尽早治疗骨质疏松,预防跌倒髋部骨折!

Written by Jing Yan on . Posted in Blog / News

什么是骨质疏松症?

骨质疏松症(osteoporosis)是骨质疏松症是骨量减少、骨质量退化,骨微结构破坏,造成骨脆性增加,从而容易发生骨折的全身性骨病。

骨质疏松症被称为“隐形杀手”,因其早期很难发现症状。患者通常在骨折或多次骨折后才确诊患病,患者生活质量受到极大影响并导致不可逆的伤残。

骨质疏松症最常见的骨折部位为椎体、髋部和腕部。其中,髋部骨折是最严重的骨质疏松性骨折,有可能导致患者出院后生活不能自理、短期内再次发生骨折甚至死亡。

骨质疏松症可影响50岁以上的三分之一的女性和五分之一的男性。随着年龄的增长,这类风险只会不断地增加!

Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair – Latest Treatment Strategies

Written by Jing Yan on . Posted in Blog / News

Dr Andy Wee shared the latest trends in arthroscopic meniscus repair during the APAC Sports Medicine, All-Inside Meniscal Expert Forum on 9 Nov 2021.

The meniscus is a soft tissue structure within the knee joint that helps in shock absorption and load transmission. A damaged or torn meniscus, commonly a result of sports or traumatic injury, can give rise to knee pain, swelling and locking.

In the long run, it can also result in knee degeneration. Hence there is a growing impetus amongst orthopaedic surgeons to repair and preserve the meniscus as much as possible, whenever they treat patients with meniscus tears.

Dr Andy Wee shared the latest trends in arthroscopic meniscus repair during the APAC Sports Medicine, All-Inside Meniscal Expert Forum on 9 Nov 2021.

Is it bad to have flat feet? – Dr Tay Guan Tzu

Written by Jing Yan on . Posted in Blog / News

People with flat feet or pes planus have arches on the inside of their feet that are lowered or flattened out, causing the entire soles of their feet to touch the ground when standing.

Often you may come across people with flat feet who do not face any problems and need no treatment. However, some may get tired or aching feet after prolonged periods of standing or walking.

Having flat feet may strain your muscles, ligaments and joints, which may cause pain in your feet, legs, hips and back with activities like standing or walking.
