Wear knee cap so that you will feel firm while walking or climbing stairs. You have to strengthen the knee by doing quadriceps muscle strengthening exercises.

Arthritis - How Acupuncture is used to Treat it

Arthritis - How Acupuncture is used to Treat it

Acupuncture is a Chinese method of treatment which aims at maintaining the energy balance in the body. The procedure involves stimulating the energy channels of the body by using fine steel needles. It enhances the production of endorphins (pain controlling hormones) in the body, therefore less pain.

Signs you are suffering from arthritis

Arthritis is a disorder that is characterized by inflammation and swelling in the joints. The symptoms of arthritis are tenderness in the joints, fatigue, fever and stiffness in the joints that worsen in the morning. Initially, the smaller joints in the body are affected; it then progresses to joints in the elbows, wrists and the knees.

Causes behind it

Arthritis is caused when the immune system starts attacking the membrane surrounding the joints. Inflammation occurs, resulting in destruction of the bone and cartilage. It causes the ligaments and the tendons holding the joint to weaken. The joints then starts to lose their original alignment and shape.

Dietary guidelines you must follow

You need to follow dietary guidelines such as avoiding refined and processed foods as they can contribute to the inflammation of the joints. You also need to steer clear of foods which may trigger a reaction from your immune system. Mild exercises to strengthen the joints may be performed to improve mobility.

Acupuncture and arthritis

The procedure begins with the practitioner applying alcohol to the affected spot and tapping the area with a needle. The disorder determines the number of needles required, the spots of insertion and the depth to which they have to be inserted. The duration for which the needles are kept in the body ranges from a few minutes to an hour. In order to enhance the effect of the needles, they may be heated or energized electrically. You may experience a tingling sensation in case electricity is used.

Acupuncture is a holistic method of treatment that has no side effects. It does not involve chemicals; so it is safe to use. It will not cure the disorder, but can reduce the pain to a large extent. One of the added benefits of this procedure is that no matter, which part of the body is subjected to this process, it does help calm your mind down. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a acupuncturist and ask a free question.

The sound of the joint is called crepitus. The capsule and cartilage of the joint is loosening. So the sound comes. Do passive movement regularly. Reduce weight and use knee caps while walking.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold). Stretch calves get a custom made insole. Hams stretching. Sports taping. Hot fomentation.

My mother had left knee replacement 1 month ago.She is doing physiotherapy at home and has pain and heaviness of leg till now.When will it get reduced?operation was done on 30th January,2015.

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Full recovery from knee replacement can take up to 3-4 months and swelling can take upto an year to go, so don't worry as long as the the wound is healed and she is doing the knee mobilization and knee muscle strengthening exercises that would have been taught at the hospital. Try to keep the legs elevated when she's not walking to prevent leg swelling.
