Knee Osteoarthritis Part 2 Symptoms Evaluation
(light rock music intro) Welcome back to The Art of Medicine. The diagnosis of osteoarthritis depends on carefulanalysis of your condition. Let's take a look at the common symptoms and how we evaluate your pain. Symptoms for osteoarthritis are three. Pain, swelling and stiffness.
They can all either bepresent at the same time or you can see each one individually in different degrees. The pain can either bebecause of particles flaking off and irritatingthe lining of the joint or increased pressure within the bone. Similarly, the stiffness can be because of fluid inside thejoint or it can just be
because of increased pressure in the bone because of not havingas much cushion there. Osteoarthritis is nothingmore than wearing away that gristle on the end of the bone and instead of havingseven to 10 millimeters of tread, you may have threeto four millimeters of tread. And the swelling caneither be because of fluid, which is an irritation tothe lining of the joint,
or it can be just because of thickening of the lining of the joint, both of which will cause limited motion. The common symptoms with osteoarthritis are more functional. They're difficulty with walking, ascending or descending stairs, particularly descendingstairs where you put
more force across the kneecap area, kneeling, bending,squatting, where again you're loading and compressingthe joint at its extreme, and driving often times where you have to hold that knee in one particular spot. The symptoms of osteoarthritis often times are made worse any time the knee is held in one position orcompressed in one position
for an extended period of time. All of these decrease the amount of motion across the knee and decreasethe amount of lubrication. On physical exam forosteoarthritis we're really trying to evaluate the nature of thepain, swelling and stiffness. We are looking forseveral specific findings. We're looking to see whereyou're pain is located, if your knee is swollen,
Osteoarthritis vs rheumatoid arthritis symptoms
In talkingabout the different symptoms between osteoarthritisand rheumatoid arthritis, I think my obsession with colorcoding will really pay off so we'll have red for rheumatoid arthritis and green for osteoarthritis. We'll talk about allthe different symptoms but I want to make thisa logical discussion so thinking back to thecause of these two diseases
and why it is that theyare different in symptoms. In rheumatoid arthritis, it'salways going to be autoimmune so the body's attacking itself, it's a whole body kind of process whereas in osteoarthritis,we're dealing with overuse. Usually in elderly people orpeople carrying extra weight weighing down their joints. Okay, first, before thedifferences, let's just quickly
go over the commonalitiesand why it's important to distinguish thembecause people will come in complaining of the same things. Pain, number one, their joints hurt. Both of these can be painful, they can also involve stiffness. The quality and timingwith it will be different but they'll both tell youthat their joints feel stiff
and they can't use them well. So with that, they mightavoid using their limbs, might lead to muscular weakness. Weakness, loss of function, and this weakness and loss of function and inability to do thethings they like to do might actually have indirecteffects on their mood, for example, depression is common
because both of these are chronic diseases so depression, risk for heart disease and other things froma sedentary lifestyle are all things to consider. So the point of this is whenpatients come in and tell you, quot;my joints hurt,quot; make sureto not leave it at that and keep asking the questionsto distinguish the two. The first question you mightask is, quot;Where does it hurt,
quot;which jointséquot; And here a very important featurethat distinguishes the two is gonna be the fact thatin rheumatoid arthritis, we have symmetry between the left side and the right side of the body. For example, when a personwith RA comes in and tells you, quot;my shoulders hurt,quot; it'sgoing to be shoulders, left and right.
