INTRODUCTION Fracture is defined as discontinuation of bone meaning the two bones is separated. The range of broken bones can be from a thin crack to a complete break. A crack (not only a break) in the bones is also known as fracture. It can be fracture of crosswise, lengthwise, in several places or into many pieces. Typically, it happens when the bone was subjected to impact of more force or pressure than it can withstand.
Here are the common causes why people develop extra bone over bone. 1. What Causes Bone Spurs? • Osteoarthritis Osteoarthritis is a degenerative bone condition that affects various joints of the body, including the spine. It is a common cause of low back pain, especially in older patients, that causes stiffness and pain.
An open fracture is a broken bone that penetrates the skin. Compared to a broken bone that does not pierce the skin (a closed fracture), an open fracture increases your risk for infection. Therefore, immediate treatment is necessary. This often requires an operation to clean the affected area to prevent infection. Furthermore,
In progress of the Paget disease,maybe the affected bones will occur deformities, for example twisted, misshapen of limb, and scoliosis. Sometimes that affected bones can be fracture,usually at the longer bones in your arms and legs. There is a few symptoms of fractured bone: • Pain and swelling • Bruising and changes colour in a skin around. • The limb and body part can be bent at an unsual angle. Another symptom can be appear if Paget disease develop inside the bone of skull, such as: • Losing of hearing or deaf ( it can be partial or total
In this type of kyphosis, several of the vertebrae are more triangular in shape for unknown reasons. The curved spine usually becomes noticeable during adolescence. Osteoporotic kyphosis. This type is caused by thinning and loss of bone density (osteoporosis), which results in small breaks (compression fractures) in the thoracic vertebrae that causes them to become wedge-shaped over time. What are the causes?
There are three F’s on how fractures happen. The first one is fall the way you fall or get injured. The second f is force, the force and direction of the fall. And the final F is fragility, the fragility of the bone that takes the impact. The prevention and treatment of fractures is important to overall health, but there are various treatments available of a fracture.
The acute deformities are those exhibited within 4 weeks of the injury while chronic deformities are defined as those exhibited after 4 weeks. This injury is classified by Doyle into four groups. The first group is a closed or blunt trauma causing loss of tendon continuity with or without an avulsion fracture. The second group involves laceration at or proximal to the distal interphalangeal joint causing loss of tendon continuity. The third group would involve a deep abrasion with loss of skin, subcutaneous cover and tendon substance.
A worse thing can happen, when the force is greater it may pull away a bone along with the tendon. As a result, the tip of the finger can no longer straighten itself. Even a minor movement like folding your clothes can cause this kind of injury. This kind of fracture is identified as an avulsion. The long, ring and pinky fingers are the most likely to be
It causes pain and stiffness, especially in the hip, knee and thumb joint. Another injury which patients have is osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is when a bone softens and is easily damaged or easily misplaced in another part of your body. The main consequence of osteoporosis is bone fracture. The third most common problems that people have is excess purine.
This will cause pinching between the shoulder blade and the arm bone when you try to move your shoulders. Shoulder impingements can arise as a result of the repetitive use of the shoulders or when you fall. Like the name suggests, a rotator cuff tear arises when a tendon or a rotator cuff muscle actually tears. These tears can either be a minor one or very sever, depending on the affected tissue and the thickness and depth of the tear. Just like shoulder impingements, tears are caused by the wearing down of the muscles of rotator cuffs overtime, or by acute traumas.
