A joint is any
connection between two bones. It consists of bones,
muscles, ligaments, cartilage, and a lubricating fluid all enclosed by
a tough joint capsule. Joints are classified according to how they
connect to each other (structure). Fibrous Joint is joined by fibrous
connective tissue, Cartilaginous Joint is joined by cartilage, and
Synovial Joint is not directly joined. By the degree of their mobility,
joints can be classified as Synarthrosis Joint, which permits little or
no mobility like the skull; Amphiarthrosis Joint, which permits slight
mobility like the vertebrae; and the Diarthrosis Joint, which permits
variety of movements such as the shoulders, hip, elbow, and the knee.
Another classification of joints is based on their biomechanical
properties. Simple Joints have two articulation surfaces such as the
shoulder joint and the hip joint. Compound Joints have three or more
articulation surfaces such as the radiocarpal joint. Complex Joints
have two or more articulation surfaces and an articular disc or
meniscus such as in the knee joint.
The primary functions of joints are to provide motion and flexibility
to the skeletal frame and to act as shock absorbers. Another major
function is protection. Ligaments, an important part of the joints,
prevent dislocation and excessive movement that might cause breakage in
your body. They support many internal organs, including the uterus, the
bladder, the liver, and the diaphragm. These aspects directly affect
your lifestyle and productivity. The condition of your joints must not
be taken for granted since in a course of a day, joints are used to the
maximum. Every movement your body makes involves a joint activity. Like
a machine, joints are subjected to the inevitable "wear and tear"
process, thus, needing a serious maintenance.
Factors Affecting the
Degeneration of your Joints
Cartilage is a covering found in the end of each bone. It
is a tough material that cushions and protects the ends of the bones.
Arthritis develops when it begins to wear out.
Membrane is the synovial sac around each joint that
protects the joint and secretes the synovial fluid. Synovial fluid
serves to protect the joint, lubricate the joint, and provide
nourishment to the articular cartilage.
is a small sac that is not part of the joint but is near the joint,
which contains a fluid that lubricates the movement of muscles.
are elastic tissues able to change length. They allow for motion at the
are fibrous cords that attach muscles to the bones. Unlike muscles
which expand or contract, the tendons are unable to change length.
However, as the muscle moves, the tendon to which it is attached also
are much shorter fibrous cords located around the joints binding bone
ends together. They provide for the stability of a joint and hold the
adjacent bones in proper alignment.
Cartilage is a type of specialized tissue found in every
joint in the body. It is a C-shaped piece of cartilage located between
the major weight bearing bones of the knee, which acts to ensure
stability, lubrication, nutrition, and shock absorption.
- As you age, the cartilage wears down and becomes thinner. It changes
from being smooth to being fissured, which causes it to get damaged
easily. Aging causes cartilage to lose water, subjecting it to higher
risks of injury from repetitive motion and stress.
injuries and inflammation – Incidents such as having
twisted an ankle, falling on your wrist or having suffered from any
sports injury when you were younger contribute to future joint
condition. These minor injuries cause low levels of inflammation that
affects the actual biomechanical structure of the cartilage. The
cartilage at the place of injury is later destroyed.
- Loss of
muscle mass – Your muscles lose mass as you age. The
joints absorb more of the shocks that occur everyday, which makes it
more susceptible to damage. When you reach the age of 30, you begin to
lose 3-5 percent of your muscle mass per decade. Upon reaching 50, this
muscle mass decline increases to 1-2 percent per year.
overweight – Exceeding the recommended weight for your
body built also degenerate your joints. Your joints have to carry more
than their normal capacity. In the long run, this could be extremely
detrimental to the cartilage, especially in areas such as the knees and
ankles. Excess weight was significantly associated with an
increased risk of rapid cartilage loss. For a one-unit increase in your
BMI (Body Mass Index) than what is advisable to your body built and
height, the odds of rapid cartilage loss increased by 11 percent. This
cartilage loss directly depletes your overall joint health. For every
one pound of weight lost, there is a four pound reduction in the load
exerted on the weight-bearing joints in the body, particularly the knee.
