Artwork of osteoarthritis of the spine

Osteoarthritis. Artwork of the lower (lumbar) spine showing the degenerative effects of osteoarthritis. The cartilage that lines the joints between each vertebrae (coloured purple) is considerably reduced. Also, bony outgrowths are seen forming on the edges of the lower 3 vertebrae, these are known as osteophytes. Osteo- arthritis is a joint disease aggravated by mechanical stress. It is usually associated with old-age but may occur in the young as a result of injury or congenital deformity. Symptoms include pain, stiffness and swelling of the affected joints. There is no cure but symptoms can be relieved using drugs against pain & inflammation

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the artwork of osteoarthritis of the spine, specifically focusing on the lower (lumbar) region. The degenerative effects of osteoarthritis are vividly depicted, revealing a significant reduction in the cartilage that lines the joints between each vertebrae, beautifully colored in purple. Moreover, this artwork also highlights the formation of bony outgrowths known as osteophytes along the edges of the lower three vertebrae. Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that is aggravated by mechanical stress and commonly associated with old age. However, it can also occur in younger individuals due to injury or congenital deformity. Symptoms experienced by those affected include pain, stiffness, and swelling in their joints. Unfortunately, there is no cure for osteoarthritis; however, drugs targeting pain relief and inflammation can help alleviate these symptoms. This thought-provoking image not only serves as an artistic representation but also provides valuable insight into this debilitating condition. It reminds us of both our vulnerability to joint disorders and the importance of proper medical care and attention to maintaining our spinal health. Captured by Science Photo Library's talented photographers specializing in medical imagery, this print offers a unique perspective on osteoarthritis while emphasizing its impact on our overall well-being.
