Osteoarthritis is a condition that causes cartilages in the joints of a human body to wear away. The joints in your body are made of bones and the ends of each bone have cartilages to prevent friction between them. Certain factors like age, nutrition or health threats can cause the cartilages to break down into bits and pieces. As a result, bones come into direct contact with one another causing the joints to swell or to turn tender.
Take a look at the following factors that can cause osteoarthritis
- Stress on specific joints due to certain postures: The triggering cause behind acute joint pain could be the way you sit for long hours in a day. A sportsperson might face joint pains due to his or her occupation. Similarly, any person required to sit or stand for a long stretch of time due to his/her jobs can suffer from osteoarthritis as well.
- There might be a deformity in any of your joints: A person born with joint deformities might suffer from arthritic problems later in life. Severe accidents can lead to deformities too.
- You may have suffered injuries that resulted in the condition: Joint pains needn’t always require an impactful injury. Mild or heavy injuries can lead to arthritis all the same. Defects in the joint cartilage could be passed on through genes.
- Age could also be a contributing factor: If a person is aging, his or her chances of developing osteoarthritis increase manifold. Age can make your bones and cartilages go weak. As you grow older, the capacity of your bones to absorb nutrition also decreases.
Prevalent symptoms that help you identify osteoarthritis
- A grinding sensation in the joints: A person suffering from osteoarthritis will experience continual bouts of grinding pain in the joints. This may keep him or her from walking, sitting, working or even resting. The grinding sensation is indeed disabling.
- You tend to face stiffness in the bones: Patients with this kind of arthritis have been reported with lacking flexibility in their joints. If they are sitting for too long, or have been inactive for some time or might have just woken up from sleep, they are likely to experience stiffness in their bones. Joints even turn sore in such situations.
- Extra bits of bones could create trouble: Extra bits of bones that develop at a later age are also referred to as bone spurs. They stick around the sore area and make movement a real challenge.
Modes of treatment
If osteoarthritis is detected at an early age, it can be fought against using medications. However, when the disease is really discomforting, treatment procedures like acupuncture or regimented exercising can help a patient. Yoga also does wonders to remedy joint pain. Surgical procedures are also available but they should be fallen back upon as a lender of the last resort.
Asperger's Syndrome or Asperger's Disorder is a neurotypical condition that affects the development of the child the effects of which continue into adulthood. This condition typically shows up as difficulties faced by the patient when it comes to social interactions as well as other nonverbal means of communication. It should not be confused with autism as the patient has no speech and cognitive development delay.
Asperger's syndrome can show up as restricted and repetitive patterns in the behaviour of the patient. It lies at the higher end of the autism spectrum and the signs are usually less obvious.
Here are a few ways with which you can effectively deal with someone who is suffering from this disorder:
- Routine: The patient suffering from this condition will need a certain kind of stability as it is very difficult to predict what will happen in the near future or to even plan for it. The best way to tackle this scenario is with the help of a proper routine that can help the patient achieve some kind of control over the situation surrounding him or her so that he or she is better equipped and more capable of handling normal functioning and social situations as well.
- Information: It is also a good idea to help these patients in looking at and in processing information. While normal people may easily be able to discard insignificant or unimportant information, the brain of the patient suffering from asperger's syndrome does not allow him or her to do so. In many cases, the patient is not able to filter the important and the unimportant information. This can debilitate many functions. So, it is important to be present to help the patient in making decisions and processing information that is actually relevant to his or her functioning.
- Learning: One of the most crucial things to remember with the Asperger's patient is that they tend to understand and process things when they have a visual presentation rather than being told verbally. So showing them things practically in the proper manner is the right way to help them learn and process situations in a correct way. This will prevent them from doing things in the same old way even when their brains tell them that it will lead to wrong results.
- Physical Abilities: Poor motor skills as well as lack of proper organisation skills are traits that usually characterise these patients. It is important to make them aware of this during games and activities that require management as well as use of social skills. For example, football and other such activities can be introduced in the routine. This will promote interaction with the team in order to play and enjoy the game.
- Pharmacotherapy: It is therapy in which pharmaceutical drugs are used as distinguished from therapy using surgery (surgical therapy), radiation (radiation therapy), movement (physical therapy), or other modes. It is highly beneficial in treating Asperger's Syndrome.