- Overuse of
Joints - Overuse of a particular joint because of
occupation or sports speeds up joint damage. For instance, playing
tennis regularly can lead to overuse of the elbow joint and lead to
“tennis elbow” which signals the beginnings of joint deterioration.
COMMON JOINT INJURIES
This injury is caused by an
inflammation in the Achilles tendon, the
largest tendon in the body found right at the back of the ankle.
The inflammation is usually due to overuse, as in frequent jumping in
volleyball or basketball. The most common case is over-pronation of the
ankle and the foot, causing the tendon to pull off from the center.
Anti-inflammatory agents help to relieve swelling and pain. Restraint
from physical activities is required to engender healing.
The most common ankle
sprain happens when the foot rolls to the outside
and sprains the ligaments on the outside of the ankle. The outside of
the ankle swells up and throbs, and may turn black and blue around the
injury. Effective treatment for ankle sprain is the combination of
rest, cold compress (ice), elevation, and compression. This limits
internal bleeding and cuts down swelling. Strengthening exercises can
help overcome stiffness and restore mobility.
Medically termed as
Chondromalacia Patella, Runner's Knee is due to
misalignment of the kneecap. The kneecap pulls off to one
predominant side and rubs on the side causing both the sides and the
cartilage to wear out. Sometimes, fluid buildup will cause swelling in
the affected knee. Pain can develop around the back of the kneecap or
in the back of the knee after participating in any running sport. Fluid
may also build up and cause swelling in the knee. Isometric exercises
are recommended to begin strengthening the quadriceps by contracting
and relaxing the muscle. A large dose of aspirin, two plain or buffered
aspirin pills four times a day may improve the condition and may help
reduce inflammation within the kneecap cartilage.
Rupture of ligaments
may occur with traumatic injuries. Such injuries
may involve automobile accidents, falling from heights, stumbling, and
falling during running. A painful swelling and bruise takes place on
the affected joint. The most frequent ruptures of lateral ligaments
(like the above Anterior Cruciate Ligament - ACL)
occur in young adults while older people usually suffer more from a
fracture of the lateral ankle. Injuries of epiphyseal cartilage
commonly occur in younger children. The common cause of ruptured
ligaments is ankle joint distortion or supination trauma, more
popularly known as foot sprain. Symptoms of ruptured ligaments include
severe pain that begins immediately after injury, weakness of affected
muscles, limitation of mobility, immobility, swelling, and sensitivity
to pressure. Treatment includes total rest and surgery or fixation of
torn bone fragments and recovery takes about 1 to 12 weeks, depending
upon the extent of damage.
Shin splints are pains
in the muscles near the shin bone caused by
overuse and running or jumping on hard surfaces. The pain occurs on the
inner side of the middle third of the shin bone. With repeated stress,
the arch of the foot begins to pull some of its muscle fibers loose
from the shin bone. This causes small areas of bleeding around the
lining of the bone, and accompanying pain.
Your shoulder bones are
held together by a group of muscles known as
the rotator cuff muscles. When an injury occurs to the rotator cuff
muscles, they respond by swelling. The pressure within the muscles
increases, which results in compression and reduced blood flow in the
small blood vessels. When the blood flow decreases, the muscle tissue
begins to erode and stretch out. This allows the head of the joint to
become loose within the shoulder socket. Pain and inflammation begins
to take place. Softball, tennis, volleyball, swimming, and weight
training pose the greaterst risk for shoulder impringement. Symptoms
include difficulty reaching up behind the back, pain with overhead use
of the arm, and weakness of shoulder muscles. Some people will also
experience ruptured biceps muscle as part of prolonged impingement
condition. Physical therapy, ultrasound, moist heat and electrical
muscle stimulation followed by rehabilitative exercises are recommended
Tennis Elbow is
characterized by an inflammation of the muscles in the
forearm and the tendons in the elbow. This is usually caused by
repetitive twisting of the wrist or forearm which causes irritation. A
tennis player most often aggravates the elbow by hitting the ball late
on the backhand side, straining the forearm muscles and tendons, which
makes the condition named after the sport. A second type of
tennis elbow is known as medial epicondylitis, which causes pain on the
inside of the elbow. It is most often seen among weight-lifters,
golfers, baseball pitchers, and tennis players who hit topspin
forehands. Cortisone injection is the common option to reduce the
inflammation around the elbow and ease the pain, but the main cause of
the problem, which is over-stressing the forearm tendon, is not
addressed. Exercises such as wrist curls (flexing the wrist
forward while holding a light dumbbell at the side with the palm facing
forward) and reverse wrist curls can help improve forearm strength.
