Bone & Joint Centre

Bone & Joint Centre offers comprehensive and integrated orthopaedic (bone health) care.

Our body’s musculoskeletal structure is made up of muscles and bones, as well as the other connective tissues that join body tissue and organs together. This structure is vulnerable to injuries, repetitive motion stress, as well as wear and tear (aging) in the body. Conditions like back pain, arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome are very common among the population.

Bone and joint conditions should not be neglected, as they can affect:

  • daily physical activities
  • walking posture
  • quality of sleep
  • overall health and risk of chronic conditions

How to Prevent Bone & Joint Disease?

Bone & joint disease can be known as osteoarthritis (OA), it affects the bones and joints in our body. This disease occurs when the cartilage breaks down and causes swelling, pain, and mobility limitation.

The risk factors of bone & joint disease include:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Biological inheritance

Lifestyle factors play a big part in developing the disease. Certain changes in lifestyle are able to prevent the disease:

Exercise – Exercise helps to maintain healthy joints, relieves muscle stiffness, strengthening bone and muscle, and reducing muscle fatigue and pain

Eat right – People with osteoarthritis are most likely to have high cholesterol. Consuming vitamin A, C, and E may help to prevent further damage to the joints

Maintain weight – Being overweight will put extra pressure on joints and excess fat will cause inflammation on joints. Maintaining a healthy weight can help to prevent the symptoms of osteoarthritis

Posture – Walking, sitting, kneeling, and lifting with the wrong posture may harm your joints

Rest – Overuse of joints from any physical activities may develop osteoarthritis, let your joints rest to reduce the risk of osteoarthritis
