I have joint pain. Osteoarthritis. I have noticed that drinking water stored in copper pitcher has mitigated the pain to some extent. Is it just coincidental or there a better explanation for that?

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Copper which is required mineral to our body and its usage will reduce infection which spread through drinking water and copper physiology is stated Copper is both essential and toxic to living systems. As an essential metal, copper is required for adequate growth, cardiovascular integrity, lung elasticity, neovascularization, neuroendocrine function, and iron metabolism. An average adult human ingests about 1 mg of copper per day in the diet; about half of which is absorbed (Harris 1997). An expert committee of the World Health Organization recommends 30 micrograms (µg) per kilogram (kg) of body weight per day, which equates to about 2 mg per day for an average adult (WHO 1996). The Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) recommends dietary copper intake of 1.5–3.0 mg per day for adults (NRC 1989).

Sitting job giving back pain is very common in my patients. You will need modification of posture and changes in chair. It is because of muscle weakness and you will need to strengthen your back muscles. Calcium and Vitamin D medicines will help.

Exercise is the only way out to release the compression on sciatic nerve. Lie down on back with extended knee and elbow joint. Raise your one leg keeping other leg parallel to the ground, hold for 25 sec, then slowly bring down. Do the same with opposite leg, and then with both legs.

After fusion also,its not confirmed to have 100% relief in pain. I will suggest you to do strengthening exercises and take proper physiotherapy for some time, if problem doesnt cure than u can opt for surgery, because this is the last u can do. Else post op exercises need to be followed.

Arthritis? Types of Arthritis? Food to eat and food to avoid for Arthritis.

Arthritis means Joint inflammation caused due to stiffness, swelling, pain in the joints. People from all the ages, sexes, races can and do have arthritis.

The most common type of Arthritis is osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid.

Best food for Arthritis-
Low Fat Diary products like Milk, Yogurt, and cheese are packed with calcium and vitamin, both are found to increase bone strength.

Have oily Fish like Tuna, Salmon, sardines for Arthritis. Having marine life for your meal could calm arthritis- Inflammation.

Onion, Garlic, Leeks have been proven to fight inflammations.

Have unsalted nuts and seeds.

Have fresh fruits, especially pineapples, cherries, oranges, kiwi fruits, berries.

Have fresh vegetables like carrots, beets, and zucchini.

Whole grain cereals.

A well-balanced diet rich in antioxidant, i.e. Green, red, yellow, orange fruits, and vegetables goes a long way in preventing the progression of Arthritis.

There are few types of food to be avoided during Arthritis which can worsen Arthritis symptoms.

Aerated Beverages, Eggplants, caffeine, Read meat (Fatty meat),Tomatoes, Whole fat milk, Junk food, Alcohol, food with high sugar

Exercise
It was thought that people with arthritis should not exercise because it would damage their joints when the arthritis is under control people with arthritis can improve their health and fitness through exercise, without hurting their joints. It can give you more energy, help you sleep better, control your weight, make your bones and muscles stronger, decrease fatigue, If you have arthritis, you have more reasons to exercise:

Keep your joints from becoming too stiff.

Keep the muscles around your joints strong.

Keep bone and cartilage tissue strong and healthy.

Improve your overall fitness.
What happens without exercise?

If you don't exercise, your muscles become smaller and weaker, and your bones can become more brittle. Many people with arthritis keep their joints in a bent position because it's more comfortable. If the joints stay in one position for too long (without movement) they can become stuck in that position. If this happens, you may even lose the use of those joints. Exercise moves these joints and helps keep them as flexible as possible.

Keep ice to reduce the inflammation of the shoulder and you can use a pillow while lying to hike the shoulder as you might feel better everyday morning without pain. And also it looks like subluxation of shoulder ie. Shoulder gets pulled out at times when there is weakness. And also you can go for an xray to check for the shoulder anatomical position so there we can rule out whether there is mild dislocation of the shoulder.