Squeezing a stressball until the hand is fatigued also strengthens the
Arthritis is a group of conditions involving inflammatory damage to the
joints of the body. According to estimates from the American Academy of
Orthopedic Surgeons, each year, Arthritis results in 750,000
hospitalizations and 36 million outpatient visits. Ten years ago,
medical care for Arthritis cost nearly 22 billion dollars, and the
total cost, including lost productivity, topped 82 billion. There are
approximately 46 million adults in America that suffer from over 100
forms of Arthritis; nearly two-thirds are younger than 65. Symptoms of
Arthritis include pain and limited function of joints: tenderness,
stiffness, swelling, redness, and warmth. Causes of Arthritis include
injury, hereditary factors, infections, metabolic abnormalities,
physical strains which hasten wear and tear of joints, and an
overactive immune system causing inflammation.
Osteoarthritis (also known as Degenerative Joint Disease or DJD) is a
disease characterized by the degeneration or ‘wear and tear’ of
articular (joint surface) cartilage usually accompanied by an
overgrowth of bone (osteophytes), narrowing of the joint space,
sclerosis or hardening of bone at the joint surface, and deformity in
joints. This is the most common form of joint disease, sparing no age,
race, or geographic area. Osteoarthritis affects more than 21 million
people in the United States alone. This form of Arthritis is
more common in males before the age of 45. In women,
Osteoarthritis is diagnosed more often after the age of 55. Heredity,
injury, fractures around a joint surface, and overuse are the
triggering factors of Osteoarthritis. The disease may occur secondary
to an injury to the joint due to a fracture, repetitive or overuse
injury, or metabolic disorders. Symptoms for Osteoarthritis include
joint stiffness, which usually lasts for more than 15 minutes,
swelling, and tenderness around the joint. There may be pain upon joint
motion which is made worse with activity or weight-bearing and relieved
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
RA is a common form of Arthritis that causes inflammation of joints and
that can also affect internal organ systems. It affects women three to
five times as often as men. The peak age of incidence is between the
ages of 40-60. Approximately 33% of patients will not be able to work
after only 5 years and after 10 years, over half will have substantial
functional disability. About 66 million people are afflicted worldwide
by this disease. Possible causes of RA are hereditary factors,
infectious agents (viruses, bacteria, and fungi), and autoimmune
disease (where the immune system attacks the body's own tissues leading
to inflammation in joints and other vital organs). Symptoms of RA
include fatigue, loss of energy, lack of appetite, low-grade fever,
muscle and joint aches, and stiffness.
Septic Arthritis is a bacterial infection within the joint that can
lead to severe erosion of the joint surface and may progress to
systemic illness. It is caused by a direct invasion of joint space by
various microorganisms (bacteria, viruses, mycobacteria, and
fungi). Symptoms of septic arthritis include fever, chills,
as well as joint pain, swelling, redness, stiffness, and warmth. Joints
most commonly involved are large joints, such as the knees, ankles,
hips, and elbows. In people with high risk factors for joint infection,
unusual joints can be infected, including the joint where the collar
bone (clavicle) meets the breastbone (sternum). Risk factors include
diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, cirrhosis, cancer and kidney disease.
Approximately 20,000 cases of Septic Arthritis occur in the United
States each year.
Gout is an inflammatory
form of Arthritis associated with elevated uric
acid levels, intra-articular crystals, and sudden onset of pain and
swelling of joints. Gout can affect people with different levels of
intensity and frequency, sometimes consisting of one attack and no
other problems. Other people may have frequent attacks, with persistent
joint pain and damage in one or more joints. In some cases, the uric
acid crystals can accumulate inside the joint and within the
surrounding soft tissues. These deposits are called tophi and can cause
significant joint damage over the years. Statistics indicate that about
5 million Americans currently suffer from Gout.
