183 Possible Causes for Joint Deformity, Limping Gait, Osteoarthritis

  • Septic Arthritis

    The outcome of properly treated bacterial arthritis in the elderly is generally favourable and at least 50% of patients may recover without developing secondary osteoarthritis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This condition requires prompt treatment aiming to avoid permanent damage to joint, which may result in chronic deformity or mechanical arthritis.[radiopaedia.org] Twenty patients with culture-proven bacterial arthritis had higher levels of synovial TNF-alpha than patients with osteoarthritis or with inflammatory arthritis, including[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Legg-Calve-Perthes Disease

    At the latest follow-up a strong increase in the number of cases with osteoarthritis was seen.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Clinical features include a limping gait and hip pain frequently radiating into the thigh, knees, groin, or buttocks. Pain is worse with activities.[bestpractice.bmj.com] Legg-Calvé-Perthes disease leads to hip joint deformity. Osteochondritis dissecans following Perthes disease (OCDP) is a less common entity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Arthritis

    Guidelines for the medical management of osteoarthritis. II. Osteoarthritis of the knee. Arthritis Rheum 1995 ;38: 1541 - 1546 4. Felson DT, Buckwalter J.[doi.org] For example, if you are limping, the way you limp can tell your doctor a lot about the severity and location of your arthritis.[orthoinfo.aaos.org] Surgery is advised to correct joint deformities and supportive treatments like physiotherapy is offered to obtain maximum movement benefit from the joint.[news-medical.net]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Knee

    KEYWORDS: Osteoarthritis; epidemiology; knee; laterality; plain radiograph[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other symptoms include swelling stiffness sometimes warmth and joint deformity.[orthop.washington.edu] Abstract The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons has developed Appropriate Use Criteria (AUC) for Surgical Management of Osteoarthritis of the Knee.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Osteoarthritis of the Hip

    The gait pattern over short distances and abductor strength are usually normal in the early stages of the disease.[plasticsurgerykey.com] […] limb osteoarthritis.[books.google.com] Diseases that can cause this condition include Padget's disease, joint injury, developmental deformities, osteochondritis, and many others.[hcpro.com]

  • Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis

    Femoroacetabular impingement is a mechanical hip abnormality that typically affects young populations and leads to hip pain and premature osteoarthritis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] In fact, most patients with SCFE are teenagers with knee or hip pain who subsequently exhibit an intermittent limping gait.[symptoma.com] Our observations support the emerging consensus that SCFE is a precursor of cam deformity, FAI, and joint degeneration.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Congenital Hip Dysplasia

    Abstract Major rim pathology is a precursor of osteoarthritis of the hip secondary to residual acetabular dysplasia.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The condition tends to worsen as the child grows and if not treated, may result in the child learning to walk with a limp or unusual waddling gait.[healthpoint.co.nz] Dysplasia is a Greek word for development deformation, in our case that of the hip joint.[doctor-kolesow.ru]

  • Ligament Tear

    CONCLUSIONS: A high prevalence of radiographic knee osteoarthritis was seen in male soccer players 14 years after an ACL disruption.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Crutches may be discontinued as soon as the patient has good muscle tone, motion and can walk without a limp.[bodybuilding.com] Signs of an emergency situation when you should seek care and doctor treatment can include: Bone or joint that is clearly deformed or broken Severe swelling and/or pain, Unsteady[sportsmd.com]

  • Gouty Arthritis

    Interestingly, osteoarthritis (OA) is now being conceptualized as a metabolic disease, as there is a correlation among hyperuricemia and metabolic syndrome (MetS).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Walking without the proper support or with a limp for even a short period of time due to the pain of gout can cause you to develop incorrect gait patterns and put excess strain[qualitycarept.com] Without treatment, joint deformation and limitation of movement can occur.[drlox.com]

  • Ankle Arthritis

    What Is Osteoarthritis? Osteoarthritis , or "wear-and-tear" arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis.[webmd.com] In these circumstances, a successful fusion is very reliable in providing long-term pain relief that results in a limp free gait and allows return to more physical work.[sportsmed.com.au] Ankle Joint Deformity Ankle Joint Arthritis is associated with joint deformity.[epainassist.com]
