Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are conditions that can affect muscles, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons. It can be any injury, damage or disorder of the joint, or other tissues in the upper/lower limbs or the back. Then Common symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders include pain, weakness, stiffness, joint noises, and decreased range of motion. he causes of musculoskeletal pain are varied. Inflammation may cause pain, swelling, warmth, tenderness, impaired function, and sometimes redness of the overlying skin. Inflammation can result from many different musculoskeletal disorders, such as autoimmune disorders (for example, rheumatoid arthritis) and infections.

Rheumatology is the practice of care and study of arthritis and other musculo-skeletal disorders affecting joints, bones, muscles and soft tissues. It includes inflammatory arthritis and other systemic autoimmune disorders which can affect multiple systems of the body, soft tissue conditions, and metabolic bone disease. It is concerned with development, diagnosis and treatment of auto-immune diseases that affect the joints, bones, muscles and connective tissue Rheumatic diseases are characterized by pain and inflammation in the joints and associated structures, and muscle soreness and stiffness. There are more than 100 different types of rheumatic disease conditions. Rheumatic diseases are complex and often difficult to diagnose and treat. They may be acute (i.e., have a rapid onset) or chronic (i.e., last a long time).

Arthritis is a medical condition associated with swelling and inflammation of the joints. It is a result of a breakdown in cartilage with inflammation. The cartilage protects joints and enables smooth movement by absorbing shock when pressure is placed on a joint. If it contains less than usual amount of cartilage, the bones rub together to cause pain, swelling (inflammation), and stiffness. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and osteoarthritis are the most common types, but there are many other forms.

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic, progressive and disabling disease where the immune system attacks the synovial lining to the joints and other organs. If RA is left undiagnosed , the joints can lose its shape and alignment, which leads to bone erosion and ultimately cause destruction of the joint and permanent disability. Rheumatoid Arthritis is also a systemic disease, which means it can affect internal organs of the body such as the heart, eyes and lungs. Rheumatoid arthritis has many physical and social factors and that can lower quality of life. It can cause pain, disability, and premature death.

Osteoporosis also called as porous bone is a disease characterized by low bone mass and structural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures of the hip, spine, and wrist. This Skeletal weakness leads to fractures with minor or inapparent trauma, particularly in the thoracic and spine, wrist, and hip. It is also called degenerative disease or degenerative arthritis. Prevention and treatment involve risk factor modification, calcium and vitamin D supplements, exercises to maximize bone and muscle strength and drug therapy to maintain bone mass or stimulate new bone formation.

Fracture is a medical condition referred to be damage in the continuity of the bone. The major causes of bone fracture high force impact or stress on bones. In certain cases, the fractures are caused due to some medical conditions and diseases which weakens the bones called as pathological fractures. The fracture includes many conditions where the bones may completely fracture or partially fractured or broken into pieces. Based on causes, signs and symptoms the bones fractures are variously divided into groups with their respective medical care and treatments.

Rheumatic diseases is a medical condition which cause inflammation that affects the connecting structures of the body most commonly the joints, in some cases it also affects the tendons, ligaments, bones, and muscles. Some rheumatic diseases even affect the organs. If tit is left undiagnosed these diseases can ultimately cause loss of function in those body parts. Rheumatic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, psoriatic arthritis, SLE , and gout occur when the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks organs, tissues, and joints. The resulting inflammatory process leads to thickening of the joints’ tissues, swelling, and pain.

Orthopedics Surgery is an operative procedure that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, rectification, counteractive action, of patients with skeletal deformities/disorders of the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles, and skin. The main goal of orthopedic surgery is to restore painless function and to maintain stability to the musculoskeletal system. Orthopedic Surgery involves a wide variety of procedures, from ACL reconstruction and meniscus repair to hip replacement, spinal fusion and more. It can also correct problems of the nervous system that linked to the spinal column, as well as musculoskeletal issues and congenital defects.

Arthroplasty is a surgical procedure that alters or completely replaces a joint in the body, usually to restore normal function and relieve pain in a malformed or diseased joint, such as the hip, knee, shoulder, elbow or ankle. Arthroplasty may also be required due to cartilage that wears out, limb/joint malalignment, joint space narrowing, a stiff joint, disease, or other degenerative or traumatic conditions. The procedure is used to treat damage from osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint injuries, osteonecrosis, and other joint damage from disease or injury.

Orthopedic implant is a medical device which is surgically placed into the body designed to restore function by replacing or reinforcing a damaged structure. Orthopedic implants such as plate, screws, and prostheses are used in spinal fusion surgery and fixation of fractured bone segments, as well as implant components that are used for hip and joint replacement. The material used in orthopedic implants must be biocompatible, wear resistance, corrosion proof. The major risks of medical implants include surgical risks which occurs during placement or removal, infection, and implant failure. Some people also have reactions to the materials which are used in implants.

Bone Infection is the process of invasion by causative agents which produce toxins, resulting in the illness of the biological system. Certainly, bones and joints are infected by the bacterial and fungal organisms which gets invaded through our skin, eyes, ears, mouth, nose and mucous membranes, which is called as septic arthritis. The infections that are caused by bacteria in bones are termed the Osteomyelitis. The diagnosis and treatment method varies from laboratory test to various internal view scans. The Intravenous antibiotics, vasopressor medications, insulin and corticosteroids are other therapies involved in the treatment against infections.

Pediatric rheumatology and orthopedics is an evaluation and treatment of musculoskeletal disease and immune dysfunction that affects infants, children, and teenagers. Bone and joint pain is not just limited to the older population. When a child is affected with autoimmune disease the immune system attacks healthy cells, and it leads to problems such as pain, muscle weakness, inflammation, rashes and can affect an organ or the entire body. The primary cause varies depending on the type of disease. There are certain factors that may play a part in one or more types of these diseases include: immune system, genes and family history, injury, infection etc.

Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is also known as physiatry, is a medical specialty aims to enhance and restore functional ability, quality of life to those with physical impairments disabilities, diseases which are affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. Regular physical activity reduces the likelihood of medical illness, decreases the incidence of the major causes of death, and improves the overall health and quality of life for patients with most medical conditions. By increasing muscle mass and strength and fostering cardiovascular endurance, exercise improves functional activity status for of daily living and protects against injury. Specific exercise programs are also commonly prescribed to rehabilitate patients after MI, major surgery, and musculoskeletal injury. Preoperative exercise regimens are prescribed before many elective surgical procedures to enhance postoperative recovery.