Ankylosing Spondylitis is a chronic, systemic type of Arthritis that
affects mostly the spine and sacroileac joints. It affects up to
500,000 people in the United States. Unlike other forms of Arthritis
which usually affects the elderly, AS is more common in individuals
between the ages of 17 and 35. It is most common in males usually
onsetting before age 45. About 75% of Anklosing Spondylitis patients
have back pain complaints. Other symptoms are morning stiffness,
fatigue, uveitis, and low grade anemia. Ankylosing Spondylitis is
believed to be genetically inherited, but an environmental factors like
infections promptsthe disease to manifest and to develop
Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa, a tiny fluid-filled sac that
functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of
the body. There are 160 bursae in the body. The major bursae are
located adjacent to the tendons near the large joints, such as the
shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees. Injury and infection can cause
Bursitis. Symptoms include localized pain, swelling, and tenderness.
Bursitis which does not involve infections can be treated by rest, and
anti-inflammatory and pain medications. However, Infectious Bursitis
may need further treatment such as antibiotic therapy, surgical
drainage, and bursectomy (removal of the infected bursa sac).
Osteoporosis affects approximately 200 million women throughout the
world. It is a condition that causes weakening of the trabeculaer
(bridges that keep the bones strong). Some of these bridges break
microscopically making the bones more susceptible to fractures. The
most commonly known Osteoporosis is post-menopausal, in which the
balance between breakdown of bone and new bone formation (remodeling)
favors loss of bone. There is a precursor to Osteoporosis called
Osteopenia (a condition where bone mineral density is lower than
normal). There are secondary causes of bone loss, such as use
of prednisone or other corticosteroids, other drugs (heparin, high
thyroid hormone replacement, phenytoin), alcoholism, low testosterone
levels, gastrectomy, hypogonadism, hyperthyroidism, or osteogenesis
imperfecta. Symptoms include chronic lower back pain and loss of height
or curving of the spine.
SLE is an inflammatory disease that can affects joints, skin, muscles,
and other internal organs. It is an autoimmune disease characterized by
acute and chronic inflammation of various tissues of the body. Variants
of this condition include discoid lupus, drug-induced lupus, limited
cutaneous LE (lupus erythematosus), and mixed or overlapped syndromes.
No precise reason for Lupus is known yet, however, heredity, viruses,
excessive exposure to ultraviolet light, and certain medications are
believed to trigger occurrence of the disease. The disease can affect
all ages but most commonly begins from 20 to 45 years of age, and is
eight times more common in women than in men. Symptoms include fatigue,
low-grade fever, loss of appetite, muscle aches, arthritis, ulcers of
the mouth and nose, and inflammation of the lining that surrounds the
lungs and the heart. About 5 million people throughout the world is
affected by Lupus.
Western medicine relies on aggressive and costly prescription drugs and
surgery to deal with joint problems. These methods generally address
only the symptoms and not the underlying causes. Resorting to pain
killers and analgesics for joint pain is not a long term solution. As
soon as you stop using the drugs, the problem returns! Also these
prescription drugs often result in unwanted and even dangerous side
The options for drug treatment are bewildering: Acetaminophen,
Analgesics, Aspirin, Azathioprine, Chloroquine, Corticosteroids,
Cyclophosphamide, Cyclosporine, Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs
(DMARDs), Hyaluronan Injections, Hydroxychloroquine, Leflunomide,
Methotrexate, Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Opioids,
The combined COMMON side effects of these drugs include acne, back
pain, bronchitis, burning sensation, coughing, diarrhea, difficulty
sleeping, dizziness or lightheadedness, dry skin, flushing headache,
heartburn, increased appetite, increased sweating, increased hair
growth, indigestion, loss of appetite, mild hair loss, mild nausea,
muscle aches, nervousness, runny nose, sinus infection, sleeplessness,
stomach pain or upset, tiredness, urinary tract infection, vomiting,
weakness, and weight loss.
