The main cause of hyperosteogeny is related to the degenerative lesions of articular cartilage. The hyperosteogeny of lumbar spine is because after middle age, with the increase of age, the physiological functions of various tissues and cells of the body gradually decline and age, the degenerated intervertebral disc gradually loses water, the intervertebral space narrows, the fibrous ring looses and bulges to the periphery, the vertebral body is unstable, and the fibrous ring tears outside the edge of the vertebral body, Cause the protrusion of nucleus pulposus, push up the periosteum of the posterior longitudinal ligament, and produce new bone under it, forming bone spur or hyperosteogeny.
Hyperosteogeny is also called osteoarthritis, degenerative arthritis and so on. It is secondary hyperosteogeny caused by bone destruction, resulting in joint deformation. Joint pain caused by abnormal load mostly occurs in middle-aged and elderly people. What are the symptoms of hyperosteogeny? Let’s give you a brief introduction.
What are the clinical symptoms of hyperosteogeny
1,Symptoms of knee hyperosteogeny
Clinical manifestations: Patients with slow onset in the initial stage have no serious knee pain and sustainable hidden pain. The pain increases when the temperature decreases, which is related to climate change. Start activities after getting up in the morning. When walking for a long time, exercising violently or standing up for a long time, the knee joint is painful and stiff at the beginning of walking. It gets better after a little activity.
It is difficult to go upstairs and downstairs. When going downstairs, the knee joint is soft and easy to fall. When squatting, it is painful and stiff. In severe cases, the joints are sore, swollen and lame. In patients with rheumatism, the joints are red and swollen, deformed, limited function and bouncing sound in extension and flexion activities. Joint effusion can be seen in some patients, with obvious swelling and compression in some parts.
2,Symptoms of lumbar hyperosteogeny
Clinical manifestations: waist 3 and waist 4 are the most common prone sites. Clinically, there are often pain, swelling, stiffness and fatigue of lumbar spine and lumbar soft tissue, and even limited bending. If the adjacent nerve is compressed, it can cause corresponding symptoms, such as local pain, stiffness, posterior neuralgia, numbness, etc. If the sciatic nerve is compressed, it can cause sciatic neuritis, resulting in severe numbness, burning, pumping, string pain and radiation to the whole lower limb.
3,Symptoms of cervical hyperosteogeny
Clinical manifestations: strong feeling in the neck, limited activity, bouncing noise in neck activity, pain often radiates to the shoulders and upper limbs, numbness and electric shock like feeling in hands and fingers, which can be aggravated by neck activity. Different lesions involve different parts, there are different symptoms, and paralysis can be caused in the late stage. Severe cervical hyperosteogeny can also cause cervical spondylotic hypertension, cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, gastritis, angina pectoris, dysphagia and so on.
Hyperosteogeny is a common orthopedic disease, which seriously threatens people’s health. Therefore, the majority of friends should pay attention to the prevention of hyperosteogeny as soon as possible to avoid hyperosteogeny.
