There are many conditions that affect our body's musculoskeletal system, that require clinical care by a physician or other healthcare professional. Listed below are some of the orthopaedic disorders which are most commonly found: Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, and Scoliosis. Arthritis is defined as redness and swelling (inflammation) in the joints. A joint is where two or more bones joined together. Scoliosis a normal spine appears to be straight. But the spine affected by scoliosis has a lateral curvature that looks like an S or C shape. The spine can turn into S or C shaped structure. It gives the impression that the person is bent to the side. Scoliosis is a disease in which the spine curves more than 10 degrees. Scoliosis is not caused due to poor posture. As a result of scoliosis, lateral curvature of the spine can occur on the right, left, or both the sides of the spine. Scoliosis can also affect both the central (thoracic) and lower (lumbar) vertebrae.
