In the present saturated lifestyle it is very important to take care of their health. Sometimes people deliberately ignore health problems, but in most cases are due to certain circumstances or a lack of vital substances in the body.
Due to the natural characteristics of the organism in women much more often diagnosed with the disease of bone and tissue structures. One of the most common problems today is arthritis
Arthritis - a variety of forms and complications
. The appearance of arthritis can cause genetic factors or biological nature, as well as hormonal disruptions in the body. Unfortunately, many women have excessive completeness and overweight can be identified as another, the fourth factor of the disease.
Women are often diagnosed with osteoarthritis as a form of arthritis, which often affects males. Women make up 60% of the total number of patients suffering from this disease, and men often reveal it to 55 years, but after the 55-minute osteoarthritis occurs mainly in women.
Men and women affected by illness joint structure looks different. In most men arthritis affects hips, whereas in women more susceptible to disease hands and knees.
What are the main causes of arthritis of the knee?
The body and the body of a woman by nature intended for procreation, so the tendon on the bottom of the body of women have a more flexible structure than similar tendon in men. By virtue of natural causes in women joints more and more often on the move, and there is nothing surprising in the fact that the unstable position of the joints provoke more frequent injuries and damage.
Anatomically, the female pelvis is wider than your knees, joints so they are not as direct as that of men.
In general, women's bodies are more prone to joint injuries, which later provoked the appearance of osteoarthritis in women. For example, in women, the risk of playing football to make a knee injury several times higher than that of male football players.
The genetic characteristics of the female body are another cause of arthritis. If the mother is suffering from this disease, most likely in time the disease is diagnosed and her daughter. Numerous studies have shown that appearance osteortrita definitely has a genetic underpinnings.
Cartilage, which is located between the joints, is some kind of cushion between the bones. It alleviates pain and ensures the proper movement of the joints. Hormonal especially, of course, affect the condition of cartilage and bone structure of the female body. The hormone estrogen prevents inflammation in the cartilage, and the inflammation itself often provokes the appearance of osteoarthritis. However, in cases lowering estrogen
Estrogen - the key to bone health
in the body, for example, menopause or after caesarean section, lost cartilage protective barrier, and the risk of osteoarthritis increases significantly. This can occur during the passage of hormone replacement therapy.
Women who have sexual maturation
Puberty child - stages of a complex path
come in a pretty early age, mothers with many children and women receiving hormone replacement therapy significantly more at risk of knee replacement or hip in the future.
Pregnancy and childbirth
Waiting for child labors and another factor provoking the development of osteoarthritis. Research has proven that just during pregnancy and childbirth the risk of the first signs of the disease increases significantly.
Hormone replacement therapy and oral contraceptives
Contraceptive drugs themselves can not be classified as a risk factor for osteoarthritis, but the consequence of courses of hormone replacement therapy, according to experts, can become operative knee replacement. In 58% of cases the cause of joint replacement is just the passage of the aforementioned therapeutic courses.
Completeness and overweight
Over the fullness of a very negative impact on the health of the woman. If excessive weight load on the joints significantly increased, which leads to faster erase cartilage appear pain in the knee joints and eventually developing osteoarthritis.
A predisposition to osteoarthritis in women is quite natural in a sense is the price assigned to the nature of the right to be a woman. However, osteoarthritis can be controlled, there are many techniques to facilitate the patient's condition, and in certain cases to avoid the appearance of the disease at all.
