My wife is 55 years old and a sugar patient also. Recently she is getting pain in the knee and she went for x-ray. The report showing that she is suffering from ostro-arthritis and she is taking Jointace C-2 and calcium tablets also. What should we do now.
Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.
Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.
Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the knee against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease of the joint, similar to Cataract which is degenerative disease of the crystalline lens of the Eye.
OA predominantly affects the knees in Asian population.
Wide range of treatments are available, depending on the severity of the degeneration.
Simple techniques like Weight loss, use of walking stick and physio exercises for knee are helpful in mild to moderate cases.
Medicines like jointace, diacerin, orcerin are usually prescribed in an attempt to halt the degeneration. Clinical success is widely debated among doctors. Intra articular injections (given in the knee joint) are available which improve lubrication. Good clinical results have been achieved in reducing pain for 6 to 12 months.
However, when all treatment modalities fail to keep pain under control or if pain is associated with one deformities (bow knees or knock knees), Knee replacement surgery offers permanent solution.
