I have arthritis problem, HLAB 27 is positive. Many a times I have suffered tremendously from joint pains and swelling and to cure, it usually takes 4-6months. Recently I have again having pain in my wrist and it swelled up a bit. Although I was highly active, very much involved in physical exercise for the prevention but still it recap. I am taking etoshine when I am having more pain. Any permanent cure for this? Any medication for this. Doctor said spondylo arthritis.

Yes with physical therapy you can strengthen your leg muscles and reduce wear and tear in knee joint but use of Osteoarthritis knee brace added to this will helps more to reduce pain and correct the pathology. For more guidance on this you can consult me.

Both knees pain at 58 is osteoarthritis. You need exercises to strengthen muscles around knees. Consult privately for further treatment.

Patient F 41 suffering with arthritis. Is there treatment in Homoeopathy / can we control by homeopathic medication. Pl. Guide now patient is on Allopathic treatment.

Most prolonged arthritis are really bad diseases which can make you cripple and can kill you also. So stronger allopathic medicines are used which can have side effects. However, if given judiciously they are safe and can be given for more than 20 years under supervision. Homeopathic medicines won't work and can actually let the disease get more sinister. So my advice would be continuing meds if pt is doing reasonably well.

What are the symptoms of osteoarthritis in relation to the different affected areas?

What are the symptoms of osteoarthritis in relation to the different affected areas?

What are the symptoms of osteoarthritis in relation to the different affected areas?

An osteoarthritis is a form of arthritis which means unexpected inflammation of the joints/muscles, which is usually very painful. This form of arthritis is not curable, and the only thing that you can do is to take measures to reduce the painful effects of the condition. The symptoms of the medical condition often occur gradually and are chronic and long lasting in nature. Some of the body parts that get affected easily are:

  • Hips- pain is felt in the groin area or buttocks at the hip joint.
  • Fingers- bony growths at the edge of joints can cause fingers to become swollen, tender and red. There may be a pain at the base of the thumb.
  • Knees- a 'grating' or 'scraping' sensation occurs when moving the knee.
  • Feet- pain and tenderness are felt in the large joint at the base of the big toe. There may be swelling in ankles or toes.

Some of the most common symptoms which are more common to all body parts are as follows:

  • Chronic painThe arthritis related pain is very intense and chronic in nature, and it has an ever increasing trend if proper care is not taken. This pain can appear in any body joint of a person and it can cause visible inflammation or swelling in and around the muscles of that particular joint.
  • Body stiffness - Another characteristic feature of this medical disorder is that there is stiffness in the normal movement of the joints and muscles. This symptom also results in a lack of flexibility of the concerned person.
  • Inflammation and tenderness - Osteoarthritis is such a condition which is observable by the naked eye, as it shows signs like inflammation and tenderness. Inflammation can be noticed if a joint has a considerable amount of swelling.

At your age a osteoporosis is a normal phenomenon which may cause joint gap. Though western medicine may offer pain killers or even surgery, ayurveda targets to stop the aging and degenerative process naturally and even reverse to certain extent. For further details please consult me.
