Rheumatism is a term used for diseases that affect the joint and connective tissue. In general, rheumatic disorder refers to musculoskeletal diseases. Such disorders can be cured by various medicines and therapies. The study and the intervention with medication and therapy is called Rheumatology. Rheumatic disorders are non-traumatic disorders. The common thread to most of these diseases is their painful nature. Let us discuss the classification of these diseases by dividing them into bone disease, joint diseases and diseases of the connective tissue.
[...] formed, continuous proliferation may result in these tumors becoming cancerous. Then they may spread to other parts of the body through metastases and cause death. There is a recovery rate of 50% for these rumors when the right treatment is provided. Cancer education Though the cancerous tumor may originate at a different place, it may move through the body during metastases and cause skeletal metastases. This condition may lead to pain, bone fractures and spinal cord compression. Certain cancers have a higher rate of leading to bone metastases. [...]
[...] There are treatments and effective drugs, to prevent or cure this disease. Osteomalacia: This is the softening of bones caused by bone mineralization that is defective. The overall bone mass will be normal, but will be insufficiently mineralized and calcified. The resulting consequences are the same i.e. fragility and fractures. The most common cause is lack of vitamin D. This is a disease that can be cured completely by the administration of vitamin D. Toxic diseases This poisoning of the bone by some substances such as aluminum and fluoride can cause toxic diseases. [...]
[...] The Local factors are mainly mechanical. It is due to excessive mechanical stress: trauma of cartilage, joint overuse (repetitive activities that bind one or more joints), and all cartilage damage due to something else (e.g. infection). The general factors for osteoarthritis: Aging - the incidence of osteoarthritis increases with age. There are many joints in the body. During aging; there is a decrease in cartilage cells. The hormonal factor (menopause in women) and genetic factors are also responsible for multiple arthrosis. [...]
[...] They are mostly joint malformations, which are present from birth. All joint diseases can be classified into one of these categories based on the cause. III Abarticular diseases They affect structures close to the joints capsules such as the tendons, fascia, ligaments and some elements of the SNP. Four such groups can be defined Capsular pathologies: o This is called capsule retractile or capsular contracture. o This condition is characterized by the fibrosis of the capsule, with the thickening of the capsule and a retraction of its fiber, thereby decreasing the range of motion. [...]
[...] There are multiple causes for inflammatory joint diseases but not enough information about them to understand them. These diseases are associated with inflammatory risk factors, of which the three important factors are: 1. A genetic predisposition Immunological abnormalities (presence of auto-antibodies or autoimmune diseases) and 3. Assumed infectious factors. The infectious factor is ever present in the joint. It is remote, and leads to general inflammation. Rheumatoid arthritis: affects mostly the synovial joints. This leads to the destruction of the articular cartilage. [...]
