Useful Information


osteoporosis : Osteoporosis is a disease of bone that leads to an increased risk of fracture. In osteoporosis the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced, bone microarchitecture is disrupted, and the amount and variety of non-collagenous proteins in bone is altered. Osteoporosis is defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) in women as a bone mineral density 2.5 standard deviations below peak bone mass (20-year-old healthy female average) as measured by DXA; the term "established osteoporosis" includes the presence of a fragility fracture.

osteoarthritis : Osteoarthritis (OA, also known as degenerative arthritis, degenerative joint disease), is a condition in which low-grade inflammation results in pain in the joints, caused by abnormal wearing of the cartilage that covers and acts as a cushion inside joints and destruction or decrease of synovial fluid that lubricates those joints. As the bone surfaces become less well protected by cartilage, the patient experiences pain upon weight bearing, including walking and standing.

arthritis :Arthritis is a group of conditions involving damage to the joints of the body. Arthritis is the leading cause of disability in people older than fifty-five years.

X-rays An X-ray (or Röntgen ray) is a form of electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength in the range of 10 to 0.01 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 PHz to 30 EHz. They are longer than Gamma rays but shorter than UV rays. X-rays are primarily used for diagnostic radiography and crystallography.

CT (computerised tomography) scans : this uses a tight beam of radiation to create a detailed picture of the inside of your spine area, similar to MRI. The radiation used in a CAT scan has associated risk, and exposes you to more radiation than ordinary X-Rays.  

MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) : this uses a powerful magnet and radio waves to create a detailed picture of the inside of your spine area, especially the soft tissue that does not show up on a normal X-Ray. It can help to show damage to various parts of your spine, such as the discs and ligaments. MRI is non-invasive and has no side-effects (although you have to be able to lie still in a possibly claustrophobic place for 30-60 minutes – ask for a sedative if you expect that to make you feel uncomfortable).

pulmonary function tests : Spirometry (meaning the measuring of breath) is the most common of the Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs), measuring lung function, specifically the measurement of the amount (volume) and/or speed (flow) of air that can be inhaled and exhaled. Spirometry is an important tool used for generating pneumotachograph to assessing conditions such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, and COPD.

sciatic nerve : The sciatic nerve (also known as the ischiatic nerve) is a large nerve that starts in the lower back and runs through the buttock and down the lower limb. It is the longest and largest single nerve in the body.
