骨关节炎是什么?

骨关节炎是指关节软骨的异常变性,超过从身体修复的能力而导致炎症(“itis”意味着拉丁的炎症)。骨关节炎可以影响身体的所有关节,而膝关节是我们世界范围内最常受影响的关节,主要是因为我们的基因和生活方式的影响。

症状

症状包括疼痛(特别是在下楼梯时)、僵硬、畸形(弓腿或膝盖受伤)和丧失功能(无法完全弯曲、无法完全伸直并无法蹲下)。一旦膝盖变形,膝盖的异常姿势将加速关节软骨的损伤,导致进一步的畸形,从而进入进一步的破坏和畸形的恶性循环,导致难治性疼痛和严重丧失膝关节功能 。如果您患有这些症状,请访问新加坡的骨科医生。

评估

在HC骨科手术中,我们将了解病人的病历、照X光、进行MRI扫描和体格检查以充分评估膝关节疼痛的原因,并排除任何其他原因引起的膝关节疼痛,例如脊柱疼痛或臀部牵涉到的疼痛。
