Osteoarthritis is a degenerative wear- and-tear process occurring in joints that are impaired by congenital defect. Age, vascular insufficiency, or previous disease or injury. It is by far the commonest variety of arthritis.
It is caused by wear and tear. If a joint were never put under stress it would never become osteoarthritic. Hence the relatively lightly stressed joints of the upper limb are in general, less prone to osteoarthritis than the heavily stressed joints of the lower limb. Nearly always, however there is a predisposing cause that accelerates the wear-and -tear process. Alost any abnormal ity of a joint may be responsible indirectly for the development of osteoarthritis- often many years later. The main predisposing factors are : 1) congenital ill-development; 2) irregularity of joint surfaces from previous fracture; 3) internal derangements, such as a loose body or a torn meniscus; 4) previous disease leaving a damaged articular cartilage 5) mal-alignment of a joint from any cause 6) obesity and overweight. Age alone is not the cause of osteoarthritis through it may be associated with an impaired capacity for tissue repair after injury and this may be an indirect causative factor.
Cervical spondylosis is a common degenerative condition of the cervical spine that most likely is caused by age-related changes in the intervertebral disks. Clinically, several syndromes, both overlapping and distinct, are seen: neck and shoulder pain, suboccipital pain and headache, radicular symptoms, and cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). As disk degeneration occurs, mechanical stresses result in osteophytic bars, which form along the ventral aspect of the spinal canal.Readmore »
