Periostitis

General Condition

What is Periostitis?

Periostitis is a condition in which the fibrous tissue that surrounds the bones becomes inflamed. The inflammation causes swelling, pain and tenderness around the bone.

Periostitis can occur on any bone, but it is most common on long bones such as the femur and tibia (the large leg bones).

Periostitis is also known as osteomyelitis, although these two conditions are different diseases. Periostitis causes pain and tenderness at the site of an injury, while osteomyelitis causes pain in multiple parts of the body with no clear injury being identified.

It is usually caused by an infection or repetitive strain on the bone, such as from sports injuries or overuse.

Periostitis most commonly occurs in the foot and ankle, but can also occur in other areas of the body such as the knee, shoulder, elbow and wrist.

What are the types of Periostitis?

Periostitis is a condition that affects the periosteum, which is the membrane that covers and protects bones. There are two main types of periostitis: acute and chronic.

Acute periostitis occurs when there is an increase in pressure on the bone, usually due to trauma or injury. In most cases, this type of periostitis resolves with time without treatment; however, it can lead to complications if not treated properly.

Chronic periostitis occurs when there is an underlying disease that causes inflammation in the bone. This type of periostitis may be caused by an infection, cancer, or other conditions that cause inflammation in the body’s tissues.

What are the causes of Periostitis?

Periostitis is a condition in which the periosteum, or outer layer of the bone, becomes inflamed.

This inflammation can be caused by any number of things, including:

  1. Broken bones, which can cause the bone to rub up against another bone or joint improperly, causing irritation and swelling of the periosteum
  2. Infection in the joint, which can cause an infection in the periosteum as well
  3. Inflammatory arthritis, which causes inflammation throughout the entire body (including joints) and can lead to periostitis

It can also be caused by a number of factors, including:

  • Infection
  • Trauma from an injury
  • Autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Infection from an open wound or a surgery site
  • Suffering from osteomyelitis, which is an infection of the bone tissue itself

What are the symptoms of Periostitis?

Symptoms of periostitis include:

  • Pain in your joints and muscles
  • A fever above 100 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Swollen lymph nodes in your armpits or groin area

What are the risk factors for Periostitis?

The risk factors for periostitis are similar to those for other types of inflammation. These include:

  • Poor blood circulation in the area of the periosteum (which can occur if there’s poor blood flow from diabetes or heart disease)
  • An unhealthy diet that includes too much sodium or sugar (which can cause high blood pressure)

Recommended Exercise

General Condition

What are the exercises for Periostitis?

Periostitis exercises can help to reduce the inflammation caused by this condition and help you to avoid further damage to your bones.

The following exercises are recommended for periostitis:

1) Stretching – Stretching can be a good way to reduce inflammation and improve mobility in your joints. It’s important that you don’t overstretch, though—you don’t want to cause further damage by pulling on the affected area too much.

2) Swimming – Swimming is great for periostitis because it helps to keep your muscles warm and flexible, which can reduce stiffness and pain in your joints. It also helps with blood flow throughout your body, which can also help with any swelling or inflammation that may be occurring as a result of this condition.

3) Weightlifting – Weightlifting is one of the best ways to strengthen your bones, which means that it’s highly recommended for anyone who has been diagnosed with periostitis or osteoporosis (which often goes hand-in-hand). However, it’s important that you don’t overexert yourself during these workouts.

What are the treatments for Periostitis?

The most common treatment for periostitis is anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen or naproxen sodium.

You can also try applying heat to the area with a heating pad or ice packs. If this doesn’t work, your doctor may recommend physical therapy or steroid injections into the joint.

Surgery may be necessary if there is no improvement after other treatments have failed.

Explanation of Recommended Orthotic Device

General Condition

What brace is used for Periostitis?

There are many different types of braces available to treat this condition, depending on your specific symptoms. Some of these include:

Ankle Braces

These help relieve pain and swelling in your ankles when you’re at rest or standing still for long periods of time.

Shin Splints Brace

This type of brace can be used to relieve pain caused by shin splints, which is an injury that occurs when muscles are overused or abused during exercise routines such as running or jumping sports (such as basketball).

How to prevent Periostitis?

The best way to prevent Periostitis is to take breaks during strenuous activity. If you are doing something that requires repetitive motion (like running), try walking instead.

You will still get all of the benefits of exercise without putting too much stress on your bones.

It is also important to make sure that you are properly hydrated before exercising as well as after exercising.

If you drink plenty of water before working out and then drink some more afterwards, you will help replenish your body with necessary nutrients so it can recover from any damage done during exercise!
