Any Disease Of Cartilage Is Known As
Joints...: Cartilage is the smooth substance lining most joints. Some disorders are hereditary, involving production and structure of the cartilage. Much more common are problems like osteoarthritis - a degeneration of the cartilage due to wear and tear, obesity, etc. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease and also can affect cartilage.
Cartilage is a specialized type of tissue found in joints and areas that two bones come together. It is made up of specialized cells that live in the midst of proteins and sugars that absorb and release water similar to a sponge. Healthy cartilage helps decrease friction in joints, absorbs shock and protects the ends of the bone. Degradation of ...Read more

Not yet: While it is possible to grow cartilage that has the gross appearance of articular cartilage, the regenerative cartilage does not have the same microscopic architecture or mechanical properties as native articular cartilage. Even so, some patients benefit clinically from currently available treatment with a procedure known as autologous cartilage implantation.See 1 more doctor answer
Since I got my injury (multi disc disease and cut in shoulder cartilage)due to heavy lifting, im facing severe depression as I can no longer go to gym?
Always a way to Gym: I understand that you feel you can't work out anymore. But that's probably not true. There's always some little bit you can do. Find a trainer who is well versed in working with injured or recently surgerized patients and they will slowly bring you back. You'll see. Not as bad as you think. If you want to get back to the gym...believe me you can. Just make the necessary modifications and slow.
Knee pain mostly at night or at rest. 1 leg, had surgery 30 + years ago to repair cartilage, overweight with thorid disease. Limping during the day.
You need: A rotal, knee replacement after you lose some weight
I have had a cartilage infection for well over 6 months now with drainage, I've been to ER, family dr, med center & infectious disease dr can't get?
Infection: Cartillagenous tissues are difficult places in which to clear infections because they are avascular (no blood supply) and antibiotics do not get in well. You did not say where this was located, but you are seeing the proper specialists. Perhaps they need to consider surgical excision of the area involved (if this is possible). Good luck and hope this resolves soon.See 1 more doctor answer

Depends: If you are talking about a localized cartilage problem such as in a knee or shoulder...Or a inherited condition or developmental condition which affects cartolilage throughout our body. Xrays can give you a good sense of the overall condition of the joint surfaces. However, a focal cartilage injury is best picked up with a mri.See 1 more doctor answer
See below: Cartilage is a soft tissue that surrounds the ends of some bones and forms both sides of a joint. When it is healthy, cartilage surfaces glide smoothly over each other. When it is not, a scrubbing sometimes painful motion can occur. Cartilage disorders can be arthritic, posttraumatic, or inflammatory among other causes.
I think they: They work hard, eat right, do not have many sport inyurjies.
Maybe I worry too much, but I want to know how cartilage disorders will affect my child's overall health.?
Llet me help: Injured, inflamed or damaged cartilage can cause symptoms such as pain and limited movement. It can also lead to joint damage and deformity. Causes of cartilage problems include tears and injuries, such as sports injuries, genetic factors other disorders, such as some types of arthritis.So you see some stuff you help with and some you have no control at.
Chondroma: For themost part chondromas are benign. However the position of the lesion which usually results from excess stimulation of growth hormone is important. The more peripheral the lesion is in terms of centricity, the chance is that the tumor will not have an aggressive behavior. If the lesion occurs around the pelvic girdle rather than distal extremity, it can behave aggressively.
Sorry - but there is: No evidence to suggest that this is the case. Shark cartilage can endanger health as it usually contains high levels of mercury and other dangerous chemicals.
Perhaps?: But I am not aware of any indication or benefit. With the worlds shark population down 90%, it wouldn't be high on my list of complementary or alternative therapies and only if I were sure it would be saving my life of markedly improving my daily life or comfort. Reconsider!See 1 more doctor answer
Cell numbers: Young cartilage has more cells per volume. The cells make and support the surrounding material (extracellular matrix) that is key for overall cartilage function. They have the ability to make this extracellular matrix more robustly. There are interesting additional findings in the work by isto (st. Louis company). We presented data on our multicenter juvenile cartilage trial at aana april 2013.
Social Status: Medicinal claims associated with shark fin (cartilage) have not been scientifically substantiated at this time. There is a health risk in ingesting shark fins. It is a predator fish with of high levels of bmaa (neurotoxin), arsenic & methylmercury. Because shark fin is very expensive, eating it is considered a status symbol for some asians.See 1 more doctor answer
