Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that deals with injuries, diseases and deformities of bones and muscles of the body. This includes bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and nerves, which allows you to make a movement, work, and be active. Common orthopedic injuries and disorders are arthritis, bursitis, elbow pain and problems, lower back pain, fractures, soft tissue injury, etc. Since arthritis is the most common among the injuries and disorders of orthopedics, then let’s discuss arthritis.

Types
Arthritis is a very common yet a serious problem to deal with. People with this disease show signs of pain in their connecting tissue, restricted movement and swelling. Most people suffer from some or any form of arthritis, a chronic disease that spreads slowly.

Osteoarthritis
This is the most common type of orthopedic problem, and generally, has an increased chance of occurring as one ages. Areas it affects are hand, hip, spine, and joints. It is also known as degenerative arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis
This disease causes a mass to form over the joint, thus restricting its motion and causing severe inflammation. The disease occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own cells and tissues.

Fractures
Fractures are also listed among the very common types of orthopedic injuries. Open fractures are those in which the broken bone tries to penetrate the skin, while in closed fracture this does not occur.

Homeopathic Remedies

Today’s hectic and tiring lifestyle many-a-times leads to injuries and conditions some of which are orthopedic. Orthopedic conditions affect our life as they directly target our muscles and joints, slowing down our movements. In such cases, Homeopathy proves to be a great boon but one should opt for it after consulting a qualified practitioner.