The knee is one of the largest and most important joints of our body. It is also susceptible to wear and tear as well as injuries. Knee pain can occur due to a variety of reasons starting from conditions like arthritis and osteoporosis as well as injuries that can affect the ligaments, the joint, the menisci and femur. These are the various parts of the knees, which can suffer from degeneration or even injuries. The best way to combat chronic knee pain is through rest, ice compress and with the help of pain relieving and anti-inflammatory medication.
While rest and ice compress for chronic knee pain and pain relieving and anti-inflammatory medication are the best ways to combat knee pain, orthopaedics also recommend the use of various strengthening exercises which can alleviate knee pain. Here are a few of the best ones:
- The Towel Hook: Lie down flat on your back and raise one leg, Hook a towel under the foot and press it against the towel as you pull both ends downwards, creating slight pressure. This can be done for a few seconds at a time. Remember to do this at least ten times for each foot and increase gradually. This exercise helps in strengthening your entire leg from the calf to the knee and even the thighs so that the pain subsides.
- Towel Roll: In towel roll exercise, after pushing knee, should do dorsiflexion and hold for 20 seconds.. Hamstring exercises are also given by placing roll towel under your feet, push down, dorsiflexion and hold for 20 seconds Adductor exercises are also given by placing small ball between your legs just above the knee joint, press and hold for 20seconds.
- Swing: For this exercise, you will need to sit down on a chair. Now take one leg and swing it up until it is in line with your hip. Hold it out like this before you slowly bring it down again. Do this at least twenty to thirty times for each leg and gradually increase the frequency and the number of seconds for which you hold the knee. This will also help in pain management.
- Knee Marches: You can also do knee marches by sitting down on a chair. You will need to march each knee up and down at least twenty to thirty times. You will need to do this for a few minutes every day and you can easily do it twice a day even when you are at work, sitting in front of a desk. You must ensure that your posture is straight and upright for this exercise.
Prolonged diabetes and high sugar levels can cause damage to nerves and blood vessels. This results in foot numbness and wounds on the foot do not heal and change color with time. There are two types of diabetic foot problems that affect people who have prolonged diabetes: Diabetic Neuropathy and Peripheral Vascular Disease. These are described as follows:
Diabetic neuropathy is a condition in which the patient has numbness in the foot. Such a condition makes it difficult for the patient to feel the pain and sensation in the foot.
Peripheral Vascular Disease:
Peripheral vascular disease results in the problem of blood flow in hands and legs. Fat deposits block blood flow which further causes heart problems.
Apart from these, the nerve damage in diabetic patients can also be caused due to high sugar levels, high blood pressure, and weight issues. This may lead to neurological problems including lack of sensation in the foot. In such cases, patients tend to have soreness and irritation in their feet but that is not felt by them. Such neurological problems require immediate attention from doctors.
The signs of diabetic feet differ from person to person. However, the symptoms mentioned below are common with such diseases:
A color change of the foot
Wounds on foot which are not healing
Numbness in foot
Tingling and deformity
Red streaks and stains on socks
Diabetic Foot Management Practices:
Keeping feet healthy and clean is the key to managing a diabetic foot. Keeping a few things in mind will help the sugar patient delay or prevent diabetic foot problems. Some of these are:
Check feet on a routine basis for any kind of change. This can be done by the patient himself or someone else.
Wash and clean feet.
Wear cotton socks which are comfortable and support feet the whole day. Shoes should be worn with proper fitting and size so that deformity in the feet does not occur.
Do feet exercises (or full body exercises if possible) daily to promote blood flow.
Trimming nails is essential. Looking to ingrown and remove them to avoid infections is also an important preventive measure.
It is essential to keep a check on blood sugar. The sugar should be checked daily and it is also suggested to keep a log for the same.
Smoking is prohibited and should be avoided to lower the risk of the diabetic foot.
Prevention of Diabetic Foot:
Diabetes can cause problems in many parts of the body and foot is very common to get affected among diabetic patients. It is necessary to prevent and take cautions that can lead to foot ulcers, infections, gangrene, and foot deformity.
