Articulations (Joints)

Articulations (or joints) form the connections between bones. Damage to the joints from disease (e.g. arthritis) or injury can both impede mobility and cause severe pain. Knees, shoulders and hips are some of the most commonly affected articulations but joint pain can affect any part of your body. As you get older, painful joints become increasingly more likely. Treatment focuses on reducing pain and inflammation and preserving and/or improving joint function.

Rhea, Student, USA
22 years old

Condition: Knee injury

Two years previously Rhea had torn her medial meniscus. She had surgery twice and, after a period of rehabilitation, she started her travels. After a few weeks travelling she again injured her knee and was told by the specialist at the hospital that she had again torn her medial meniscus. Rhea was unable to walk without crutches and was in acute pain. On examination it was found that Rhea’s instability was actually being caused due to her hip position. Her injuries had also caused her to start developing a mild form of scoliosis in the lumbar spine. Once repositioning of the spine, hip and knee had been completed, Rhea was able to walk and rehabilitate fully.
