Traumatic arthritis is a condition that occurs due to an injury, physical trauma such as wound or excessive movement. One of the major causes of Traumatic arthritis is sports injuries. The symptoms include pain, forming of fluid around the joint and inflammation. Traumatic arthritis is developed when articular cartilage is damaged due to an injury or accident and causes swelling and pain around the joint and strict normal mobility.
The causes of Traumatic arthritis are
- Sports injuries
- Blunt force trauma
All these damage the articular cartilage and develop pain, swelling and tenderness. The joints experience stiffness, unsteady and their mobility is reduced. Sometimes bleeding may occur inside the joint and joint will not be able to tolerate any type of weight.
Traumatic arthritis is diagnosed by some tests such as blood tests, MRI, CT scan, and X-rays. These tests show the level of damage and inflammation in the affected joint. Treatment options include medications, exercise, and surgery. Medication includes anti-inflammatory drugs and cortisone injections. Anti-inflammatory drugs help to reduce the pain and inflammation caused by Traumatic arthritis. Cortisone injections are used when a person suffered with conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, and tendonitis. Exercise provides many benefits such as fitness, firming and strengthening of muscles, tendons and bones and improved health. Surgery is the last option, if none of these methods are effective for treatment. Surgery includes joint replacement, joint reconstruction or elimination of damaged cartilage.
If a person is suffered with traumatic arthritis, it is recommended to visit doctor as soon as possible. Any kind of delay may develop other severe problems. All the treatment options only minimize the problem effect as it is not possible to cure them completely.
