Bone and joint problems are becoming increasingly common in all strata of society. Among younger people, the reasons for this include sedentary habits, over or incorrect exercise to compensate for these habits and other lifestyle issues. The increase in longevity means that the natural degeneration of bone and muscle with age is becoming more acute and widespread. Injury, among both the young and the old, is another reason for orthopaedic problems. Minor aches and pains are common at all ages. If the pain doesn’t subside in a short while, or if it increases or causes mobility issues, then it may be a sign of a more serious orthopaedic condition. An examination and diagnosis by an orthopaedic specialist to determine the cause of the problem should be done without delay. Typically, the earlier a problem is detected and treated, the greater the chances of a successful recovery. The advanced orthopaedic care available at NMC coupled with the highly qualified medical staff mean that the treatment needed to recover from even serious problems in advanced stages is now possible.
Back problems too are on the rise among all age groups. Back pain ranges from a nagging discomfort to severe pain that limits mobility and affects quality of life. In most cases, mild pain can be treated with rest and mild medication. However, if the pain does not subside or is severe, it may be the sign of a spine disorder caused by an undiagnosed medical condition or injury. Spine problems may be related to the vertebrae or the spinal cord that connects the brain to the rest of the body. At NMC, we know that spine problems are not just painful, they can be serious medical conditions that limit mobility and affect quality of life.
