Some BODY Special: Orthopedic Advances, Head to Toe

When it comes to correcting common bone and joint problems, todays leading-edge options can mean greater function, faster for patients.1. Knee and Hip:Partial or total joint replacement can make life more comfortable for people experiencing disability due to arthritis and other adult orthopedic problems. Hip and knee replacement surgeries may be performed traditionally or using minimally invasive procedures, given the individuals needs and preferences. In either case, a portion of the problem joint is removed and an artificial joint (prosthesis) attached using cement or a special material that permits the remaining bone to attach to the new joint. 2. SpineMajor advances have been made in treatment of lumbar (back) and cervical (neck) spine problems. One is the X-Stop spacer to relieve the pain of lumbar spinal stenosis. Implanted during a minimally invasive procedure, the X-Stop lifts the vertebra off the pinched nerve causing the pain. No screws or other hardware are required, and no fusion is needed. 3. ShoulderThe rotator cuff is the muscle-and-tendon network at the top of the upper arm bone that allows the arm to rotate. When it is torn either through a traumatic incident or decades of wear and tear surgery is often the best solution. Arthroscopic repair is performed through small incisions using a fiberoptic scope, instruments about the size of a pencil and a video monitor. Mini-open repair enables surgeons to perform a complete rotator cuff surgery through a tiny incision just 4 to 6 cm long. Open surgical repair may be necessary in complex tears or if reconstruction is necessary. 4. Wrist and handCarpal tunnel syndrome refers to a persistent numbness or tingling sensation in ones thumb, index and middle fingers, and half the ring finger. It starts when the median nerve becomes compressed where it transitions from the forearm into the hand. Treatment generally begins conservatively, with physical therapy, splinting, medications and cortisone injections. Should surgery be required, two outpatient procedures one an open incision through the palm, the other an endoscopic procedure very close to the wrist creases. In both, the objective is to release the transversal carpal ligament.Ed Note: by Deborah Rue, RN, BS, Avista Joint and Spine Care Center CoordinatorTO LEARN MOREFree, informational sessions on joint pain management, joint replacement and advanced spine procedures are held regularly at Avista Adventist Hospital. To learn more, call 303-673-1000 or visit avistahospital.org.

Senior Fall Prevention

Homewatch CareGivers Helps to Prevent Falls Among SeniorsYouve decided its best that your senior loved one spend his or her golden years living at home, where they feel safe in their own familiar atmosphere. Although ones long-time home can provide comfort and happy memories, it might need some simple updates to reduce the potential for injuries.According to the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, falling is the leading cause of death and injuries among adults over the age of 65. More than one-third of all seniors (or about 11 million people) fall each year, resulting in almost 12,000 deaths. Fall survivors lose their mobility in 50% of falling cases, and 40% permanently lose the ability to live independently.At Homewatch CareGivers, our caregivers can spot the most common fall risks that could endanger your elderly loved one. These include floor clutter, pets underfoot, slippery bathroom tiles, and more.If these facts alarm you, its time to take action. Check for problems you might not otherwise notice, such as:Dimly lit rooms and hallways: Make sure all rooms are well lit, as vision can worsen with age, chronic conditions or other factors. Change any dim lightbulbs to higher-watt bulbs. For nighttime, provide a nightlight or a touch-light on the nightstand near the bed.Cluttered floors: Your loved one may shuffle or not pick up their feet when they walk, resulting in falling if their foot catches an object on the floor. Move any extension cords out of the way, or any other clutter.Slick floors: The majority of falls in the home happen in the bathroom. If your senior has a standard bathtub that is very low to the ground, and no assistance to get in or out, install non-slip strips or a bathmat. Add grab bars and a shower bench in the shower stall. Make sure there is a non-slip carpet mat near the toilet and bathtub and that towels are low and easily accessible.Learn more about bathroom hazards to watch out for by clicking here! or call 303-625-9365 to talk with an expert.
