My finger got hit by a hammer a year before. The pain is gone but the swelling is still there on the top of middle joint of finger. I keeps massaging it but its not going away.
On 6th September 2016 I broke my humeral bone due to arm wrestling. I was undergone a surgery to fix my fracture. A 8 screw plate was attached to realign my bone. I have no nerve damage and everything is fine. Ma'am I have a very big passion for weightlifting. I used to lift 25-30 KGS dumbbell and was regular to gym. NOw I'm highly demotivated and tensed about my left hand. Will I be able to gain that strength again? Can I lift heavy weight with this plate in my arm? Can I continue passion of weight lifting after full recovery? Will my hand be same as before with plate in it? What are the precautions to be taken if I do lift weight with plate in my arm. Please help me. Thank you.
Osteoarthritis is a Non Inflammatory disease that affects many joints, knee joint most common. In normal joint, a firm, rubbery material called cartilage covers the end of each bone. Cartilage provides a smooth, gliding surface for joint motion and acts as a cushion between the bones. In Osteoarthritis, the cartilage breaks down, causing pain, swelling and problems moving the joint. This disease, that mostly affects women, worsens over the time and should be treated as early as possible.
Symptoms Of Osteoarthritis
Symptoms of osteoarthritis vary, depending on which joints are affected and how severely they are affected. However, the most common symptoms are pain and stiffness, particularly first thing in the morning or after resting. Affected joints may get swollen, especially after extended activity. These symptoms tend to build over time rather than show up suddenly. Some of the common symptoms include:
- Sore or stiff joints – after inactivity or overuse
- Limited range of motion or stiffness that goes away after movement
- Clicking or cracking sound when joint bends
- Mild swelling around a joint
- Pain that is worse after activity or toward the end of the day
Treatment Options For Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is a chronic (long-term) disease. There is no cure, but treatments are available to manage symptoms. Long-term management of the disease will include several factors:
- Managing symptoms, such as pain, stiffness and swelling
- Improving joint mobility and flexibility
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Getting enough of exercise
Physical Activity: One of the most beneficial ways to manage OA is to get moving. While it may be hard to think of exercise when the joints hurt, moving is considered an important part of the treatment plan. Simple activities like walking around the neighborhood or taking a fun, easy exercise class can reduce pain and help maintain (or attain) a healthy weight. Strengthening exercises build muscles around OA-affected joints, easing the burden on those joints and reducing pain. Aerobic exercise helps to improve stamina and energy levels and also help to reduce excess weight. Talk to a doctor before starting an exercise program.
Weight Management: Excess weight adds additional stress to weight-bearing joints, such as the hips, knees, feet and back. Losing weight can help people with OA reduce pain and limit further joint damage. The basic rule for losing weight is to eat fewer calories and increase physical activity.
Stretching: Slow, gentle stretching of joints may improve flexibility, lessen stiffness and reduce pain. Exercises such as is great ways to manage stiffness.
Braces: For varus and valgus deformity of knee joint, brace very helpful like Unloader Knee Brace has importent role in Osteoarthritis knee.
Glucosamine/Chondroitin- Glucosamine/Chondroitin 1500 mg/1200 mg daily, they are diet supplement used in mild and moderate osteoarthritis knee. Major component of joint cartilage. Supplements are derived from the shells of shellfish (such as shrimp, lobster and crab) or from vegetable sources. Slows deterioration of cartilage, relieves osteoarthritis(OA) pain and improves joint mobility.
For Pain Management
- Intraarticular Glucocorticoids: Mainly Indicated when pain persist despite of pain killer. Its effective for short-term pain relief < 12 wks. There may be acute flare in pain 48 hrs post-injection.
- Hyaluronans (e.g. Synvisc): Its indicated when pain persists despite other agents. Its like Synthetic joint fluid. Pain relief similar to steroid injections. 60-70% patients respond well , pain relief approx 6 months to 1 year
Knee pain or functional status has failed to improve with non-operative management
Types of Surgery
- Arthroscopic Irrigation
- Arthroscopic Debridement
- High Tibial Osteotomy
- Partial Knee Arthroplasty
- Total Knee Arthroplasty
Which type of surgery you require it will be decide by your orthopaedic surgeon after clinical and radiological examination.
Joint Replacement Surgery: Joint surgery can repair or replace severely damaged joints, especially hips or knees. A doctor will refer an eligible patient to an orthopaedic surgeon to perform the procedure.
Knee replacement has become the most common form of joint replacement surgery. Between 1991 and 2010, the incidence of knee replacements increased by over 161%, due partly to improvements in the science of knee replacement implants, experience of surgeons, and the growing population of knee replacement patients. Although public perception can be influenced by negative advertising and press, the fact is that knee replacement surgery is one of the most successful surgical procedures performed today.
Success rates and quality of life improvements for knee replacement patients are reliably very high. Nine out of 10 knee replacement patients experience an immediate relief from knee pain, and 95% report they are satisfied with their procedure. Approximately 90% of replacement knee joints last 10 years, while 80% are good for 20+ years, depending on patient health and activity levels. Outcomes vary from patient to patient depend upon level of deformity and grade of Osteoarthritis.
Positive Attitude: Many studies have demonstrated that a positive outlook can boost the immune system and increase a person's ability to handle pain.
- People with endocrine disorders are prone to osteoarthritis. This includes hypothyroidism. You must immediately begin medications if you are diagnosed with thyroid conditions.
- In several cases, osteoporosis is genetic. One may inherit a tendency to develop bone deformities as he/she ages.
- X-ray after regular intervals helps the doctors to understand the condition of your bones and joints. This helps to prescribe exercises, medications and diet accordingly.
- Yoga helps to maintain joint flexibility and increase bone strength. It also helps to prevent stress and anxiety.
- A diet rich in protein and calcium helps to prevent degeneration and brittleness in bones. It is important to go out into the sun once in a while and soak up as much vitamin D as possible. This is a very healthy habit and contributes to the well-being of the entire skeletal systems.

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.
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 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.
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.
