Treatments for Arthritis at Home

HEAT TREATMENTS: 

Hot baths, hot compresses. Heat is relaxing and soothing. It can help your joints move better with less pain by relaxing painfully tight muscles. Various forms of heat are frequently advised. These include hot baths, hot packs, heat lamps, and paraffin wax applications. A hot bath first thing in the morning may provide a better start to your day. Occasionally however, some people respond better to cold packs around an acutely inflamed joint than to heat.Hot compresses can be prepared by soaking towels in hot water, wringing them out, and applying to the painful area. Electric heating pads may be placed on the painful area for short periods of time.

COLD TREATMENTS:

 For some arthritic pains, cold treatment helps provide relief. An easy way to make a cold compress is by filling a plastic bag with ice cubes. Place a towel over the skin, and the icebag above the towel. Also, a towel can be soaked in ice water, wrung out, and placed on the painful area. A dry towel or piece of plastic wrap should be placed between the cold compress and the skin to protect the skin from effects of the cold compress.Some individuals find that alternating between heat and cold provides some relief. This is easier to do for hands and feet than other areas of the body,as hands and feet can be soaked alternately in hot or cold water. Usually, cold treatments are recommended for the first 24 to 48 hours after an acute injury.MASSAGE:Massage relieves tension and provides relaxation to the affected area. Deep kneading or gentle circular motions may be appropriate for different individuals and for different types of aches. For some areas of the body such as hands, knees, feet and neck, self-massage may be possible, for other are as assistance of a partner or professional masseur may be necessary.A recent advance in relieving or controlling pain is the transcutanous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS). When the individual wearing the TENS unit turn sit on, a low level of electricity is applied to designated areas of the body,sometimes producing a tingling sensation. The unit may be kept on a few minute sor a few hours, according to the needs of the individual. The size of the TENS units ranges from about the size of a package of cigarettes to larger device sused in medical centers.

 PHYSICAL THERAPY:

Physical therapy is often recommended in addition to exercises you can do at home. Some people need ongoing physical therapy, while others do well with an occasional series of therapy treatments, which are then followed by an at-home routine. You may be advised to have your therapy at a local hospital or health center or have a therapist visit you at home.

 EXERCISE:

Some of the stiffness and weakness of arthritis can be relieved with mild exercise. For some individuals, maintaining joint mobility and muscle strength can help prevent some of the crippling deformities caused by arthritis.

Swimming is a good exercise for individuals with arthritis because approximately one half of your body weight is supported by the water, it is easier to exercise and move in the water.Despite the presence of arthritis, you may continue to enjoy many forms of exercise, such as golf, tennis, boating, skating, skiing, or horseback riding.While the exercise you get in everyday living is helpful, there are exercises planned specifically for individuals with arthritis and specifically tailored for individual needs. 

HOW SHOULD YOU EXERCISE?

Be consistent and stick to your chosen set of exercise. Begin at a comfortable level and gradually increase the number of repetitions. Progress more slowly with rheumatoid joints that are prone to hot periods. With this gradual progression you will avoid unnecessary pain.

Exercises for arthritis should be performed with a slow, steady rhythm.

Give your muscles time to relax between repetitions of each exercise (10 to 15 seconds).It is important to coordinate your breathing with exercise. Breathe deeply and rhythmically as you exercise, never hold your breath. Interspersing deep breathing with exercise ensures an adequate oxygen supply to working muscles as well as release of tension. 

Deep breathing involves inhaling slowly and gently through your nose and drawing air down into your abdomen. Hold for at least five counts. Exhale slowly and gently through lightly closed lips for at least five counts.

