Why joints wear out

The clinical center coburg informs on wednesday, 17. April, about arthrosis and its development. For every human being, like seeing and hearing well, moving well and without pain is a basic need. With a life expectancy of more than 80 years, it seems almost miraculous that our joints can function for such a long time in most cases.

Unfortunately, not all people are lucky enough to get through life permanently pain-free and mobile. Millions of people, especially the elderly, are affected by premature joint degeneration, which can have a considerable impact on their health. As part of the "orthopaedics" patient information series informs the clinic for orthopaedics and trauma surgery at the clinical center coburg on 17. April from 18 o’clock over arthrose and their emergence. According to a press release, the event, like the previous ones, will take place in the parish center st. Augustin and is free of charge for all interested parties.

A question of genes?

What are the factors that provide one person with a lifetime of good joint function, but lead to premature joint deterioration in another?? In many cases, plant-related factors play a major role. The bony shape of the socket, especially in the case of the hoof joint, is of great importance in terms of premature wear. Here the prevention begins already shortly after the birth. Ultrasound examinations of newborns have made it possible for the last 30 years to detect and treat malformations in the child’s hoof joint. Furthermore, abnormal stresses on the joint surfaces, such as those caused by overweight bowlegs or knock-knees, can lead to increased wear and tear on the joints.

In addition to these congenital causes, to name only the most important, the consequences of accidents with bone fractures or cartilage damage also play an important role. The importance of the articular cartilage, which covers the joint surfaces with a buffering layer, must be emphasized here. Unfortunately, once articular cartilage has been destroyed, it cannot regenerate, but is replaced by inferior scar tissue. However, this often does not withstand the high strain on the joints in the long term. But lifestyle issues also play a decisive role in the development of premature joint deformity. Excessive weight has been proven to cause overloading, especially of the joints of the lower extremities (hips, knees, ankles). In many cases, already existing complaints can be significantly alleviated by losing body weight. But gout, which is associated with high meat consumption, can also promote arthrosis through the deposition of so-called gout crystals in the cartilage and menisci.

In the lecture it will go also around the versatile possibilities in the treatment and around the so-called rheumatism illnesses as well as around operations and for example the employment of artificial joints go
