The exact cause of osteoarthritis is not fully understood. However, it is believed to be a combination of factors including aging, genetic predisposition, joint overuse, previous joint injuries, obesity, and certain medical conditions.
The most common symptoms of osteoarthritis include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, decreased range of motion, joint tenderness, and a grating sensation during joint movement.
Surgical options may include joint replacement surgery, arthroscopy, osteotomy, or other procedures depending on the joint involved and the severity of the condition. The decision to undergo surgery is made on an individual basis after thorough evaluation and discussion with a healthcare professional.
Joint replacement surgery can provide significant pain relief, improve joint function, and enhance the quality of life for individuals with advanced osteoarthritis. It involves replacing the damaged joint surfaces with artificial implants, allowing for smoother joint movement and reduced pain.
While it may not be possible to completely prevent osteoarthritis, certain lifestyle choices can help reduce the risk or delay its onset. Maintaining a healthy weight, engaging in regular exercise, avoiding joint injuries, and practicing proper joint protection techniques may help in preventing or minimizing the impact of osteoarthritis.
The recovery time after surgery for osteoarthritis varies depending on the specific procedure performed and individual factors. We will provide you with a detailed recovery timeline and instructions specific to your case.
