Arthritis refers to inflammation of a joint and/or joint pain. There are many different types of arthritis and, over time, the symptoms may become more and more severe, leading to loss of range of motion and/or inability of the joint to support weight.
Radiculopathy can be caused by cervical or lumbar disc herniation, degenerative disease of the spine, inflammation or irritation of the nerve root(s), or spinal stenosis.
Frozen Shoulder/Adhesive Capsulitis
Adhesive Capsulitis is a condition that results in painful shoulder with restricted range of motion. This is a rather common syndrome that develops in individuals as a result of prolonged immobility. It is characterized by profound loss of range of motion actively and passively in the shoulder joint. Generally, it is seen in the age group of 40-60 years of age, and more commonly in females
Joints are ubiquitous in the human body as they are involved in movement of the spine and extremity. Joints play a crucial role in the kinematics of the human body as they are involved with movement and also help in unloading sheer pressure and weight of the body.
Radiculopathy is dysfunction of a spinal nerve root (or roots) that results in pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in either your arm or leg depending on which nerve root(s) are involved. When radiculopathy is present in the lumbar nerve roots, it produces sciatica; in the cervical nerve roots, it produces pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the shoulder, arm, wrist, and hands.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a form of arthritis where the body’s own immune system attacks the capsule around the joint. This results in severe inflammation of the joint, with the joint often becoming swollen, warm, stiff, and painful. Unlike osteoarthritis, gentle movement often improves the pain in mild cases of rheumatoid arthritis.
