Also known as joint inflammation, there are more than 100 different types of arthritis, affecting different joints in the body and causing swelling, pain, and stiffness. Inflammation is usually temporary, but in arthritic joints, it may cause long-lasting or permanent disability. The most common forms of arthritis include:
• Rheumatoid Arthritis
This condition occurs when there is swelling or irritation of the synovial membrane around the tendons in the carpal tunnel, resulting in pressure on the median nerve. Common causes include:
• Repetitive and forceful grasping with the hand
• Repetitive bending of the wrist
• Thyroid imbalance
• Sugar diabetes
• Hormonal changes during menopause
• Broken or dislocated bones

The bones in your hands, wrists, arms, and legs can absorb shock by giving in slightly and then returning to their original shape and position. However, if the force is too great, bones will break, causing a fracture. There are different degrees of fractures that can be sustained:
Osteoporosis is a disease of progressive bone loss that can lead to an increased risk of fractures, including painful fractures of the hip, spine, wrist, arm and leg that often occur as a result of a fall. Bone densitometry tests can be performed to help us access and manage your risks.
The term "arthroscopy" literally means to "look within the joint," and this surgical procedure helps orthopedic surgeons diagnose and treat joint problems. With the use of special arthroscopic instruments, many conditions can be treated this way, avoiding the need for open surgery.
A joint replacement involves the removal of an arthritic or damaged joint, which is replaced with an artificial joint, also known as prosthesis.
Splints and casts support and protect injured bones and soft tissue. They help to reduce pain, swelling and muscle spasms, and serve to immobilize the protected area during the healing process.
