PAINFUL ARC SYNDROME:
- Painful arc syndrome or impingement syndrome is a very common shoulder problem. Symptoms occur when you raise your arm overhead or lift your arm to the side away from your body.
- Dupuytren’s contracture is an abnormal thickening of the tissue just beneath the skin. This thickening occurs in the palm and can extend into the fingers. Firm pits, bumps and cords (thick lines) can develop and cause the fingers to bend into the palm.
- This condition may also be known as Dupuytren’s Disease.
- Dislocations typically result when a joint experiences an unexpected or unbalanced impact.
- A dislocation occurs when a bone slips out of a joint. For example, the top of your arm bone fits into a joint at your shoulder. When it slips or pops out of that joint, you have a dislocated shoulder.
- Dislocation almost any joint in your body, including your knee, hip, ankle, or shoulder.
- ANSWER 1: Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation of the bursa. The bursa is a sac filled with lubricating fluid, located between tissues such as bone, muscle, tendons, and skin, that decreases rubbing, friction, and irritation.
- ANSWER 2: Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs — called bursae.That cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near your joints. Bursitis occurs when bursae become inflamed.
- Myositis ossificans (MO) is a benign process characterised by heterotopic ossification usually within large muscles.
- Its importance stems in large part from its ability to mimic more aggressive pathological processes.
- Myositis ossificans is one of the skeletal “don’t touch” lesions.
CUBITAL TUNNEL SYNDROME:
- Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that involves pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve, which can cause numbness or tingling in the ring and small fingers, pain in the forearm, and weakness in the hand.
- The ulnar nerve runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow.
LATERAL EPICONDYLITIS :
- Lateral epicondylitis, commonly known as “tennis elbow,” is a painful condition involving the tendons that attach to the bone on the outside (lateral) part of the elbow. Tendons transmit a muscle’s force to the bone.
- The muscle involved in this condition, the extensor carpi radialis brevis, helps to straighten and stabilize the wrist.
MEDIAL EPICONDYLITIS :
- Medial epicondylitis is also known as golfer’s elbow, baseball elbow, suitcase elbow, or forehand tennis elbow. It’s characterized by pain from the elbow to the wrist on the inside (medial side) of the elbow.
- The pain is caused by damage to the tendons that bend the wrist toward the palm. A tendon is a tough cord of tissue that connects muscles to bones.
- Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender points or trigger points.
- Pain is felt over the entire body. The pain can be deep, sharp, dull, throbbing, or aching, and it is pain that’s felt in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments around the joints.
CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition characterized by compression of a nerve in the wrist that can interfere with a person’s ability to use the wrist and the hand.
- In this condition, the median nerve is squeezed as it passes through the carpal tunnel.
- The carpal tunnel is an opening in the wrist that is formed by the carpal bones on the bottom of the wrist and ligaments across the top of the wrist. The median nerve provides sensory and motor functions to the thumb and three middle fingers.
