Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA): Causes, Symptoms & Complications

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the joints and other parts of the body. As the
disease progresses, the inflammation spreads to the tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bones of the
joints. Rheumatoid arthritis can also affect other areas of the body, such as the lungs or blood vessels.
The premier treatment facility for RA is at Germanten Hospital in Hyderabad under the supervision of

Dr.Mir Jawad Zar Khan. The latest diagnosing equipment and treatment options are available at this super
specialty clinic for treatment of RA.

About 1% of the population of India suffers from rheumatoid arthritis. The risk of developing this
disease is almost three times higher in women than in men. Although the disease can occur at any age,
it mainly affects people less than 50 years old.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a serious and life-threatening disease that can cause severe disability that can
affect not only the quality of life but also life expectancy. Fortunately, the new medical strategies
developed in the last two decades have significantly improved the life, longevity, and condition of many
people with rheumatoid arthritis. Currently, there is no way to cure rheumatoid arthritis.

Causes

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease. The immune system no longer recognizes its own tissue
and reacts as if it were in the presence of a foreign body. This misidentification causes the immune
system to attack tissues and joints and cause long-term damage.

Currently, no one can predict if a person will suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. It is thought that
rheumatoid arthritis is caused by several factors, some of which are genetic and other environmental
factors (for example, a viral or bacterial infection). Dr. Mir Jawad Zar Khan provides the finest treatment
of this ailment and has researched into it at length during his years of work in India and abroad.

Symptoms and complications

Rheumatoid arthritis can be sudden and painful gradually or without warning. The first signs of the
disease are often similar to flu symptoms, including pain in all muscles and joints. Pain and stiffness tend
to be more intense in the morning at dawn or after a period of inactivity. These stiffnesses may last less
than an hour, but over time, the symptoms may last for several hours.

In general, rheumatoid arthritis first affects the hands, wrists, and feet and then extends to the elbows,
shoulders, hips, knees, and ankles, and to the neck and jaw. Due to chronic inflammation, the joints
deform as their internal tissue is destroyed. In almost 30% of people, the disease is associated with
subcutaneous nodules or dents in bony regions such as the elbows and knees. Tears and salivary glands
can also be affected, resulting in dry eyes and mouth. Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease of the whole
body and can affect the heart, lungs, and eyes.

What distinguishes rheumatoid arthritis from other types of arthritis is the usual symmetry of its
distribution. Most other forms of arthritis do not have this characteristic. Symmetry means that when a

joint on one side of the body has it, the corresponding joint on the other side of the body is affected in a
relatively short time -a few days, a few weeks, a month or two. In addition, rheumatoid arthritis
accelerates and aggravates arteriosclerosis. Therefore, the doctor could monitor risk factors such as high
blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. In addition, the doctor can advise you not to smoke. It is
very important to treat arteriosclerosis as quickly as possible.

The prevention of spread of RA is possible with early diagnosis. However, it is only the latest medical
facilities such as Germanten Hospital founded by Dr. Mir Jawad Zar Khan which can provide this type of
advanced care at an affordable cost.

Know About Cervical Spondylosis

Cervical spondylosis is an annoying condition that occurs when the vertebrae and the discs of the neck
may wear out. Sometimes the disease is asymptomatic, but in most cases, there is a pain of variable
proportion, from mild to more extensive, and can also affect the arms and legs. But what is cervical
spondylosis caused by? And what can be done to try to solve this situation? At Germanten Hospital of
Hyderabad, Dr. Mir Jawad Zar Khan provides best surgical and non-surgical interventions for cervical
spondylosis.

Cervical Spondylosis Causes

The cervical spondylosis can be from a long series of factors. Among the main ones are the previous
lesions, fractures, dislocations of the neck joints. However, a bad posture of the neck, the physical effort
concentrated on the head and shoulders can play an unfavorable role for the wellbeing of that area.

Symptoms

Usually, people suffering from cervical spondylosis experience more or less severe pain in the neck area.
However, it is not at all said that cervical spondylosis must necessarily accompany a sensation of pain.
For example, it is possible that cervical spondylosis may also involve headaches, which usually start at
the back of the head then spread to the forehead.

Care

Usually to treat cervical spondylosis surgery is not used, with such interventions that are therefore
reserved only for hypotheses in which the spondylosis can degenerate into a more severe pathology,
such as cervical radiculopathy or progressive myelopathy. Even in the case of cervical myelopathy
surgery is not always necessary, because if the symptoms are mild and the pain does not progress, you
can try just to keep everything under control. Any surgical intervention is therefore shared with your
doctor based on the amount of pain and any damage to the nervous system.

In the event that surgery is necessary, the techniques used are the anterior cervical discectomy, the
cervical laminectomy, the prosthetic replacement of the intervertebral disc as prescribed by Dr. Mir
Jawad Zar Khan.

Therapy

Beyond the surgery that, as we have seen, is a sort of last way to solve their problems, there are
numerous therapies to find the right relief. For example, an effective treatment is that of physiotherapy,
with gentle movements in the neck, in order to keep the neck in motion as much as possible, avoiding
the feeling of stiffness. These exercises can be performed several times a day, with movements in every
direction. In addition, your doctor may prescribe painkillers to counteract the pain: usually, paracetamol
is enough to keep the discomfort at bay.

Other suggestions to adequately cope with cervical spondylosis from Germanten Hospital are the search
for a good posture to be used in the workplace, avoid using more than one pillow during sleep and,
among others, even the use of a specific vegetable-based diet raw, lots of fruit and few fats, spicy foods,
fried foods, sugar, condiments, tea, coffee.

