Oh ok Pramodya for all your advice,
..osteoarthritis is a degenerative process of the musculoskeletal system (tendons, ligaments, cartilage, connective tissue) caused by decades of nutrient-poor diet...
Mmmm not so sure I would completely qualify for that, seems to be more like this.."With a moderate grade II sprain, the knee ligament tears partially. Swelling and bruising are common, and the use of the joint is usually painful and difficult." But who knows really.
..osteoarthritis is often misused for other disorders (such as consequences of accidents..
Still uncertain is the cause a knee sprain or an underlying disorder like arthritis?
..joints that have undergone change because of an accident, are extra sensitive for the development of Arthrosis."..
Could be that category indeed.
...If the damage is caused through injury, then apparently you don't suffer from Arthrosis...
So I have to find an orthopedic specialist to further the diagnosis, correct?
..If the tissue is degenerated..
Need to consult an orthopedic doctor for this also?
Arthritis is a different disease and is caused by auto-immun failure. This manifests itself in inflammation of the joints.
I guess needs further investigation as to exact cause.
There are no known remedies to osteoarthritis.
Diagnosis might be off, but noted.
One puzzling thing is that from what I've read it normally takes only a few week's for 'a sprain' to heal, so in the case that it's months the implication is it's more than a sprain? Is it the case normally you see a orthopedic doctor for diagnosis and then a sports physician for rehab?