A diabetic foot disease can lead to amputation of feet. Contact a doctor when you notice foot problems like ulcers, infections and tingling sensation. There are different treatments available in medical science for managing diabetic foot and diabetic neuropathy.
Successful procedures like endocrine surgeries have been found to be very useful for fighting diabetic foot problems. The surgery is performed on the patient to remove decaying tissues and glands. Surgery may vary depending upon the condition of the patient. However, it has been noticed that with proper care and prevention of diabetic foot problems can be treated with non-surgical treatments of medicine as well.
Diabetic feet are one of the most common problems that may occur to diabetic patients. This is why it is advisable to consult a doctor as soon as a patient experiences or notices any of the symptoms.

Heart issues don’t always come with warning bells or obvious signs of physical distress like the typical pain in the chest, breathlessness or palpitations. Some symptoms of heart problems do not even occur in the chest, which makes it difficult to identify the real issue.
Here are some signs of heart distress to look out for:
This is the most typical sign of a heart problem. If your artery is obstructed and you are having a heart attack, you may experience feelings of pain or squeezing and crushing sensation in your chest. Each person describes it differently, ranging from the feeling of a heavy object on the chest to burning pain.
The discomfort may continue for a few minutes and it can occur when you are lying down or when you are active. If it is a moment’s pain and increases with pressure, then it might not be heart-related. But many times the heart problems, especially in women, elderly and diabetics can occur without chest pain.
One heart-related symptom that is not as common as chest pain is an upset stomach which might manifest as a stomach ache, vomiting or acidity. Since these symptoms are generally associated with the flu or a stomach infection, they get overlooked in connection with a heart ailment.
However, if you believe that your last meal should not have led to these symptoms then it is important to get medical attention to ensure that you are not potentially suffering from a heart attack. Also, it’s essential to remember that women have greater chances of experiencing an upset stomach in relation to heart disease, as compared to men.
Sudden onset of pain in the arm, neck, jaw or upper back-
These symptoms are frequently due to a heart attack or angina, especially if they appear suddenly and are accompanied by uneasiness, breathlessness or sweating. In the case of angina, they may disappear totally after a few minutes. Often these are mistakenly attributed to cervical spondylosis, toothache or muscular pains.
You can feel dizzy and lightheaded for a lot of reasons. A momentary loss of balance can be brought on by inadequate food or water consumption or sudden or abrupt movement. But, if you are experiencing unsteadiness accompanied by discomfort in the chest and shortness of breath, then there is a strong possibility that you are having a heart attack. In this case, it is important to immediately get medical help.
Pain in the windpipe and mouth area-
Pain in the throat and mouth area by itself is not a sign of a heart problem. It is usually a symptom of a cold or sinus blockage. However, if you have pain in the chest that travels up to your throat and mouth region then it could be a possible sign of a heart attack. You should get medical help to ascertain the cause.
Lack of energy-
If your regular activities like taking a walk or doing chores have started to wear you out, then you should contact your doctor immediately. These changes could be important indicators of a bigger health problem. Particularly for women, severe fatigue and weakness stretching on for days can be a symptom of heart problems.
A sudden onset of a cold sweat without any clear reason could be a possible sign of a heart attack. If this occurs along with other symptoms, get medical help immediately.
Swelling in the lower limbs-
Your legs, ankles, and feet might get swollen when your heart does not supply blood properly. You could have abnormal blood flow in the veins causing bloating. Additionally, heart problems can also affect the kidney’s function of removing water and sodium leading to bloating.
A consistent cough-
Usually, a persistent cough does not indicate heart disease, but if you do have existing heart problems then you should be more alert. If you have a cough that is more prominent on lying down and on exertion and is accompanied by breathing difficulty, it could mean that the heart is not functioning properly causing blood to accumulate in the lungs. Make sure to consult with your doctor if you experience this symptom.
It is common for your heart to quicken or skip a beat when you are excited. However, if your heart skips a beat for more than a few seconds or if it happens too frequently and is accompanied by dizzy spells, you should contact your doctor.
If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, you should get yourself checked. Quick response and medication at the right time can repair the circulation in your heart and save your life.
