy, which is a cutting edge procedure, is being used in sports and orthopedics medicine. In this procedure, the patient’s own stem cells are used.
When using the patient’s own stem cells it has the benefit and unique property of being able to develop into various cell types and successfully treat many orthopedic conditions and sports injuries. It also provides pain relief and improved function within a short period of time.
In orthopedics, stem cell therapy helps in healing the body in a natural way without any invasive surgery. Although the treatment applications in stem cell therapies are still in the development stage, the studies and research in recent years have given some proven positive results.