The combined SEVERE side effects of these medications include severe
allergic reactions (rash; itching; hives; difficulty breathing;
tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue),
chest pain or tightness, blood in the urine, calf or leg pain or
swelling, coma, confusion, coughing up blood, dark urine, dizziness,
fever, chills, or sore throat, increased or painful urination,
menstrual changes, mental and mood changes, mouth sores, muscle pain or
aches, one-sided weakness, pale or fatty stools, severe or persistent
nausea, swollen and/or peeling and/or blistered skin, vomiting, or
diarrhea, shortness of breath, stomach pain, unusual bleeding or
bruising, unusual growths or lumps, unusual weakness or fatigue, vision
changes or vision loss, and yellowing of the eyes or skin.
Surgery should be considered as a last resort because it is complicated
and carries great risk. Death is always a possibility when general
anesthesia is used. Possible complications include infection, blood
clots, loosening of the prosthesis (artificial extension that replaced
the joint), dislocation, prosthetic breakage, and nerve injury.
Patients with severe deformity from advanced joint disorders such as
rheumatoid arthritis, long standing osteoarthritis and trauma, face
greater risks of complications. Common surgical procedures are as
- Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in
which an examination or treatment of damage of the interior of a joint
is performed using an arthroscope. An arthroscope is a type of
endoscope inserted into the joint through a small incision.
Arthroscopic procedures can be performed either to evaluate or to treat
many orthopaedic conditions including torn floating cartilage, torn
surface cartilage, ACL reconstruction, and trimming damaged cartilage.
This surgery can be done in shoulders, wrists, knees, and the spine.
Recovery rates depends upon the patient's overall health.
- Arthroplasty or Knee Replacement Surgery replaces the
weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint to relieve pain and
disability caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic
arthritis, and physical injury. The operation involves substantial
postoperative pain and vigorous physical rehabilitation. The recovery
period is 6 weeks or longer during which time assistance is required
- Joint Replacement for Elbow, Wrists and Shoulders uses
metal alloys and polyethylene (plastic) to eliminate pain and restore
mobility to elbows, wrists or shoulders. Such surgery is only
recommended when all other conservative treatment options failed.
Ayurveda, the science
of life, prevention, and longevity, is the oldest
and most holistic and comprehensive medical system available.
Its fundamentals can be found in Hindu scriptures called the Vedas -
the ancient Indian books of wisdom written over 5,000 years
ago. Ayurveda uses the inherent principles of nature to help
maintain health in a person by keeping the individual's body, mind, and
spirit in perfect equilibrium with nature.
India Herbs has a seasoned group of Ayurvedic doctors specialized in
Kaya Chikitsa, one of the eight major specialties of Ayurveda that
deals with Internal Medicine. It is the branch of Ayurveda that offers
therapies for purification and detoxification. Kaya Chikitsa dwells
deep into defining the root cause of a disease and prescribes the
therapeutic use of various herbal medicines and holistic treatments for
enhancing the capabilities and vigor of your body's healing
capabilities while strengthening the body and overall well-being.
India Herbs' Kaya Chikitsa doctors combine a proprietary herbal formula
based on centuries' old wisdom with advice on diet, exercise, mental training, and
relaxation to help men and women recover from joint injuries.
You can optimize your recovery from joint injury and ensure long-term
joint health by:
Damage - Years of stressful living caused damage to your
body. To help reverse this, JointMender releases hundreds of
that act at the molecular level to heal joint
injuries and restore suppleness by delivering targeted nutrition, reducing pain and inflammation, stimulating circulation and metabolic
heat, lubricating joints, promoting cellular regeneration, and preventing auto-immune response.
a Healthy Weight – By
maintaining a healthy and
reasonable weight, you will decrease the load on your joints. This
reduces further wear and tear of your cartilage. Weight loss reduces
joint pain and helps prevent the progression of Osteoarthritis. Weight
loss of only 15 pounds can cut knee pain in half for overweight
individuals with Arthritis. Losing as few as 11 pounds can cut the risk
of developing knee Osteoarthritis by 50 percent in women.
