Symptoms of osteoarthritis

Symptoms of osteoporosis in osteoarthritis

Systemic osteoporosis is a complex multifactorial disease characterized by usually slow asymptomatic progression until the appearance of bone fractures, which in most cases are the first reliable signs of osteoporosis.

Clinical forms and variants of osteoarthritis

Analysis of the results of large population studies allowed us to distinguish four of the most common clinical forms of osteoarthritis

Shoulder and elbow joint osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is one of the causes of pain and dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint. Most often there is a secondary osteoarthritis of this joint against the background of inflammatory arthropathies.

Osteoarthrosis of the spine

Osteoarthrosis of the apophysial joints of the spine (spondylarthrosis, osteoarthritis of the spine) and degeneration of the intervertebral discs (osteochondrosis) are various diseases.

Osteoarthrosis of the joints of the brushes

Unfortunately, osteoarthritis of the joints of the hands is not as thoroughly studied as gonarthrosis and coxarthrosis. This is probably due to the relative good quality of osteoarthritis of this localization.

Osteoarthritis of the hip joint (coxarthrosis)

Coxarthrosis - osteoarthritis of the hip joint. Most often, osteoarthritis affects the upper pole of the hip joint with upper lateral displacement of the femoral head (about 60% of patients with coxarthrosis, men suffer more often than women).

Osteoarthrosis of the knee joint (gonarthrosis)

The most common is isolated osteoarthritis in the medial tibiofemoral department and combined lesion of the medial Tibi-femoral and patellofemoral divisions.

The main symptoms of osteoarthritis

In most cases, the patient cannot accurately indicate the time and reason when the first symptoms of osteoarthrosis appear. A sufficiently long time, even in the presence of histopathological changes and radiographic signs, is asymptomatic.
