Pain in bones after Kovid? This is a symptom of this dangerous disease

Avascular necrosis is a disease in which bone tissue begins to die, due to which the bone starts to melt. This disease is also known as osteonecrosis.

After Covid , many people are facing pain in joints and bones . People are considering it as a common problem or symptom of arthritis, but it is not that in many cases patients are also suffering from avascular necrosis . Akhilesh Yadav, Senior Transplant Surgeon, Center for Knee and Hip Care, explains that avascular necrosis is a disease in which the bone tissue starts dying, due to which the body's bones start melting.

When the blood does not reach the bone tissue, then in such a situation this disease becomes a cause of danger. This disease can occur at any age, but usually people in the age group of 20-60 years are suffering from it. People who are already suffering from the disease of diabetes, HIV / AIDS, they are also at risk of getting the disease of necrosis.

Dr. Akhilesh explains that when a person's bone breaks or the pairs move from their place, then the blood does not reach the bones. This problem also occurs due to excessive consumption of alcohol. Gym-going youth consume steroids in supplements. This also damages the bones and they have to fall prey to this disease.

After Covid, the cases have increased a lot. The disease of avascular necrosis can occur in some people in the hips and joints. Timely treatment is necessary, otherwise this disease completely strangles the bones.

Symptoms of avascular necrosis

Joint pain when lifting weights or exercising

Pain in the hips can spread to the thighs, pelvis or buttocks

pain in arms and shoulders

foot and knee pain

Measures to prevent avascular necrosis

drink alcohol sparingly

keep cholesterol level low

don't use steroids

don't smoke

don't let the weight gain

Get regular health checkups

treatment of avascular necrosis

According to Dr Akhilesh, the treatment of avascular necrosis depends on the severity of the disease. Medicine and therapy are given in the beginning. Surgery is done when there is no relief from medication. For this core decompression is done. In this, the surgeon removes the inner layer of the bone. This not only gives relief in pain, but new bone tissue starts forming at that place.

Bone Transplant: In this procedure, the surgeon replaces the diseased bone with healthy bone. This bone can also be taken from any other part of the body.

Joint Replacement: In this, worn out joints are removed and replaced with plastic, metal or ceramic joints.
