When a joint is stiff, it causes inflammation and weakens the muscles protecting the joints. Stretching is the best way to keep your body flexible and maintains motion around the joints.
Maintain a healthy diet by avoiding saturated fats and processed foods. Minimizing excess body fat and inflammatory responses are ways to ensure healthy muscles and joints.
Choosing the right shoes for your legs is very important as it provides cushioning, stability and comfort while walking. It’s time to replace your worn out shoes and find the right one.
Staring at the computer screen for too long can cause eyestrain, blurry vision, dry eyes, headaches, neck, back and shoulder pain.
Avoid being overactive and know when to stop a certain movement. Sometimes, “no pain, no gain” can lead to problems if not addressed early. So, do not strain your joints.
Keeping your weight within a healthy range is the best thing you can do for your joints. Exercise regularly and maintain your weight to reduce the pressure on your knees, hips and back.

A total hip replacement is indicated in the patients with severe or painful osteoarthritis of the hip joint or in the case of fractures. Hip replacement relieves pain and functional disability and improves the quality of life. The procedure involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone and replacing it with the prosthetic components. A general anesthesia is administered before the procedure.
During the procedure, the incision is made in the upper part of the thigh. The damaged femoral head is removed and replaced with a metal stem. The femoral stem is cemented into the bone. A ceramic ball is placed over the upper part of the stem. A metal socket is used to replace the damaged cartilage of the socket. A plastic liner is then inserted between the new metal ball and socket to allow smooth gliding movement. Then the incision is closed in layers with suture and covered with sterile dressing.
Biceps tenodesis is indicated for the patients with biceps tendon tears, severe biceps tendonopathy, or biceps instability that may be associated with rotator cuff tears. Biceps tenodesis procedure involves detaching of the normal attachment of the biceps tendon and reinserting the tendon to the bone of the humerus. A general anesthesia is administered before the procedure.
During the procedure, the tendon is marked with a suture using arthroscope. The tendon is cut using an arthroscopic scissor and a small incision is made in the front of the shoulder to access the biceps tendon. The tendon is trimmed and fixed back with a screw into deep bone tunnel of the humerus which is made by the reamer. Then the incision is closed with sutures and covered with a sterile dressing.
