Everything you Need to Know about Shoulder Arthritis Treatment

Everything you Need to Know about Shoulder Arthritis Treatment

The shoulder is one of those joints in your body that enjoys the maximum wear and tear by virtue of being an extremely mobile joint and one of the most over-worked as well. This increases the risk of dislocation and instability. Arthritis is one of the most common causes of pain, as per various medical reports and is usually found to affect the tendons, ligaments, and even the muscles and joints of the body due to excessive wear and tear. There are various kinds of shoulder arthritis and treatments that are available. Read on to find out more.

  1. Rheumatoid Arthritis: This autoimmune condition creates stiffness in the shoulders along with rheumatoid nodules or small bumps under the skin of this region. It may affect both shoulders at the same time. Swelling or inflammation of the joints is a common occurrence in this condition along with fever, fatigue and weight loss.

  2. Osteoarthritis: This form of arthritis basically has to do with wear and tear of the connective tissue and bones. The symptoms are pretty severe and can go from tenderness to pain and stiffness with an increased risk of bone fractures.

  3. Post Traumatic Arthritis: PA or post traumatic arthritis occurs due to an injury in the shoulder and can cause instability as well as dislocation of the shoulder. A sports injury is the most common cause of this kind of arthritis. Pain and inflammation are the most common outcomes of this kind of injury and arthritis.

  4. Avascular Necrosis: When the tissues of the shoulder joints go through damage, it leads to this form of arthritis. Joint dislocations and fractures are the most common causes of this kind of damage. This usually happens because blood flow does not happen over the long arm bone to reach the shoulders due to the damage rendered to the tissue. Excessive alcohol consumption and high steroid intake can also lead to this damage.

  5. Rotator Cuff Tear Arthropathy: This kind of arthritis is caused due to a rip in the shoulder cuffs.

Treatment Measures-

The most common forms of treatment include surgery like joint replacement surgery (replacing the damaged parts of the shoulder with an artificial prosthetic joint), Arthroscopy (cleaning out of the joint with minor incisions), and resection arthroplasty (removing the bone from one’s collarbone). Also, corticosteroid injections can be given and anti-inflammation drugs like ibuprofen can be prescribed for this condition. Exercises and physical therapy will also be helpful in such cases so as to strengthen the shoulder and joints.

It is important to also make lifestyle changes to give rest to the shoulder and abstain from too much alcohol consumption.

At her age, these kind of problems are common, so better you get a proper examination of her knee done by an orthopaedician and physiotherapist and then continue the treatment prescribed. As far as medicines is concerned, you can try ayurveda, homeopathy or allopathy whatever you feel feasible.

Plantar fascitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia or arch tendon of the foot. It is an overuse injury causing heel pain which may radiate forward into the foot. Plantar fasciitis can also be known as a heel spur although they are not strictly the same. A heel spur is a bony growth that occurs at the attachment of the plantar fascia to the heel bone (calcaneus). A heel spur can occur (with repetitive pulling of the plantar fascia) on a foot with no symptoms at all and a painful heel can have no heel spur present. Treatment: shoes: wear shoes with heels made from soft rubber instead of leather and replace them regularly. Footwear selection is also an important criteria when treating heel pain. The right shoes can play a major role in relieving discomfort. Use homeopathic remidy rhustox 200 three doses for three days.

From two days I am having pain in my back neck. What medicine should I prefer to cure it, it hurts when I rotate my neck?

BAMS
Ayurveda, Bangalore
You can apply any analgesic ointments or gels or sprays 4-5 times per day. Avoid hard pillows. Use soft pillow while sleeping. You can take analgesic tablets orally. You can even go for a mild oil massage. If the pain does not subside within 2-3 days with the above measures, get yourself checked by a doctor for further treatment.

Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface.

Gentle Shoulder Stretching. Core Strengthening Exercises. Gentle Neck Exercises. Avoid sleeping on affected side. Warm up and cool down is a must. Contrast bath---It is a form of treatment shoulder is applied warm water followed by the immediate application of the shoulder with ice water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Note that the treatment should always end in the ice water, as heat will induce the body's inflammatory response, while cold helps to decrease inflammation.

In such type of cases Patient is advised for skin traction bed rest for 3. Months along with physiotherapy. If bone not unite in such duration then it will goes to 4or5 or6 mths according to fracture healing. There are lots of patients which Are not operated due to lots of diseases but their fracture unite in 3_4monts. In such cases there is slight shortening of leg happen but can managed by modified footwear.
