Rheumatoid Arthritis - 9 Ways You Can Manage the Discomfort

Rheumatoid Arthritis - 9 Ways You Can Manage the Discomfort

Rheumatoid arthritis is a painful disease of the joints, mostly affecting older people. It mostly results in swollen, aching joints that make movement extremely challenging. Rheumatoid arthritis results in receding and tenderness of the synovial membrane. This leads to a decline in flexibility, causing intense distress, thus hindering daily activities.

Steps to manage the discomfort caused by it

  1. There is no complete cure for Rheumatoid arthritis. The discomfort however, can be controlled to a certain extent with regular exercises, change in diet and medications.

  2. Regular exercise can help in increasing the flexibility, maintaining the synovial fluid between joints that help in lubrication.

  3. Home remedies including use of medical oils to massage the affected joints on a regular basis. In this case, there are several herbal or Ayurvedic oils available, that can provide temporary remedy.

  4. It is important to increase the intake of vitamin D. This can be done by spending a short while out in the sun every day. Vitamin D supplements are also available in the form of capsules.

  5. A decrease in the alcohol consumption is highly recommended to people with bones and joints disorders.

  6. Swimming is an excellent exercise as it causes minimal labour on the joints. It is extremely beneficial to all people.

  7. It is important to lose excess weight, so as to lessen the pressure on the joints.  For example, heavy and wide waist structure can affect the knees in the long run. It can help increase your energy level and help you function efficiently.

  8. Smoking and drinking affect almost all organs of the body eventually and lead to a painful death or physical abnormalities. It has been found that overindulgence in alcohol and tobacco can also flare up chances of rheumatoid arthritis.

  9. It has been found that rheumatoid arthritis mostly affects women. Therefore, women need to be exceptionally cautious about their daily exercise schedule and diet.

Dear lybrate-user, namaskar, this seems to be the begining of osteoarthritis of your knee joints which is not curable. Because this is aging. You can not stop your car tyres to wear and tear. And you can't stopdegenerating your body. If you are living. Visit an orthopadic surgeon in your vicinity for proper assesment, management and guidance. Take care.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I suppose that most of your issues can be ascribed to you being a diabetic and thus can be resolved by discussion with an endocrinologist / general physician who is managing your diabetes. If you have back pain with radiation to legs with associated symptoms than we can think of spine as a cause of your symptoms and then you may get in touch with me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Emotional Distress and Back pain
Back pain is one of the problems most often viewed by a physiotherapist.
In fact, four out of five person will have an back pain sometime during their life.
As luck would have it, the majority of patients with back pain gets relief and return to their normal life.
Only some people have longer episodes of back pain. When there is a suffering, It is quite normal to experience emotional reactions to  back pain. These responses can include fear, anxiety and worry  about what the pain means and what harms body have , how long it will last pain  and how much it affects daily life. In fact, pain is a complex experience that includes both physical and psychological elements.
Frequently back pain is also interrelated to a number of factors.
All of these recommendations are designed to cut the emotional concerns and stress most patients experience with pain. Anxiousness about pain and hurt can actually increase your feelings  of pain and decrease  your pain tolerance .

Thither is a cycle between our pain and thought process, as more pain perceived by our body more will it leads to distress, so then it becomes a cycle of more pain and more stress to our body.

Psychological problems about back pain leads to sleeplessness, irritability, and loss of interest in past habits.Sometimes pain increased up to a point that you want to get rid of it any cost.

In order to control psychological  disturbance , it is important to questions about your back pain from your physiotherapist  so you do not leave uncertain or distressed . To know about your pain will help lessen your anxiety.

During the early period, feelings of helplessness, aggression occur. In order to overcome this stress, you need to be sure that your physiotherapy  is attentive to all of your physiological and psychological problems .

You and your physiotherapist  have to do the following:

You can report your pain level and type of pain to your physiotherapist that it helps to make a correct diagnosis.

Be sure your physiotherapist help you in getting away your fears with special assessment concerned to your activities ,lifestyle and age.He also informs you about your condition and make appropriate tests to rule out any serious problem.

Be sure about your physiotherapist that what he is looking for and what is he excluding in making a diagnosis.

Your physiotherapist advises on your activity level and do and don't of specific activities will limit the progression of disease and help in positive outcomes.

The information you receive about your disease from your  disease about the cause of disease and amount of time it will take to come back also affects your pain and anxiety level, and if patients have more positive feelings about their illness than there is a more chance to enough and speedy recovery.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: 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.
