Join Life

Painless joint is freedom of movement.

Stagnant life can lead to unexpected problems such as vascular diseases, internal organ failures, and stroke.

The articular surface is smooth. Friction erodes the joint.

Five main conditions can be put forward for the Working of the Joint.


-Surface Compatibility




The joint moves with the sliding cartilage surfaces. Injury on these surfaces, factors that disrupt the surface also disrupt the opposite side throughout the movement. Over time, both surfaces begin to erode each other. A groove of the width of the injury at a small point is revealed, the articular cartilage quickly disappears. Joints work in harmony with ball-socket, hinge structure. The axis of both surfaces should be the same, the covering areas should be the same.

It carries our joints by distributing the weight of our body over large surfaces. Our weight is the strength of the joint that creates movement. With our joints, gravity is directed and the force of displacement is met.

Harmonious joint surfaces should hold together in a balanced way. Joint ligaments complete the joint and provide balanced movement. (Compatible Joint)

The joint also acts as a link. The main body is attached to the limbs. It is very important to have a balanced weight transfer and equal distribution to the joint surface, this is only possible with a good alignment. Even if a person with crooked legs has a compatible joint, bad alignment disrupts the harmony, causes different loads on the surface, injures the cartilage and wears the joint.

Balanced load distribution is not just about sequencing. Our muscles balance the speed of the belt by meeting each other while opening and closing the joint. If this balance is not achieved, we cannot stand and injure the joint.

The strength of the joint cartilage tissue depends on the buoyancy of the water it contains. If the water decreases, the strength and flexibility is lost, the tissue breaks down.

Healthy joint tissue should hold a high rate of water in the cartilage bed. This rate is higher in young people. With aging, the rate of water in the cartilage bed decreases, and structures that hold less water take place in the tissue, and the joint tissue tends to break down by losing water. This situation can be prevented with treatment.

Joint Cell Does Not Regenerate

In case of injury to the joint surface, it is repaired immediately. Our body's repair ability is limited to 1mm, larger injuries;

• If it creates friction on the surface

• If the healing process risks damaging the counter surface

• If it has resulted or will result in a poor healing, it must be treated arthroscopically.

We Can Protect Our Joint Health

Our joints get stronger and stronger as we move. A balanced diet rich in protein and regular exercises are beneficial. Excessive weight gain should be avoided. Sprained tarsi loading on the joint may be caused by weakness of muscle strength. Exercises to increase muscle strength should be done. The type of exercise should be appropriate for your level. It is inevitable that you will be injured while running on the treadmill if you have not walked on a straight track. If the items you use around you are in harmony (ergonomic) with you, it will reduce your risk of injury. Adapt your surroundings to yourself.

Joint Injury Can Be Repaired

Accurate diagnosis is possible with examination.

When you have a joint injury, you should see an Orthopedics and Traumatology specialist as soon as possible. Radiological examinations performed after the physician's examination determine the level of injury and treatment method. Once the type of injury is determined, the rate of self-repair is understood. Apart from severe injuries, splint-plaster fixations, bandages, therapeutic drugs, painkillers are used that will allow the body to repair itself. Arthroscopic treatment is the gold standard in severe injuries.

Joint immobility

During injury, recessive treatments may be aimed at restricting the movement of the joint. The inactivity of a healthy joint can lead to a decrease in joint slipperiness and muscle melting. Therefore, the treatment is arranged so as to act as early as possible. Devices that provide passive movement of the joint surface without weight can be very effective in treatment. We get help from rehabilitation specialists and therapists for these types of treatments. (Continued Passive Motion)

No matter how advanced and excellent the examination and radiological examinations are, Arthroscopy is the gold standard in the diagnosis of delayed joint injuries. Magnetic resonance imaging may be insufficient for cartilage lesions, plica tears and hardening. In this case, it is intervened before joint wear occurs. Meniscus tears and ligament ruptures can be treated with arthroscopic methods today with excellent results.

Correct intervention and stepwise approach are very important when there is a joint injury

Your joint may swell after injury, you will remain immobile and you cannot load. Do not panic, if you do not have a real health practitioner around you, a simple bandage, a temporary tesbt and a cold application is sufficient. Do not burden yourself with it, rest for a while and contact the health center as soon as possible.

Will the treatment affect your daily life and work life?

Every person's daily life expectancy and business life differ. The physician's decision may vary from recessive treatments to arthroscopic surgical treatments while determining the rest and recovery time.

Remember, your joints are the most important part of your life.

Help may be needed to regain mobility after treatment

We should definitely get physiotherapy help in arthroscopic treatments and long angle determinations performed after severe injuries.
