Rickets

Definition and classification The rickets is a skeletal pathology (osteopathy) with infantile onset, caused by a defect in the mineralization of the bone matrix and potentially responsible, in an advanced stage, for deformity and bone fractures. Based on the etiopathogenesis of rickets it is possible to classify it as: Rickitism due to altered intake of vit D (calciferol): lack of rickets rickets due to chronic intestinal malabsorption Rickets with altered hepatic metabolism of vit D: rickets in hepato-biliary diseases (hepatic osteodystrophy) chronic treatment rickets with anticonvulsant drugs

Arthrosis

What is Arthrosis Osteoarthritis - also called osteoarthritis or less correctly osteoarthritis - is a chronic disease that affects the joints ( arthropathy ). It is a degenerative type of disease, as it leads to the progressive loss of the normal anatomical components that form the joints. Osteoarthritis mainly affects the spine (the vertebrae) and the joints of the limbs, and is characterized by the loss of articular cartilage, which is replaced by new bone tissue; this causes pain and a limitation in movements

Coxa Valga

Generality The coxa valga is the deformity of the hip in which the angle existing between the head-neck complex of the femur and the body of the femur measures at least 140 degrees, that is at least 5 degrees more than that which represents normality. Image taken from en.wikipedia.org An example of valgus, coxa valga can be the result of some neuromuscular diseases (eg: cerebral palsy), some skeletal dysplasias (eg: mucopolysaccharidosis) or hip trauma at a young age, such as to alter the normal growth process of the femur

Coxa Vara

Generality The coxa vara is the deformity of the hip in which the angle existing between the head-neck complex of the femur and the body of the femur measures less than the minimum value considered normal, which is 120 degrees. Image taken from en.wikipedia.org An example of varus, the coxa vara can be a congenital deformity (ie present since birth) or acquired (that is, developed in the course of life, following some disease or other condition)

If these checks have shown a simple stretching of the neck muscles of the left side you need to know that this is an acute traumatic event that generally should be resolved within 15-30 days
