KNOW ABOUT YOUR MUSCULOSKELETAL SYSTEM:

Q: What are the symptoms of Rheumatic or arthritis disease?
The symptoms of rheumatic disease or arthritis can vary. If you have a sports-related injury, get prompt medical attention to determine the severity. Symptoms of distress include:
1. Swelling, warmth, or redness in the joint.
2. Recurring or constant joint pain or tenderness
3. Joint stiffness or difficulty in using or moving the joint after a period of movement or activity
4. A crunching feeling or the sound of bone rubbing on bone
Q: What are some easy ways to avoid knee pain?
The number-one secret for happy knees? Stay at a healthy weight. Every extra pound you pack on puts about 4 extra pounds of pressure on your knees when you walk or take the stairs. If you have osteoarthritis or have ever had a knee injury, choose sidewalks or worn paths instead of grass or cobblestone, which put more strain on your knees and up your risk of tripping.
Q: How can I keep my bones healthy and avoid orthopedic problems?
Bone minerals are composed heavily of calcium. During periods of bone growth, between 10 and 20 years of age, calcium should be a critical dietary component or supplement, with at least 1300 mg. per day recommended. In addition, older individuals begin to lose bone minerals past the age of 35. Calcium supplements and exercise can help minimize this loss.
Q: What are the symptoms of bone cancer, and how is it treated?
Tumors of the bone are caused by abnormal cell growth and can be cancerous or benign. Sometimes cancers originate in other parts of the body and metastasize (or spread) to the bone. Symptoms of bone cancer include bone pain, chronic pain in joints or limbs, and brittle bones that fracture with little or no stress. In some cases, a lump may be noticeable.
Treatments for bone cancer include chemotherapy and radiation. In addition, surgery is sometimes required and involves removal of the tumor and surrounding tissue. If bone is removed, it is replaced with a donor bone or prosthesis.
Orthopedic disorders cover the gamut from tendons, bones to ligaments and back again. Keep your skeletal system functioning and in good healthy by eating right and exercising. Drink plenty of milk or fruits fortified with vitamin D. Take care of your orthopedic requirements to ensure that you are able to run around and throw a baseball to kids in the park.
