Common Chronic Pain Conditons

Here are the common conditions seen by orthopedic surgeons.

Arthritis

Arthritis is the inflammation of a joint that causes pain and swelling. Women are more prone to arthritis than men. Other forms of arthritis include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a chronic disease of the joints that is caused by wear and tear. Rheumatoid arthritis is also a type of joint inflammation caused by the attack of the body’s immune system.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes muscle pain, affecting soft tissues all over the body. The type of pain that can be experienced worsens with activity and stress. Studies say that fibromyalgia may be linked to immune problems.

Fractures

Fractures occur after an extreme force is applied to the bones caused by trauma, falls, or any direct blow to the body. Foot pain and problems are caused by improper function of the foot.

Common Foot Problems & Conditions

Here are some foot problems with symptoms that need to be addressed by an orthopedic surgeon:

Heel spurs

Bone growths on the heel bone.

Corns

Callus growths developing on top of the toes.

Bunion

A a protrusion of the big toe joint.

Hammertoes

A condition which causes the middle joint of the affected toe to poke out.

Ankle Sprains

A common foot injury that may be caused by an awkward foot placement.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

A condition that affects the nerves of the wrist. The main symptoms are numbness and tingling in the thumb, index and middle fingers.

Other Common Conditions

Osteoporosis

A medical condition wherein the bones are brittle and fragile. People with osteoporosis have signs of broken bones and vertebral collapse, leading to extreme pain and deformity of the spine. Typically, this is caused by calcium and vitamin D deficiency.

Scoliosis

An abnormal curvature of the spine or the backbone.

Shoulder Conditions

Shoulder pain can be localized in one area or can spread on the shoulders and arms. Some types of shoulder problems are dislocation, separation, bursitis (inflammation of the bursa), impingement syndrome and frozen shoulder.

Soft-Tissue Injuries

Soft-tissue injuries of tendons, muscles and ligaments may cause swelling, bruising and damage. For example, a contusion is produced by a blunt force. Another example is a sprain that injures ligaments due to twisting of the ankles, knees or wrists.

Knee Conditions

Knee problems are consequences of the aging process and other sudden movements that stresses the knee. Examples of these are knee sprains and tendonitis (inflammation of tendons).