Try few things for your back pain: - Apply Ice and Heat Heating pads and cold packs can comfort tender trunks. Most doctors recommend using ice for the first 48 hours after an injury -- particularly if there is swelling — and then switching to heat. You can use whichever you find comforting as long as your skin is protected. - Limit Bed Rest Studies show that people with short-term low-back pain who rest feel more pain and have a harder time with daily tasks than those who stay active. -Keep Exercising Activity is often the best medicine for back pain. Simple exercises like walking can be very helpful. But remember to move in moderation, Stay away from strenuous activities like gardening and avoid whatever motion caused the pain in the first place. -Maintain Good Posture most people have poor posture when going about their daily activities, putting unnecessary strain on their backs. -Strengthen Your Core Most people with chronic back pain would benefit from stronger abdominal muscles. If the abdominals are weak, other areas must pick up the slack. When we strengthen the abdominals, it often reduces the strain on the lower back. - Improve Flexibility Too much tension and tightness can cause back pain. By increasing flexibility you need to put an equal load throughout the body from the feet all the way up to the head. -Sleep the Right Way The amount of rest you get is important, and so is the position you get it in. Sleeping in a bad position or on a mattress without support can cause back pain. Back sleepers should put pillows under their knees. Side sleepers should place pillows between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position. Stomach sleeping causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back. -Use Relaxation Techniques Research shows that practices such as meditation, deep breathing and yoga, which help put the mind at rest, can do wonders for the back. -See a Specialist Developing an individualized exercise plan is essential to managing chronic back pain. Some patients need more core strengthening while others benefit mainly from stretching and improving flexibility. Please consult a Orthopedic Physiotherapist for the right exercise plan. Best wishes.

After a uterus & ovaries have been removed, patient will need hormone replacement therapy. The exact dose, a gynaecologist will be able to tell. Any way diabetes must be well controlled.

Osteoarthritis in Old Age - How It Can Be Prevented?

Osteoarthritis in Old Age - How It Can Be Prevented?

Are you aware of a disease called osteoarthritis that is more likely to develop in case you are aging? Osteoarthritis is a disease, which affects the joints of your body. It occurs when the cartilages that protect and cushion your bones break down, causing swelling and pain, and may make you immobile. The chances of developing osteoarthritis increase with age as your cartilages start breaking down. Women who are beyond menopause are at a higher risk of getting this disease as they do not produce estrogen, which is essential for bone growth. There are several precautions you should follow for the prevention of osteoarthritis, especially if you are aged. They are as follows:

  1. Manage your occupational risks
    • Certain jobs involve repetitive motions, which cause stress on your joints.
    • If your job or occupation involves a lot of lifting, twisting, kneeling, and walking, you should consult a doctor.
  2. Exercise
    • It is important for you to undertake exercises of low impact, which is very crucial for improving joint health, even if you are aging.
    • You should choose activities that involve strength training along with stretching and aerobic exercise.
    • Regular exercise helps in the slowing down or prevention of osteoarthritis. It helps you in maintaining healthy joints, reducing fatigue and pain, increasing your bone and muscle strength, and relieves stiffness.
  3. Maintaining a healthy body weight
    • Excess weight is a primary risk factor for osteoarthritis, especially if you are aged. It cxauses extra stress on your joints that boosts the deterioration of your joint cartilage.
    • If you are obese and overweight, your chances of developing osteoarthritis are more. Hence, you should lose extra weight for improving the symptoms.
  4. Rest
    • Although exercise is important for keeping your joints and muscles healthy, you should avoid overdoing them.
    • Have a balanced lifestyle, and when your joints become achy or swollen, give them a break.
    • Abstain from using your swollen joint for at least 12 to 24 hours after experiencing them. Letting your injured joint rest helps in reducing your risk of osteoarthritis.
    • Fatigue increases pain in osteoarthritis patients, and hence you must sleep properly.
  5. Control your blood sugar
    • Diabetes is considered to be an important risk factor for osteoarthritis in aged individuals.
    • High glucose levels may boost the formation of molecules that make your cartilage stiff.
    • Diabetes also triggers inflammation, and promotes cartilage loss.
    • It is important for you to keep your diabetes and blood sugar levels under control for preventing osteoarthritis.

In spite of no specific cure for osteoarthritis, there are several ways of preventing and managing its symptoms. It is very important for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, and also to try and keep away from becoming obese.
