One of the worst health conditions a person may ever reach is any problems with bones. It is our catharsis, base, fundament, ground. Thus, it is critical to take care of these building blocks of the organism. Bone infections are especially dangerous as they can destroy the skeleton completely. One of the disorders which make patients feel like their bones are smashed or cracked is a so-called osteomyelitis. It is a serious bone infection which quickly spreads over the body using bones as the bridges.
Once it achieves the main target, bloodstream, the infection becomes rather dangerous and even life threatening. It may also expand from the tissue close to the bloodstream. The problem takes place inside the damaged bone. A disease processes the injured bone to microorganisms. Lower extremities and upper areas of top extremities are usually infected, especially when talking about little patients. As for the grown-up population, osteomyelitis will most likely occur in the spine (a.k.a. vertebrae).