As you can see, if you want to know more about cervical spondylosis and the conditions associated with
it, it is advisable to discuss it with Dr. Mir Jawad Zar Khan of Germanten Hospital. He has vast
experience in the field of orthopedics and is a leading surgeon in India. Having earned advanced degrees
abroad, he has devoted his life to providing affordable and world-class care to patients in India.

KNOW ABOUT ACL INJURIES IN WOMEN

Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan Sir educated Most of his joint pain patients and Athletes, Saying that “ The slightest mention of an ACL tear strikes fear in the hearts of even the toughest athletes, and for a good reason. The career-ending injury occurs in 1 of every 3,000 individuals each year, and it has been reported to occur upwards of 9 times more often in women than men. “

Further, he said that “ ACL injuries are more common in females than males, but why exactly is that the case?

Anatomy :

Not surprisingly, female anatomy has been called into question as the culprit of increased rates of knee injuries. Women have a wider pelvis, which causes the femur to descend at a much sharper angle inwardly than men. Medically, the angle of the femur is called the “Q- angle”, and a greater Q-angle can give what is often known as a knock-knee appearance. This alignment of the female femur puts more pressure on the inside part of the knee, which is thought to contribute to ACL tears.

Besides the width of the pelvis, another contributing factor is an imbalance in the strength of female leg muscles. Women tend to have stronger quadriceps muscles (located in the front of the thigh), and relatively weaker hamstring muscles (located in the back of the thigh). This imbalance causes additional stress to be placed on the ACL, leading to an increased risk of tear.

The construct of the ACL itself may be a cause of increased tears in women. Females generally have smaller ligaments compared to men, which makes even the smallest tears detrimental to their physicality. On top of that, women have more lax ligaments, meaning they have more give. This increased laxity allows for more joint mobility, which predisposes women to ACL tears.

Conditioning :

More recently the contribution of neuromuscular control and biomechanics as predisposing factors has been studied. To explain, researchers have looked at the way females jump, cut, land, and rotate during sporting events. Compared to men it was found that women tend to bend their knees less upon landing, meaning they allow their joints to take on most of the force of impact. Women also buckle their knees inward when landing and making cuts, which puts even more stress on the inside part of their knees. Furthermore, women’s feet flatten out upon impact which adds to the mounting stress on their ACLs.

Is surgery always necessary after an ACL tear?

Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan Sir Said at GERMANTEN HOSPITAL as Not necessarily. The decision to repair an ACL tear with surgery should factor in age, current activity level and desired activity level. Women who are older and/or don’t participate in many high-intensity sport or leisure activities might get good results from physical therapy alone. Meanwhile, women who play sports or have knee-straining jobs or hobbies, such as dancing, may benefit from surgery to recover as much function as possible and continue their active lifestyle. A sports medicine specialist can help decide which option is best.

What can female athletes do to prevent ACL tears?

Sports injuries are always a possibility, even if you do everything right. But there are steps you can take to minimize risk factors related to your technique, training and lifestyle. The following recommendations are all equally important in preventing ACL tears and other sports injuries:

Practice good technique.
While not a guarantee, proper technique when training and playing a sport can help ward off sports injuries. Work with your coach and/or your sports physical therapist to identify improper form and correct it.

Avoid working out while overly fatigued.
When youre tired, its easier to make mistakes or forget about good technique. Getting enough sleep and stopping a workout before exhaustion sets in help to prevent injury.

Work to develop muscle groups evenly.
Core and extremity strength are equally important. Focusing on one while ignoring the other increases your risk of injury.

Create a balance between strength and flexibility.
Both tight and overstretched muscles are more prone to injury. Working on strength and flexibility in moderation is key.

Eat a balanced diet.
Poor nutrition leads to decreased strength, endurance, and attention. Eating well can help improve your focus and performance.

GROWING MENACE OF MORBID OBESITY

The morbid obesity of a most of the retired man has put the spotlight on a growing epidemic of unhealthy weight gain, a common feature among India’s adults.

Many Indian people , has been referred to Germanten Hospital Hyderabad for a knee replacement surgery, after another hospital had refused to treat him due to concerns of medical complications.

Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan Sir , a joint replacement surgeon designated as the treating physician, identified a larger lifestyle flaw as the bedridden patient used a CPAP breathing machine to compensate for his respiratory problems.

“Indian obesity was at the root of all their problems,” Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan Sir said. “People stopped walking, which led to the worsening of his health, and was the onset of depression.”

The combination of knee osteoarthritis and morbid obesity traps patients in a vicious cycle of bad health and lack of exercise, Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan Sir explained, as the knees suffer early damage and prevent the patient from exercising and losing weight.

Dr Mir Jawad Zar Khan Sir said the patient regained mobility following the successful knee replacement and lost several kilos of weight.

A study by the Indian Council of Medical Research–India Diabetes noted how the country’s growing affluence is transforming the health issues faced by citizens. “Under-nutrition due to poverty, which dominated in the past, is being rapidly replaced by obesity associated with affluence, resulting in an estimated 88 million individuals in the country who are overweight,” it said.

The study also said 135 million individuals have generalised obesity, 153 million with abdominal obesity and 107 million with combined obesity.

Germanten Hospital Hyderabad’s Endocrinologist Dr said the trend that afflicts all age groups reflects the changing nature of the Indian dietary preferences. The shrinking public space for exercise and recreation is a factor in the growing sedentary lifestyle of people, she added.