Food High in Purines - Uric Acid is found in high-purine
food. High levels of Uric Acid triggers joint pain and aggravates Gout
and Arthritis. You should avoid eating internal organs such as heart,
liver, and kidneys. Refrain from using sea salt and replace it with
regular iodized salt in your daily diet because sea salt increases Uric
Acid levels. You should also avoid excessive intake of chicken, beef,
pork, seafood, fish, beans, oatmeal, wheat germ, asparagus, peas,
spinach, and mushrooms. These food items have purine content, though
not in high levels.
Milk - There had been a widespread notion about the
excellent benefits of milk for overall bone health. But recent
scientific research has identified a multitude of problems associated
with milk-protein intake. The latest studies show that far from
protecting bones, milk actually increases the risk of Osteoporosis by
eroding bone-making cells. This is due to the high-acidity of milk
absorbed by the bones that causes the depletion of its bone-making cell
Omega-3 Fatty Acids - Essential fatty acids, Omega-3 Fatty
Acid in particular, provide lubrication for the joints. They also
reduce inflammation in the joints that are the source of pain.
Recommended daily dosage is 600 to 1,000 mg. Excellent sources of
Omega-3 include salmon, flax seeds, and walnuts.
Vitamin D Intake - Vitamin D generally protects the joints
and bones. It plays an important role in the inhibition of calcitonin
release from the thyroid gland. Calcitonin acts directly on osteoclasts
to inhibit bone reabsorption and cartilage degradation. It also
modulates neuromuscular and immune function and reduces inflammation. A
daily dose of 400 to 800 units of vitamin D is recommended. Good
sources of Vitamin D include salmon, tuna and eggs.
Calcium Intake - Calcium supports bone structure. 1
percent of the total calcium supply in the body is utilized for muscle
contraction, blood vessel expansion and contraction, secretion of
hormones and enzymes, and transmission of nervous system's impulses.
The other 99 percent of the body's calcium supports bones and teeth
structure. Calcium facilitates the continuous remodeling of the bones.
A daily dose of 1,200 mg is recommended. Good sources of Calcium
include soybean milk, brocolli, cabbage, and oranges.
Regularly – Combining low-impact routines such as swimming
or walking with strength training (weights) and stretching exercises
like yoga or Pilates are best for joint care. Strength-training
exercises must be done three times a week. The 1 to 2 days rest in
between work-outs allows the muscles to rebuild and become stronger.
Strength exercises enhance the ability of the muscles to withstand
resistance. Stretching exercises and conditioning exercises, also
called Aerobics, improve cardiovascular fitness and flexibilty. Certain
stretching exercises are advised to be done daily. Among these are the
Spinal Rotation Stretch, which relaxes the hips, the rotator muscles of
the lower and mid-back, and the ligaments that support the disks; the
Towel Stretch, which increases mobility in the shoulder girdle; and the
Cat-Dog Stretch, which helps improve flexibility of your spine
essential for any type of movement or activity. All these will help
reduce stiffness in the joints and reverse or delay further damage.
Keeping your heart rate at its target heart rate zone (50-85 percent of
your maximun heart rate) for 20 minutes three or more times a week with
brisk walking or jogging is a good for cardiovascular health.
A healthy cardiovascular system is essential for transporting nutrients
to your bones and muscles and carrying away inflammatory fluids and
Proper Posture – Stretching at regular intervals releases
tension from your joints and keeps them from stiffening. This is
especially applicable if you work long hours at a desk. Maintain good
posture. Keeping your legs hip width apart and throwing your shoulders
back is the right standing position. When you sit, keep your feet,
knees and hips at 90-degree angles. Poor posture can lead to constant,
acute, and chronic pains such as lower back pain, stiffened shoulder,
neck discomfort and weak core muscles. It also increases risk factors
for auto-degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
due to weakening of muscles and increased pressure on joints.
– Stress is linked to increased inflammation in your body which can
lead to joint problems. You can relieve stress by practicing relaxation
methods such as meditation, deep breathing, and chanting. A calm state
of mind has a positive effect on one’s overall health as well.
