Arthrosis

 

A bit of story...

Arthrosis of the spine is as old as time.

The skeletons of dinosaurs 200 million years ago of human beign from Java 500,000 years ago, and Neanderthal man 40,000 years before Christ, showed characteristic lesions of arthrosis.

It is present after 40 years and affects 5% of people. Arthrosis is a degenerative process of articular cartilage caused mainly by a daily wearing that thins and breaks down the cartilage and affects the movement of the joint.

Arthrosis occurs when the cartilage that serves to cushion blows between a bone and the other is altered, the two ends of the bones are close, they change shape and begin to rub against each other causing severe pain and reducing the mobility. The pain may be a result of physical effort, a strong muscle stiffness that restricts movement and leads the individual to immobilize the joint in the position less painful.

It may be made along the edges of the altered joints, small bumps or spurs, called osteophytes, which can cause irradiated pain and restrict movement. Arthrosis is more strongly in the joints that hold the weight of the body: the spine, hips, knees.

The women are more frequently affected:

- Hip
- Hands and feet;

man:

- The lumbar region
- Shoulder
- Elbows and wrists

A worn joint by age can become painful when different conditions such as trauma, obesity, metabolic imbalances and poor eating habits coexist together.
