Preventive orthopedics includes Physiotherapy as a treatment modality to prevent surgical intervention.
When it comes to prevention in Orthopaedics, most of the patients over a period of time develop Osteoarthritis which is a common condition in old age patients. Osteoarthritis is a type of joint disease which results from the breakdown of joint cartilage and underlying bone. Osteoporosis, which is caused by loss of calcium in the bones, is the most common cause of osteoarthritis. As a result, bones become brittle and can cause pain in the joints or even cause fractures of the bones.
Dr. Sachin Abane believes that through regular exercise, a balanced diet, and a healthy weight, the patient can reduce the risk of developing osteoarthritis especially in the hip and the knees. Excess weight is one of the biggest risk factors for osteoarthritis. Extra weight puts additional pressure on weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and knees. Each pound of body weight adds nearly four pounds of stress to the knees and increases pressure on your hips six-fold. Over time, the extra strain breaks down the cartilage that cushions these joints. Fat tissue produces proteins called cytokines that promote inflammation throughout the body. In the joints, cytokines destroy tissue by altering the function of cartilage cells.
The latest research suggests that diabetes, which affects the body's ability to regulate blood sugar (glucose), is a significant risk factor for osteoarthritis. That's because high glucose levels speed the formation of certain molecules that make cartilage stiffer and more sensitive to mechanical stress. Diabetes can also trigger systemic inflammation that leads to cartilage loss.
Exercise helps bone density, improves muscle strength and joint flexibility, and enhances balance. As little as 30 minutes of moderately intense exercise, five times a week helps joints stay limber and strengthens the muscles that support and stabilize your hips and knees. Exercise also strengthens the heart and lungs, lowers diabetes risk and is a key factor in weight control.
One can keep the bone healthy through a diet which should be rich in calcium and Vitamin D. Ample of calcium can be from any of the following:
- Low-fat or fat-free dairy products
- Certain vegetables
- Soy products
Several medications such as Calcium supplements also help reduce bone loss.Ask a Question
