treat. and prognosis

Treatment varies according to the nature and severity of the spinal curvature, the age of onset, and the underlying cause of the disorder. Lordosis, Kyphosis, Scoliosis
Treatment includes bed rest, parenterally administered antibiotics often suffice, surgical drainage, and immobilization of affected part. Osteomyelitis
Treatment includes immobilization, open or closed reduction, analgesics, or muscle relaxants. Fractures
Treatment may include physical therapy, exercise, back braces, metal rods, and analgesics. Lordosis, Kyphosis, Scoliosis
Healing generally occurs within 2 to 4 weeks Sprains and Strains
Chronic form has a poor prognosis. Usually suffer a fair amount of pain and require lengthy hospitalization. Osteomyelitis
Treatment includes immediate elevation and resting the injured part, cold compresses,immobilization, analgesics, and possibly surgical repair. Sprains and Strains
Prognosis depends on severity and age of the individual. Complications may include embolism, infection, delayed union or nonunion, and resulting from immobilization. Fractures
Prognosis depends on the underlying cause of the particular disease, how early it is detected, and whether it responds to treatment. Lordosis, Kyphosis, and Scoliosis
Congestive heart failure and other cardiopulmonary difficulties may arise as complications of spinal deformities. Lordosis, Kyphosis, and Scoliosis
No known treatment is successful. Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy
Prognosis is cariable. Half of affected recover within 5 years and can discontiue therapy. Generally, the prognosis worsens with age. Polymyositis
Treatment is symptomatic and supportive; anticholinesterase drugs are effective against fatigue and muscle weakness but become less progressive as disease progresses. Myasthenia Gravis
Generally unpredictable and progressive with some degree of consequent deformity that requires lifelong treatment. Rheumatoid Arthritis
High dose of corticosteroid drugs, Cytotoxic drugs, bed rest, physiotherapy, and physical rehabilitation. Polymyositis
Orthopedic appliances, exercise, physical therapy, and surgery are procedures to correct or preserve this disease. Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy
Primary objectives are to reduce inflammation and pain, preserve joint function, and prebvent joint deformit. Rest, salicylates, physical therapy, and surgical repair may also be necessary. Rheumatoid Arthritis
Prognosis is poor for a child. Usually confined to a wheelchair by the ages of 9-12. Within 10-15 years of onset, death occurs. Duchenne's Muscular Dystrophy
Usually lifelong condition with periodic remissions, exacerbations, and day to day fluctuations. Myasthenia Gravis
