New research has found that general chronic pain affects more than four in 10 people. Here, few experts provide advice on how to ease joint pain becoming worse during winter as well as what to avoid.

Discussion The hands are one of the most important parts of the body for interacting with the world. They are remarkably adapted having sensitive sensory receptors as well as feedback receptors for grasping, holding, and manipulating objects. Hands, especially with an opposable thumb, multiple joints within the hand, along with the wrist and elbow, allow the hand to move in multiple positions to manipulate the world. Hands also symbolize an emotional caring and sharing between individuals as hands are used to provide a true “human touch” in personal and social situations. Due to their important interactions in ...

Lupus. 2021 Dec 3:9612033211061062. doi: 10.1177/09612033211061062. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBACKGROUND: Cognitive impairment (CI) is one of the most frequent neuropsychiatric manifestations of systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Given that extensive neuropsychological testing is not always feasible in routine clinical practice, brief cognitive screening tools are desirable. The aim of this study was to evaluate the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) as a screening tool for CI in SLE.METHODS: Consecutive SLE patients followed at a single centre were evaluated using MoCA and an extensive neuropsychological test batte...

Exp Mol Med. 2021 Nov 30. doi: 10.1038/s12276-021-00710-y. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTOsteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. It is characterized by progressive destruction of articular cartilage and the development of chronic pain and constitutes a considerable socioeconomic burden. Currently, pharmacological treatments mostly aim to relieve the OA symptoms associated with inflammation and pain. However, with increasing understanding of OA pathology, several potential therapeutic targets have been identified, enabling the development of disease-modifying OA drugs (DMOADs). By targeting inflammatory cy...

Yoo Yoon Kim Septic ankle arthritis is a devastating clinical entity with high risks of morbidity and mortality. Prompt treatment is necessary because delayed or inadequate treatment can lead to irreversible damage that may occur on the articular surface, resulting in cartilage erosion, infective synovitis, osteomyelitis, joint deformity, and pain and joint dysfunction. An aggressive surgical approach is required when a joint infection causes severe limb-threatening arthritis. A 58-year-old woman visited our clinic with increasing pain in the right ankle, which had been present for the previous 2 months. She ...

OSTEOMYELITIS IN CHILDREN: Osteomyelitis (OM) is defined as an infection of the bone marrow and adjacent osseous structures with potential surrounding soft tissue extent. It can occur at any age, generally in children 1 –16 years old. In children, it is predominantly caused by hematogenous spread of infection, typically bacterial. Generally, the metaphysis is involved. Transphyseal spread to the epiphysis and joint is rare but can occur in children younger than 18 months, or in older children with closed growth p lates, due to a different blood perfusion to the epiphysis. The first imaging modality of choice is conve...

Proximal row carpectomy (PRC) is a long-time, well-accepted, easy-to-reproduce procedure for the treatment of several painful degenerative conditions of the wrist, when capitate pole and radius lunate fossa are preserved. It has been reported to relieve pain and preserve a substantial wrist range of motion, although a partial loss of strength has to be expected because of the decreased length of the carpus. Since 2010, a new technique has been described in the literature using the resurfacing capitate pyrocarbon implant, combined with PRC. This implant has been designed to perform PRC even in the presence of degenerate joi...
